Thanks. Based on your lead, I poked around some more and that seems to be the sort-of-slightly-informed consensus view. I am not sure whether anyone who initially made the claim actually knew or whether the statement was just an inference based on snippets of information and the fact that Ciccarelli is the only factory/CMT shop in Liong Island City. I am not suggesting it is wrong - in fact, I think it is likely correct - but I wonder if anyone has more solid information. I have only seen a Thom Browne suit in person once or twice and that was on a person, not in a shop, so I couldn't inspect it for quality. I am not sure the quality even matters as the overall impression is that the wearer is wearing a Thom Browne suit - any other impression being conveyed, even the fit, was overwhelmed by the "designerness" and seemed besides the point. Nonetheless, I can at least tell my friend that Cicarelli is capable of making a good machine made suit and that Thom Browne likely contracts for the high end of their capability.
