Suit brands for slim men: fully canvassed/half canvassed/fused - the definitive list - Page 6

post #76 of 81
I'm currently wearing my Z Zegna suit, and I can confirm that it's fused. Specifically, upon doing the pinch test above the chest pocket, the outer wool layer sticks to the canvas and does not come off without a bit of a peeling sound, like taking masking tape off of a surface. IIRC the "City" model is drop 7 and the "Drop 8" model is...I forget. I'm wearing a 48R City model.

Still love the colour and the cut though.

The Strellson Rick James line, which is fused, fits nice and slim. I have 2 of them. They run $600-$800+ CDN new.

Ozwald Boatend suit is canvassed, I bought a purple/eggplant wool/silk suit. Bought it from Selfridges when they were still buying Ozwald's line in 2008.

Now that you mentioned, I have always been wondering if there is any definite evidence to show that Dolce & Gabbana black label (white letters on black background) and white label (black letters on white background) has a difference? They seem to be the same price at the stores at my place..

Why did this thread die?

I keep reading online that Z Zegna is fused, not half canvassed.

 

I'm a slender guy myself and really need slim fitting clothing, like suits with high armholes and trousers with a high rise. I would really love to know the slim/trim fit cuts for all the top Italian designers (if they do offer slim, fashion forward cuts) and if they are fully or half canvassed or fused:

 

ATTOLINI, 

KITON, 

BRIONI, 

STEFANO RICCI, 

ISAIA, 

SARTORIA PARTENOPEA, 

FRANCESCO SMALTO, 

CIFONELLI, 

RAVAZZOLO, 

CORNELIANI, 

CANALI, 

CARUSO, 

PAL ZILERI, 

LARDINI, 

BOGLIOLI, 

MACO, 

BOGGI,
