Are Gucci suits canvassed?

Are gucci's suits canvassed or fused?
I found a couple of suits from the 2005 collection, really nice peak-lapel 2 button pinstriped models, at a discount store here in sweden. $500 each and they fit really well on me. I tried doing the pinch test and it felt like they were canvassed to me, if they are, who makes them for gucci? Do they do them in their own factories?

Aren't they made by either Zegna or Belvest? And if so, they are most likely fully canvassed.

I think in 2005 they are likely made by Zegna. Wasn't it Prada that was made by Belvest, in the past anyways?

In 2005, the canvassed ones were made by Zegna. They also had a second line that was fused and about 2/3 the price of the real stuff.

Didn't know that Gucci made a 2nd line (notwithstanding Gucci Jeans on casual front)? What is it called pls?

I still own 2 Gucci suits and have owned 2 others in past. All fully canvassed. All made by Zegna (as was Gianni Versace Couture).

I think their fabrics are pretty but never could tell whether they were canvassed. So expensive too. I guess about 2 years ago I came to that fork in the road between designer suits and stuff like Isaia and never turned back.

No different markings from what I remember, just a lower price and inferior construction.

Gucci has a cruise line but it's an implied line not like Prada and Prada Sport.
