i mentioned in another topic, which no one responded to, that there is a barneys new york clearance sale going on in santa monica. i asked if anyone had any info on the barneys private label suits; apparently not. i have just returned from there and i bought a beautiful three-button suit with side vents and what the salesman told me was super 120s cloth made by marzotto lab (never heard of it). it is a medium gray with light gray stripes and i love it. btw, while i was there i tried on a $3500 isaia and i told myself "this is how a suit should be made." the shoulders have no padding, the angle is slightly sloped, so it looks truely natural, and the shoulder seams are actually on the shoulder, where they belong, bellissississimo. the size 40 fit me perfectly, whereas i like the size 38 on all the other suits. one day i will get one just like it- on sale-of course.
