I checked out the Barbera line at Saks in San Francisco yesterday. It seems that in the space of a year or so, they have gone through three different makers. Attolini was doing it, then a (as yet unidentified) maker, and now somebody else. Saks had coats and suits from all three different makers on the racks, at retail .. The early Attolini's were superbly cut, the later versions acceptably so, but not quite as nice. The maker they switched to after Attolini turned out an incredible suit, quality and cut are the best I have ever seen from Barbera (for those who bought the grey flannel suits from me on ebay, that's the model I'm talking about.) The newest version is not quite as nice, IMO. Construction and cut reminds me very much of Isaia, though I don't think they are Isaia. The shoulder is narrower and there is not as much waist suppression. Still a very nice suit, but I don't like them nearly as much as the previous version. So I guess what I'm saying is, if you are looking to buy Barbera, try on a variety of garments, at different locations even. There are very significant differences in cut between the makers, and one may fit you much better than another. All very fine suits though.
