Dark gray. It's a great fabric.

If the suit looks and fits great, I really don't care what the internals look like. Maybe you should try yours on once you get them? I think you'll find them to your liking. Besides, surely you didn't expect the finest Neapolitan tailoring for $250.

just got my suit minutes ago.

im stoked, the suit material is very nice. from my uneducated eye and feel for the fabric, i would say it is on par with regular isaia line. if someone said it was, i wouldnt doubt it.

it doesnt feel like a fused suit as well. i agree with above it is half canvassed cuz im sure it cant be full canvassed for the price it is offered up at.

the navy windowpane is beautiful . the greatest part is the fit. it fits perfectly and slim. the cut is amazing. i agree about the shoulders, it looks young and nicely shaped. havent tried the trousers but they look almost exquisite too.

all in all, i would say the 260 is a steal for this suit this may end up one of my greatest value bargains i have ever bougth from gilt.

Agreed! When I took the suits to my tailor to have them finished, she was really impressed with them. I'll definitely snatch up more next time they show up on Gilt.

definitely. im not sure how soon and if they will. but if they have a 50r in a charcoal or stripe charcoal or any pattern charcoal or grey i would get one as well. these are such a great deal. enjoy your suit

Just purchased a Ce' Luca wool suit on GILT MAN. GILT was advertising it as a Corallo Rosso but in the suit description details, they write that it's a Ce' Luca. I'm definitely curious to see how the quality will be like but judging by this thread, the important thing is that it sounds like Ce' Luca's a great fit!

I purchased a suit from Gilt that was advertised as Corallo Rosso and received C'è Luca instead. Wow, where do I begin? First off, I am furious over the bait and switch and have contacted Gilt regarding this.

Corallo rosso, when it first came out, was unbelievable. The construction and the fit were on par with Isaia Base V. The wool was of a lesser softness and finess, which for me was ideal, as I am not a big timer and am a college student. Do I really need a Super 180?

I opted not to post fit pictures nor construction quality pictures, so just trust me at my word. I am by no means an expert on these things, but I rank my knowledge right around 60% of SF members.

Firstly, the fusing. There is some very subtle half-canvassing in the front, but it is not floating, it is not sturdy, and it is not going to prevent any bubbling. Please reference the old Kiton factory tour thread for a huge write up on this by I believe jeffreyd. This was about 2 years ago, so I don't quite recall the full details.

Secondly, the construction quality is just awful. There are poorly hidden seams, poorly made pick stitching, poorly layered fabric, and poorly attached lining. There is at least $125 of tailoring necessary to even come close to a decent fit.

Thirdly, the measurements. I ordered a 40/50L as I am 6'4". The BOC measurement was 30". If that is a long, then I am living in Asia and did not know it. There is also so much extra fabric in the pants that I could have fit three legs in the span on two.

And fourthly, the final review. The wool quality and construction quality of this garment rivaled that of Kenneth Cole. The one and only good thing that I can say is that the lining of the sleeves was interesting.

Overall, I would say that the quality is on par with H&M. I am genuinely surprised that Isaia opted to even produce such an inferior garment.

^ Luckily, with Gilt's new return policy, you can send it back for a full refund now!

I recently fell for the bait and switch and just received a c'e' luca sportcoat. I just wanted to see if anyone has any other input as to the quality. I like the cut, however, I'm not sure it is worth the $300 I spent. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

With the hell storm that I raised, I had a full refund, including the initial shipping charge from Gilt returned to my credit card. Smart move on their part, as had they not, I'd have filed a complaint with my credit card, kept the suit, and kept the money.

For $300, you can get a MUCH better deal on B&S. Heck, Spoo has some real Corallorosso items for sale if you're his size.

Just a note- Corallorosso is not made to the same standard as Isaia mainline (the base refers to the fit and silhouette, not overall quality). CR is very nice and full canvass, but is machine-made. All Isaia mainlines I've owned/seen have hand finishing such as buttonholes. Certain silhouettes also have the Neapolitan shirt-sleeve shoulder.

Also, the CR item I own fits more like a slightly slimmer Base S--shoulders are quite soft, as opposed to the Base V which is a stronger, more built up profile.
