Cabazon outlet notes (baldesarini, ae, etc) - Page 2

post #16 of 24
I'd put it on par with Luciano Barbera.
A fair comparison, except Baldessarini doesn't have handstitched buttonholes. They are still made by Ma.Co (R. Caruso) I think. Barbera's cut is far superior though.

Didn't know about the buttonholes, thanks. koji

can't have too many quality garments, even if you can't wear them at all the occasions one would like.
I think this should be the official Style Forum motto.  Or the motto of the self-help group spawned by the Forum.

a harris, yes baldessarini suits are still made by caruso - i spoke with some of the hugo boss reps (canada) two weeks ago and they confirmed this for me

One other note, not that most people here will shop there, but the staff at the Armani outlet in Cabazon were abysmal. Some guy was trying on a jacket and it looked like he was swimming in it, he was probably a 38R and they had him trying on a 44R or something and the sales person said "most people can't buy off the rack stuff, you'll need to have it altered" .....

For what it's worth, one of the sales staff at Zegna (Cabazon) lamented the fact that they were receiving fewer and fewer high-end Napoli or Trofeo pieces. She was fairly honest in pointing out that the Gritti line was fused, but one of the new black 2-buttons suits had pick-stitched lapels or something. and most of the suits at the Armani outlet seemed to be their lower-tier Mani's. Off 5th seemed to have the best quality-price ratio: charcoal Canali --> $499

They also had some Collezioni, and regular line stuff at the Armani store, but I wouldn't say they had alot of high end stuff. I think the best price/value was the Baldessarini personally, because Boss was blowing that stuff out the door, $499, less 20%, less 10%? wow.

I went to Cabazon today to check out the Columbus Day 1) Zegna's outlet is selling some nice main line suits for about $525 after the $75 coupon you can get from the outlet office.
Was this coupon only for Columbus day? I think I remember you mentioning a VIP coupon before. Is this what you were refering to?

If you go to www.premiumoutlets.com you can join their VIP shoppers club and get a coupon book. Many of the coupons are useless but some are nice, 10-20% off diff things.
