What part of it is dreadful? Solid charcoal. Wide Peak lapels. Button stance is a bit high.
I don't understand all the ragging on this suit in the thread. Stylistically, I like it much more than a ton of other suits I see on here.
I like the suit as well. I think it looks a lot better than the other suits with much thinner lapels. I think the suit fits alright (minus pants + long sleeves) on the OP as well. I don't see how the tags are faulty..The suit might be just half canvassed but like you said, stylistically it looks really nice.
And has GBR ever posted anything that doesn't contain the words dreadful, burn, shit, crap?
There's some cases here in Boston where Collezioni suits are better than the mainline Black Label. The Collezioni have better fabrics and are actually fully canvassed compared to half. But finding really nice Collezioni suits aren't easy either.
I'm guessing the suit is half canvassed, I haven't found a fused black label yet, but that's just me. I'm pretty sure the regular mainline black labels are now all half canvassed. And the higher lines are fully canvassed.
How can I know whether the suit is half-canvassed or fused?
It's not "dreadful" and if the maker was different the poster would likely be signing a different tune. SF groupthink at it's finest, there (rolls eyes).
I have a black-fleece suit that is fully canvassed. I can feel a separate layer under the fabric.
For this GA suit, I can't feel a separate layer, either in the chest or in the lapels, so I thought it might be a fused suit. However, I own another Brooks Brother 1818 Milano suit that was half-canvassed (mentioned on its website) and made in Italy but I can't feel a separate layer either. And I also own a fused Boss suit. The feeling for these three suits are pretty similar.
I guess I just cannot tell the difference between a fused suit and a half-canvassed suit.
Thanks. I think I would keep it even if it maybe a fused suit! Have a good thanksgiving!
