Somebody comment on Etro and Byblos, though....


Sorry just came across this thread today and am loving it!  Need to work my way through the remaining pages but just wanted to make a quick comment on Etro, love how they use prints/color in their suits both inside and out.   Also I have found on many of their suits they are lined in silk, not synthetic material.  Now you can debate the practicality of that as far as wear but you cannot deny the sheer lux of it, super fab in my opinion.

Good point on the above, especially the silk lining (the only other brand that consistently uses a silk lining is Pal Zileri Sartoriale Blue Label).

Construction wise, Etro falls in the mid-range (half canvas, made by Boglioli).

Really enjoyable. A lot of names that I wouldn't have known two years ago, many now in my closet.
