This fabric is so thin that it actually shines through. The photographer held a red bag behind the jacket to illustrate this. The reddish shine of the fabric is actually that red bag. Because there is no inner lining it is ideal for summer use.
Zegna's Feather model is built the same way.  With a spring fabric, I had a suit made for less than US$2000.

Are you comparing Zegna to Caraceni

I keep all my Zegnas in a separate closet from all my Caracenis, using the former only for rugby and other bloodsports, such as chess.

Could anyone clarify what relationship the current Caraceni tailoring firm has to the original firm?  Am I correct that the original firm made garments for Mr. Gianni Agnelli?  If so, was that firm not purchased by Gianni Campagna?  If I'm also correct in this regard, how does the current Caraceni firm compare with the original firm in terms of quality of workmanship and house style?  Thank you.
The 'original' Caraceni was Domenico Caraceni who was worldfamous back in the day Now there are 3 Caraceni's in Milan and one in Rome. As i've understood (correct me if i'm wrong) they're all related to Domenico. The 'best' Caraceni at the moment is A. Caraceni, which is also the one Richie Rich has visited. And yes, Gianni Agnelli did get his suits from that source (among many others).

Bespoke tailors make their suit to your wishes. Not their own. They create a pattern from your measurements, they don't adjust existing patterns. Nor do they create a different silhouette, they create a silhouette to your wishes. That's what bespoke is all about. A. Caraceni is still regarded as the one of the best Italian tailors. At least better than Kiton.

Sorry, my vote goes to the Roman ateliers of Tommy and Giulio... I much prefer the silhouette of the original Roman branch of the family .
