I thought it was just the "Brooks Brothers Hand Tailored" line that was made by Isaia. Martin Greenfield made golden fleece until a few years ago, then I thought they had just used Southwick.

I've never heard of Lardini making GF, just 1818.

There are current BBGF suits made in Italy. I can't speak to the maker, but it can't be Greenfield or Southwick.

I doubt it would be Lardini though, I've never heard of them making suits to that standard of quality.

Lardini is like most suit manufacturers in that they can produce up to different standards.

Caruso for example makes fused suiting and half canvass suiting for Falconnable.

Lardini is similar in that they scale up or down on quality depending on the requested specs.

Sorry, pet peeve: suiting is the fabric. Suit is the garment.

Carry on....

I have no doubt as to the differnent standards, but Golden Fleece standards? I'd be very impressed haha. Not to argue though, you could very well be right. Thanks for the info. smile.gif

Pal Zileri

post #1960 of 2290
Since PZ is made by gruppo, it's safe to just assume it's gruppo forall?

And can any attest to the levels of gruppo for tailoring? Are they just the Italian mass tailoring house? Kinda like a HF or Joseph abboud of Italy?

i don't have many experience of PZ, especially Forall self brand

 

 

here is some information from net:(according to it,can i say PZ mainline quality is a little higher than Forall brand?)

 

 

The Forall Confezioni Company was established in 1970 in Quinto Vicenza (a small town near Vicenza in the south-east of Italy) by a group of businessmen with extensive experience in the textile and sewing sector. 

 

By 1980 the companyreached the turning point in its development. Although the Forall company was known all over Italy for its quality and creative approach to their collections at the end of the 1970s it was still a relatively small company with the turnover of just over10 bln lire. However the partners decided that it was the time to make another step forward and develop a label which would distinguish the company. That was the birth of the Pal Zileri label that is the not just the label of a designer, but of the numerous companies managed by Gianfranco Bardiza, the co-founder and the chairman of the company.

 

However, the peak of export was reached in the 90s. Although, it was a period of decline at the market of Italian menswear, the Forall company managed to continue its growth due to permanent penetration to the world market and changes made in the range of clothes. By 2000, the turnover of the company reached 200 bln lire of which half was earned abroad: in Europe, America and Asia. Moreover, the range of the apparel was expanded significantly. Although the heart of the production was still the quality of the sleeve making according to the measures by the “abito private” service.less informal lines, such as Pal Zileri Sport, accessories (shoes, belts, pens, umbrellas and bags) were developed to complement the suit manufacturing.

Searched through the past year, but can't confirm this tag with anything. Anyone seen this before?

If it is, it doesn't match this label which I've seen on several Zanella jackets on the bay/google:
