I am looking at a Stile Latino suit, but I have not heard much about the brand. Can someone comment on how good the quality is of the suits and how Stile is regarded against other high end suit companies.
That's and excellent price for a Stile Latino! I have two, you'll get the Attolini shape, excellent fabrics, however with less handwork details (still full canvas though) for less than half the price of an Attolini.
I wouldn't automatically look at a partially synthetic blend as a negative. I don't think high end all-weather wear is cheaper because of the synthetics used - they perform better for their intended use. I can see high-end manufactures using these types of fabric to achieve a "look"... wouldn't be surprised if this fabric is being used for a little more "athletic" cut or something in that it has a bit of stretch to it. The sizing seems off though 45R/46R at the top of the page and 38R/Euro 48R in the description seem to be at odds....
I've considered but have not purchased any Stile Latino suits primarily because of the very low rise that each has had. I think the most rise I've seen in one has been 9.5". Although I suppose for some that's actually a feature instead of a deal-breaker.
Has anyone heard of Stile Latino's Vintage line? I tried one on, but I could not tell for the life of me if the suit was full canvas construction. The cloth and stitching are superb, but I don't feel like spending the money on a suit that will "bubble" after one trip to the dry cleaners.
