Haha dont put it that way. Kiton is still top of the food chain when it comes to RTW which is what this list is about really. my point which i think you agreed with is that TF, RLPL, and Zegna Couture should be up there because they really are some of the best RTW you can get.

I own two of both.  Canali is just so well made in the chest, shoulders, through the sleeve.   Maybe it is the fit on me.  The handiwork can be perceived as similar. Long term the Canalis seem to stand up.

I own one Canali - have owned two in the past - and probably 5 or 6 Samuelsohn MTM at present.  Nothing whatsoever in my experience suggests that Canali "blows away" Samuelsohn MTM.

Agreed.  I think the poster is being swayed by differences in fit as opposed to differences in quality of construction.

Where do Hart, Schnaffner, and Marx and Jack Victor rank?

On a side note, I was at Bergdorf over the weekend and the new offerings from Kiton are inlove.gif

Satisfactory at the very best--probably Mediocre to Poor.

HSM used to be pretty good stuff, but the new stuff is garbage.

Question: I am 30 years old, 165lbs, 6ft,  and  I like fitted (maybe some can call it slim-fitting) suits like Zegna's Torino or RLBL. Can I find cuts like these in the top two tiers?! Tom Ford was like a freaking blanket to me when I tried on 38R. I have also tried on ISAIA and RLPL, both baggy.

Pal Zileri Green Label is relatively slim fitting. As I understand it, it's the youth oriented part of their Sartoriale line. The ones I have seen are drop 8.

What's a drop 8? My RLBL has drop 6

Never mind, the better question is how is it important?

Paraphrasing onix in another thread, Drop = difference between chest size and pant size. For example, a 40R suit with a drop 7 means a pant size of 33". The greater the drop, the "slimmer" the cut. Most suits are drop 6 or 7.

post #778 of 1310
I was told it is the difference between the chest size, and the size of the jacket's waist rather than the pants. Can someone confirm either way?
post #779 of 1310
The 'someone' who told you is ignorant.

Redboat is correct
