I actually keep it around and even still wear it occasionally because it fits me very, very well.
I certainly wouldn't buy another one, but you could do a lot worse for the price. It's certainly in no way equal to a Corneliani or really any of the mid-grade full-canvas suits. I'd compare it to a mid or upper-grade JAB suit, except that I like the cut a good deal more--no huge shoulders or anything.

Anyway: I would really like to see Jeff send one of his Baroni's to a reputable member here for dissection and evaluation. I'm interested to see where it stands against other suits that are more styleforum accepted (ie. Hickey Freeman mainline, BB 1818, etc...).
Jeff, Please offer up one of your suits for evaluation. I think you'd get some good business from the members and lurkers here if your suit gets a satisfactory review.
How do these Baronis compare "now" ?
