I've been intrigued by the Corneliani ID sport coat -- the one with the working buttons up the lapel and the zip out faux-sweater. Here's a link to a picture and description: http://patrickjames.com/product.aspx...uct=1852BLAC50 I know there are mixed opinions here on the board on the style itself, but at this point, I've decided I like the style & versatility of the jacket (though I can't imagine wearing it very often --if ever -- with that faux-sweater actually zipped in). I've seen it only once in person, but I found out that it is on sale at a few locations now for ~$900-ish. I think it's potentially worth it if it's canvased, but there's absolutely no way I'm paying that much for a fused sports coat. Unfortunately, I can't get my hands on the jacket to check myself. On other threads, I've seen it said that Corneliani main line is canvased and that Trend and CC lines are fused (which matches my own experience w/ Corneliani). But I've gotton conflicting info on Corneliani ID. On the Corneliani website, "Corneliani ID" is listed as a subset of their mainline Corneliani clothes, and the price point seems to be comparable to mainline Corneliani. Can anyone comment on this with absolute certainty? Many thanks in advance.
