The balthazar is 1cm shorter in the body with a slightly narrower, bellied lapel and a two button closure. Its basically the Isaia Gregory and it existed well before I started. I made the tipo longer with a better lapel but it just didn't sell at full retail. I fought with every store about it for two years and finally gave in. The tenero has the same lapel as the tipo - its just 1 cm shorter, unlined with a completely soft shoulder. I think its the most versatile model we make.
Tenero is perfect.
