Prefer the blue stripe. Lapels look better proportioned as opposed to the constricted look in the gray. Also, the blue trousers better fill out the space at the bottom of the jacket so it looks to a more coherent suit.

+1. Not to knock the Steed suit, but the Caraceni has an extra bit of magic.

Fwiw, I believe the suit from di Montezemolo a few posts ago is also by Caraceni.
post #2449 of 3013
I like both, but prefer the Caraceni. Would like to see a smidge more drape on it, though.

These recent A.Caraceni suits have a more trim look compared to the past.

 

Montezemolo once was a customer of Tommy & Giulio Caraceni in Rome.

Now is a customer of Rubinacci.

Strange.

Generally the Steed double breasteds are not so shut on shirt and ties.

I like very much Steed,but in this case i prefer the Caraceni suit.

Even because the cut is not much "Caracenesque",but more clean and sharp.

I read somewhere that he sports Campagna - lol...
If I had houses both at Capri and Cortina d'Ampezzo I would wear suits from multiple makers, why not

Look at this DB Steed suit:

Is not so shut as in the Lordsuperb picture,but have a good breath on ties and shirt.

This reminds me of an earlier example of a comparison between an A&S expat, Steven Hitchcock (Flannel DB) and a leading Italian house (albeit not Milanese) Rubinacci, Naples (Cashmere DB)

Is it just me, or is there some weird rippling on that grey Steed DB under his left arm? But regardless of that little tidbit, I still prefer the navy Caraceni.

post #2456 of 3013
Caraceni by a mile over Steed. Would love to try Caraceni at some point in my life. At least in pictures, Steed jackets seem so flat or two dimensional (not sure of a better way to describe this).

Steed suits for voxsartoria are very well cut,especially double breasted.

Is evident that,unfortunately,the DB for Lordsuperb is not one of Steed best works.

That's not me and as for the two makers I think they both hit a home run. The only thing I would change about the steed DB is to lower the buttoning point. For the Caraceni I would've asked the suit to have a but more drape built into the chest.

I like steeds higher button stance. I think its what gives that clasically English and a bit more rigid look. Just what the double breasted should be.
