I've never seen it with Corneliani, but have seen it quite a bit on their cheaper imported pants and jackets.
I have a baby blue oxford cloth suit I got this way.
^^^ +1. A couple of weeks ago, I saw a Polo by Ralph Lauren Blue Label seersucker suit being advertised on eBay for something like $10. I asked the seller (1) to confirm that it was, in fact, Blue Label because sometimes sellers will say something is "POLO RALPH LAUREN" when it's really "LAUREN RALPH LAUREN" or "POLO UNIVERSITY CLUB" and (2) where it was made. It turned out the jacket was made in HK or Macau and the pants were made in Sri Lanka. Exact same material, but apparently sold as separates.
