All the BC jackets I have (only about 3 so take this w/a grain of salt) and most I've seen (even cashmere ones) have been 1/4-1/2 lined. On all of these, the canvass (allbeit half or less) is floating. Never pinched a fully lined jacket to test. The cashmere usually speaks for itself
rest of the construction wise, yes, its mostly machined.....but the "quality" vs a mostly handmade garment is another debate. See Kabbaz vs SF/AAAAC

I think anyone who can say one is > than the other is obviously biased and is probably judging on one garment vs another in their own experience.
The net net is you pay extra dollars for BC (and LP for that matter) for its designs and "exclusivity"....worn out cliche, but the same as buying a toyota vs a lexus, etc
