Hi guys, could anybody shed some light on the world of Chinese Faux-Italiano brands? My current understanding is that many of them come from the same factory, just with different names (sometimes more than one per suit) tacked on.
Browsing past threads, I've gathered that
Joseph Bach=Abito Sartoriale=Luciano Bardelli=Mattazari Uomo=Marco Valentino
Can anybody confirm this relation?
I'm asking because I recently purchased a "Luciano Bardelli" blazer for $340 thinking it was essentially the same as a "Marco Valentino" which based on some of the feedback on these boards, is considered to be a decent quality, entry-level make. It's navy and 100% wool with a half Canvass, fits me quite well and appears to be of good quality. Should I keep it as sort of a "beginner's blazer" or should I attempt to return it tomorrow.
I ended up buying it because I couldn't really find a better deal in NYC (probably doin' it wrong; my inexperience is showing), and the next best thing I came across was a Versace sport coat for $346@ Saks, and that thing was fused and 65% polyester.
(Also, it says that the fabric is by Marzotto)
