Loro Piana - Page 3

Bump.....

 

I was at the Barney's Outlet Store today and came across a few Barneys house brand sportscoats made by Lora Piana in the $400-$500 range. Worth it?

Are you certain it wasn't simply Loro Piana fabric? As far as I know, LP contracts out the manufacturing for most (all?) of their sport coats. It's very unlikely they'd manufacture Barneys house brand sport coats.

THe sales lady said it was made by LP but the sportscoat said Made is Canada. It did say LP wool on the tag so the sales lady might have been wrong regarding the sportscoat "maker"

She was wrong. Saint Andrews makes the LP sport coats (they retail for $2500k+).

Then who makes Barneys sportscoats?

A lot of people. I have some made by Caruso.

Find the label and then look at the Label ID thread.

I hope you are right given that St Andrews has a great reputation for construction

 

 I have four LP SCs, three cashmere and one cotton, and I love the fabrics but have been somewhat unsure whether they are matched by the quality of the construction.

 

Like LP shirts, LP SCs lack the 'decorative' handwork typical of Neapolitan SCs/shirts by which such things are measured these days
