yup just waiting to get paid so i can get a glen check suit.. If any suit is made in italy, it is Caruso made - and should be fully canvassed.

Where are you guys seeing rugby suits for about 400? Is there a special link like the RL sale someone posted earlier?

If someone doesn't plan to use their code, I'd appreciate getting it.

I have heard this many times. How is this possible? shog[1].gif I mean, 598 bucks for a fully canvassed suit made by Caruso, whos RLBL stuff goes for 1.5k and up retail, seems too good to be true. then again, I may be wrong...Does anyone know how these fit?

They are not fully canvassed.

Picked up the Darlton (now Marlow?) wingtips over the phone with the 40% + 15% off, and I didn't have any code. Just mention it to the SA and you should get it. Also, if you don't see your size online, try calling a store and getting it shipped to you. I needed a 12, and the only sizes online were 9 and 13, but the store I called had a pair in their inventory.

THIS.

Anyone looking for the code should just call and order. The SA will give you the 15% kicker.

This is what I thought. Are they at best half-canvassed (i.e. canvassed lapels?) What is the buttoning point like? I searched, not much comes up.

However, I do remember reading an article online talking about how Rugby suits were now made in Italy, and fully canvassed, with an appropriate increase in price? Am I misremembering things or does anyone else remember this? Either way, the sportcoats seem nice...and for 300 bucks, not a bad deal if they are half canvassed..just wish we could confirm this somehow.

Slim fitted. I own a Blue Pinstripe Rugby suit, before the Caruso suits came out though - Made in USA. It is slim so if you are unsure a size up might be better. I go to size and its a very tight fitting jacket with a silhouette look.

I have a Rugby SC made in Italy and my tailor said it was fused.
post #103 of 421
If the Rugby suits were fully canvassed by Caruso it is so bang on the buck.

Still waiting for a final verdict on the Rugby suits before I use a 3rd party shipping site.

Or is anyone able to help proxy a suit(Outside US)?

Thanks, OP.  Just picked up a pair of Sanderson suede wings I've been lusting after, among a few other sundries.  Didn't have a code, but called the customer help number and received one.  icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Rugby's Shaggy shetland sweater is a steal at $47 shipped as well. I own it, and have been quite pleased with it. They are, however, pretty slim.
