Paul Stuart Suit?? Worth the Bang?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
How are the quality and who makes the suit now days? I was really surprised their top of the line suit were made in Canada.

Aren't some Paul Stuart suits made by Saint Andrews in Italy? Or am I mistaken?

I saw one that was MSRP @ 1400 that's OTR (S130, noting really special), and then the SA took me to the other suit side and shown me one that's at $1900 and it was made in Canada. I was so surprised by such, left the store without looking further.

I'm not sure of the retail of mine but I'm pretty sure it's over 2000. The top of the line is called Stuart's Choice. If it doesn't say that it's their mainline.

I think the Canadian ones are made by Samulson or so it seemed from the jackets that showed up in the B&S section. Samulson makes a fine suit and IMO is the best that this country has to offer save for bespoke but I wouldn't pay that kind of money for them. STP has some for $550 or close I do believe.

The Italians are St. Andrews, and the Canadians are Samuelsohn. That's a lot of money for a Samuelsohn (which is a great garment but available for much less), but if you like the supposedly exclusive fabric and "design", have at it.

I love Stuart shirts, but I do not know much about the suits.

How are they cut? Slim?

I thought the italian Stuart's Choice stuff (or at least some of it) was Isaia.

i also believed this to be true. i do know that i got that information about 2 years ago, so maybe it has changed?

I personally have a problem spending $2000 on an ORT that's made in Canada, very rarely do i associate good clothing articles from Canada...plus the fabric isn't even all that excellent. I mean Samuleson might be great, but then at that kind of price, you have a lot of options (You can do much better brands ORT, or Semi-luxury MTM, or even Bespoke, why Canadian ORT?)

cant argue with you there. as i say, its been a long time since i looked at their suits. at the time, the made in canada stuff was at a price point of around $1200 (or something like that) and the made in italy stuff was at around $2400 - this was before the phineas line came out. i have no idea what kind of price points they have for their lines now.

$1200 seemed reasonable enough for the samuelsohn make at the time...but not at $2000. though truth be told, i wouldn't be spending $2000 OTR period, regardless of where it was made.

Isaia used to make for PS, I'm pretty sure they no longer do so.
