The suits from STP arrived in blazing time - 2 days to Canada. I also got past customs
The black label Brant is actually very nice and full canvas. The cloth is noticably better than Brant mainline, supple hand. The cloth is lighter than I thought, more spring summer weight, drapes beautifully. The silhouette is trim, fit is very much like my Canali suits.
It is much, much higher quality than the Brant made in Canada. My tailor had never seen the black label and was immediately impressed (relative to the brand) - even more so when I told him what I paid for it.
For some reason the Dunhill was shipped to me even though I tried to cancel it. What junk! I had to take it to show my tailor. I wouldn't let him see the label, didn't tell him the make, and asked him to look at the jacket and tell me what he thought the suit retailed for. He told me he thought it was "Jack Victor" and retailed for "between $650-750". Funny, looking at it I thought the same thing. Not only is it fused, but the cloth felt like coverall fabric, the cut was boxy as anything, and the shoulder pads made me feel like I was trying out for the NFL.
The upshot of this: I called STP and they told me to return the Dunhill. I asked them if I exchanged it instead if I could still get the 20% off. So, I ended up exchanging it for 2 more suits. Is that against the rules?
Anyway, here they are:http://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/4...t-For-Men.htmlhttp://www.sierratradingpost.com/p/4...l-For-Men.html
