Put one on—you’ll feel the difference immediately.


 

So by definition if it is fused or canvassed it is not an "unconstructed" jacket.

Most unconstructed jackets will still have fusible along the edge of the lapels, otherwise it'd drape completely lifelessly. 

 

People get wrapped up about fused vs. canvassed too much. It's one parameter of quality, not an end all.

Ok, so a neapolitan jacket with no shoulder padding and only a light full canvas is structured?

I'd still call it structured. Lightly structured, though. 

 

I realize it's kind of a grey area. When I think unstructured, however, I think of the houses I mentioned before--Boglioli K, Canali Kei, LBM1911, etc.
