The brand has strong sales in Europe and it's growing fast. And I have to say, it's largely because of the excellent quality for this price point. I'm currently wearing one of their OTR suits from their summer collection, not even from their best Suit-Up line. It's half-canvassed, has a natural shoulder, nice fit (Drop 7), working sleeve buttons and the cloth is a Super 120 wool with Glen Urquhart Check in light blue from the italian manufacturer Vitale Barberis Canonico. Lining is Bemberg in a matching royal blue. Kind of a dandy suit, fashionable but with substance, worn with dark brown double monks from the Loake 1880 series, my interpretation of Casual Friday. And this suit came at a price of (converted) around 430$ retail. Yes, I'm wearing RLBL and Raffaele Caruso suits, too. And they are slightly better in every respect, one can not deny that. But they are substantially more expensive, too.
