I don't mind how A Harris displays the jacket, even though he uses the same display for other items (but I'd make the tie solid navy and not black).
LOL, it's amazing, a solid black black textured tie and very light blue shirt looks at least ok with just about EVERY tailored jacket known to man. That's why I've left it on the mannequin. You can wear the jacket you describe with just about anything, though I'd like it best with grey flannels in winter or medium grey worsted trousers in summer, with a blue shirt and bottle green tie.
That's the first time I've heard that the "collezione" line of Luciano Barbera is made by Attolini. Interesting.
Was made, Attolini was the first maker they used after they moved on from Saint Andrew's. The maker after Attolini is the one that fascinates me. The cut is/was incredible. Interestingly, I have heard from a couple of good sources that those particular jackets were made by Caraceni, most recently from Jim Hogan at Wilkes Bashford. Now that doesn't make sense in that I have never heard of Caraceni being involved with or owning a RTW factory, but it makes perfect sense in that the cut is textbook Caraceni... Obviously there is some missing information, which I will ferret out sooner or later
One possibility, it was suggested to me by a very knowledgeable gentleman that these jackets may be entry level Campagna, who bought the rights to use the Caraceni name from one of the family members. Perhaps that is the connection, but a mystery it remains. I have not yet identified the current maker of the Collezioni Sartoriale line. It is still a very nice garment, though a slight notch down in quality from previous iterations. The coats now have a long, lean silhouette with a narrower shoulder than I've ever seen on a Barbera before. These current coats don't fit me nearly as well
