Out of curiosity, what's the material composition? I remember seeing a solid charcoal Armani on myhabit that was a cashmere blend, but I missed out on it.
It's at least probably half canvassed, if not full. If you like the fit, keep it.

 

 

Pin Dot Suit

Mid-weight wool with an intricate pin dot pattern, 2-button front, 3 interior and front pockets; flat-front pant with side welt and back button-welt pockets, zip fly, tailor-ready hem

Fabric: 100% Virgin wool

Lining: 100% Cupro

If you don't want to keep it, let me know. I'll pay $100 more than you paid for it.

Put This On had an article up last week about the near impossibility of differentiating between half-canvassed and fused. Might be worth giving a read.

That's my experience also. Can you give me the link for this article? Thanks!

The labels look right to me. As others have stated, the jetted pockets and full cut trousers are also typical of Armani. I'd say it's legit.

Also I kinda like the suit. Especially at that price. With a bit of tailoring, it should look great.

I know this will garner a bunch of hate, but I actually kind of like some of the polyester and other synthetic blends that Armani uses. peepwall[1].gif

The original price is $2,195. Do you think it's normal for a GA suit?

Armani is like Houdini when it comes to fabrics smile.gif

I have a sportscoat that feels like a cashmere blend, and is simply 100% wool, magic...

Yes, that's what I was thinking. I was told that a GA suit is much more than the $2000.

It's possible it's from quite a few years ago.

Is there a way that I can find out in what year the suit was manufactured and in which factory? Thanks!

i have a giorgio armani suit , yea their pants is usually baggy (which i altered mine to be skinny) , what about the vent? Giorgio Armani jacket trademark is to be ventless. i think u got crazy bargain there , a GA suit for only 400$usd ...recently i also got some great bargain from local Giorgio Armani store itself but nothing compared to urs , i guess perhaps because u got it from 3rd party seller thus they offer more discount to get rid of the old stock...anyway what i got recently r 200$us for 750$ t-shirt n 100$+ for a 420$usd shirt... they have 60%-70% discounts on previous year fall winter collections n older ( which is like 3 seasons and older )

I think the lapels are too wide and the pants too long, but the suit itself looks luxurious.

Can I ask what makes it look luxurious? Thanks!
