Is this comparable to RLBL quality?

That model looks freaking anorexic. You should post this in the Quick Questions/Quick Answers thread. Did you even fucking bother talking to one of the CS reps they have on chat? It's supposed to be half-canvassed constructed "entirely in Italy".

Yes, but is that GOOD?

No it's not comparable in quality.

It's half canvassed.

Also, RLBL uses Holland and sherry fabrics.

Lapels are too skinny for my taste and I am not a fan of single vent jackets

I think you need to do your own research instead of asking people to do it for you because you're too lazy to.

 

A lot of these guys are knowledgeable, but it doesn't mean they're your errand boys. Don't ask a question that you can find answers to and expect them to serve the answer to you on a platter.

 

 

On another note, othertravel, where did you gather they use H&S? I have a couple. Doesn't indicate it anywhere. I tried searching for any posts about it too, but came up with nothing. Please enlighten me - this is very interesting.

What makes you think the suit is half canvassed? Horrible looking suit though

Probably pick these up for about $150 in the outlet store soon - a size Zero would struggle to fit into this.

Pinch test.

Oh, then that is a suit. I wasn't sure at first, seeing as how it more closely resembles an overly short blue jacket whose lapels have been shrunk down to practically nothing by an evil wizard, worn with a pair of blue tights.

Still, it's a nice example of concentration camp chic. Heroin chic is so yesterday.

BTW, I think the model's complexion is slightly more tan than the ideal. It looks like he was almost certainly exposed to sunlight for at least a few moments, probably not more than 5 years ago.

(Lest I be criticized for ignoring the OP's fundamental question, no, there is no real reason for assuming the suit in question is of RLBL quality. Which isn't really that big a drawback, given that the suit will be laughably out-of-fashion long before any shortcoming in construction would be likely to become an issue.)

I'll echo the sentiments of the other posters.  Horribly thin lapels, way too narrow and short a cut, and single vented.  Certainly not worth the price for these reasons.  You can do much much better for $1200.

the lapels would look hilarious on any man of normal stature and size.  not a fan of the stitching on the lapel/pockets...im sure there's a correct term for this.  I don't think there's a problem with single vented suits though..seems like a preference. - should be noted I only own double vented suits though
