Is this true for the older model of RLBL Anthony suit (100% wool instead of wool garbardine)? Or they meant 100% worsted wool?

Do RLPL's get more debrambling than RLBL or blue label?

Serious question: Is there a distinction between worsted wool and wool when it comes to suits and jackets?

Virtually all suit fabrics are worsted wool (lightweight, soft, silky). There are exceptions, of course, such as heavier and coarser wools (known as woolens) such as tweeds.

Of course, they cost that much more. But Lauren uses the old Italian debramblers that their suiting industry sold off a few years ago, not the newer ones you'll find in places like the U.S. or Asia.
