Is that Boglioli Sartoria?

I may be wrong but to my recollection Boglioli does make fully canvassed garment for their "Sartoria" line and the Bergdorf Goodman's Boglioli as well.

i'm not sure but no "sartoria" and "BG" can be found from the suitsmile.gif

It's a total crapshoot.

My michaelangelo expirience has not been full canvas and not that nice.

My bogioli expirence has been mixed. Some full canvas and some half.

Just like BG orders them to spec, it depends on the boutique which originally had the boglioli to begin with.

1.  Where would the Benjamin suits (from eHaberdasher) fit in the list?

post #936 of 1302
Somewhere between Good and Satisfactory. It's a very well made, full canvas suit, but it's not on the level of, e.g. Caruso. It's also $1500 cheaper, so...

I'd add the Swedish "Brothers" chain of budget menswear. While their mainline suits are at best mediocre with a lot of blends and fused construction, their Tailoring Club branded suits are half-canvassed, well-finished, mostly classically styled all-wool suits that fit well in the Satisfactory category.

That's a good add.

 

How would you compare TTC to Suitsupply? Both in suits and in other clothing.

Sorry, no personal experience with Suitsupply. They're roughly at the same pricepoint and from what I've heard the quality should be similar too. I just bought a TTC suit because it fit me extremely well off the rack, and I had no chance to sample Suitsupply before buying where I live (Finland).

I can't be bothered to rank with stars all the brands I've tested, so I'll just invite thread followers to glance at the in-depth reviews I've written up here -- the only comprehensive one-post review of its kind by a single owner I've seen so far:

Thanks for this. I believe Lardini makes the Brooks Brothers "Made in Italy" line.

I'm curious about two things. Firstly, where would Lee Baron's executive suits slot in? Secondly, what about Armani's Metropolitan line? Considering the popularity of the latter, does it really only come in fused models with synthetic fibres in the weave?

Where should Epaulet be on the list?

After reading through the thread and seeing who was assigned a *** rating I'd have to say that Southwick half-canvassed made for Epaulet is a **

I like them, but they're priced about exactly where they belong and rather tough to find at a discount.

Can anyone comment on the OTR line from Martin Greenfield that gets distributed through Gilt? You can find them for as low $500-600 at clearance. And they're full-canvas too, no?

I'm surprised Indochino is not listed somewhere
