Yes, exactly. These might not look right as sport coats. But you could order them all and see for yourself; they only charge $6 for return shipping.

Thanks. Other than them looking like orphaned suit jackets, do you think the $450 ones match the quality of $800 ones? That's what I'm confused about, since they're all "caruso." Also, would these be 3-roll-2 when unbuttoned?

Should be similar or same quality. We haven't seen anything less than fully canvassed from Caruso - and we have/had LOTS of Caruso (hundreds of suits).

Thanks. Better check out your collection! Based on experience, do you think these are 3-roll-2.5 or 3-r-2? Also helpful if you know whether Caruso does/not typically make true 3-buttons.

We've seen true 3, many 3 roll 2.5 and some 3 roll 2 also (least common) - but 2 buttons and 1-buttons as well.

I can't find much final product fit pics of Caruso suits. I'd appreciate if someone could link or upload them. Thanks!

I think that Caruso jackets are tailored to size with a notch towards a "slimmish" fit. The measurements of the jacket are posted here and anyone who wear size L or 42 will find them just fine:
