Definitely yes.. It's very hard to find these kind of clothing on sale in Switzerland and full price is $1600.. i am building a wardrobe for work (banking) and i need suits. I recently purchased a solid navy Zegna for $550, that's why i was thinking that Canali is expensive (taking into account fees, it makes prices closer) but i think most people here think that Zegna is better than Canali, correct ?
If you're up there how much of a hassle would it be to cross the border for corso umberto I 438 Oleggio,No and hitting the Zegna outlet. (Plug the address into goggle maps) $550 during the sales even at the current exchange rate isn't unheard of. You'll get to try things on. OTOH you might have to hit the outlet a few times to find something you like in your size. http://maps.google.it/maps?f=q&sourc...1,2.469177&z=9
I have seen year end prices where they are marked down to half price (Holt Renfrew). I have never seen Harry Rosen do this on Canali, they might do 30%. When Holt does it, it is usually just on remaining stock for the seasonal change. If they don't sell, they may reduce them further.
Now these other posts saying numbers like $700, $500, etc, I am guessing these are not recent stock.
