However, I've been puzzled the last couple of years though by slacks and ties I've seen -- the pants on EBay and the ties at a specialty men's clothier -- that have the Bruno Piatelli name, but the label is entirely different from the Bruno Piatelli garments I have (elegant script signature of "Bruno Piattelli" followed by the word "Roma" as I recall.
The label was "Piattelli" in script with "Barneys New York" in block letters below, so I'm not sure it's the same maker you're thinking of. Â You can check the wares out at the Barney's Outlet at Leesburg Corner Center.
How much was the Piatelli suit from the Barney's Outlet, if I may ask?
It was $499 -- a good value in my book for a fully canvassed suit. Â I don't know enough about suits to know how it compares with Canali, which is an irrelevant issue anyways because I found no Canalis in my size at the Off Fifth.
