If you are ever in Tuscany, Cantarelli has a factory store. Not much more than a room and really in the factory. I think their sample size is 52. I was there right after a trade show and you could have gotten plaid coats in every color under the sun in that size. Unfortunately, my 52 days are long over. I picked up 3 suits, two were summer suits with 3 buttons and patch pockets, and one sounds pretty close to what Johnny is describing. It was two years ago and I think the Euro was around 90 cents. Back then the 550 euro for the Loro Piana looked like a steal. Now you can do as well or better at BB. Great cut.--not the handwork of the StAndrews, but the cut works better for me than StAndrews for a lot less jack. If you are ever in NYC, check out the Caraceni suits and sport coats at BG.
