Hello All,

 

I was looking at the Nordstrom anniversary sale and found two suits that I felt looked good on me (and that I felt would go well with a pair of dark brown AE Park Avenue shoes that I just picked up).

 

Ive looked on the forums and I understand that both brands are considered comparable. The rep swears that both are half canvassed, but I cant be sure.

 

The Peter Millar is normally $700 but is on sale for $450. I believe it is called "Windowpane" and is a trim fit. Surprisingly the description says that it is fully canvassed.

The Hugo Boss is "normally" $900 but is on sale for $600. It is called Jefford/Lennon (though the tag said Jefford/Lenon). The description says nothing about whether it is half canvassed or not.

What is throwing me for a loop is that I cannot find the Hugo Boss suit anywhere else on the internet. There is an expired hit from ebay (in India), and the only legitimate link seems to be the Hugo Boss UK site : http://store-uk.hugoboss.com/regular-fit-new-wool-suit-%27jefford-lenon%27/hbeu50262354.html . Other than that I cannot find it on their US site, which makes me wonder if it is something that is produced just for sales and outlets.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Both about whether or not the jackets are half canvasses/fully canvassed/fused and about whether the Boss suit is just for sales.
