Hi All, What do folks on the forum know about the 'Mabro Uomo' brand? Â A store here in DC (Everard's) is selling MTM made by this Italian company. Â Thye say that it is a fully-canvassed, but machine-stitched suit and it sells for about $1600 (my prices may be wrong, please correct me if you know better). Â Just wanted to know what factory in Italy actually makes Mabro and any opinions as to the quality of their garments. Here is a site with a few scant pics. Â The stuff I have seen looks a bit better than those photos. Â I also found a site in Italian on 'Italian Style for the American Male' in which I see a Mabro Uomo spokesman use the telltale term 'sfoderato' in reference to one of their suits - I am fairly sure that means 'fused'. Â The rest of the sentence is about how the American male may not be ready for more than this, so chauvinists, be warned. Anyhow, would really appreciate some insight on the maker if anyone knows about them. Also, are DC-area folks already familiar with James out in Tysons? I've only visited once, but was wondering if they ever had sales. Â They have quite a selection of shirtings - Fray, Attolini, etc. Â Seems like if they DO discount it would be worth visiting...
