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.
Agreed. I think the poster is being swayed by differences in fit as opposed to differences in quality of construction.
On a side note, I was at Bergdorf over the weekend and the new offerings from Kiton are
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.
