    So, let me offer a second opinion. I have what I believe is the same suit in a tan / light grey. Also bought from Yoox recently:

    http://www.yoox.com/ca/49127531AL/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80&cod10=49127531AL&sizeId=

    It's not the "Cants" brand but it is "Cantarelli washed" which seems to do with the treatment of the fabric. It's half canvassed, but otherwise I think it's a pretty nice suit and has nice workmanship on par with, say, a half-canvassed Boglioli (especially around the pants), but is obviously a step below Caruso, and as noted above is definitely more towards the casual end of the spectrum in terms of fit (not unlike a lot of Boglioli, Tagliatore, Lardini, and the many other Italian makers we're probably all familiar with).

    I will say that there is something squarish about the shape of the jacket which may not suit certain builds - the shoulders while very soft and unpadded seem to be cut a little wider especially when compared to what is a pretty short length on the jacket. I ended up sizing down and it looks great, but I'm going to have to spend some money taking out the seat of the smaller pants - I guess that's the trade off.

    Finally, I'll also note that the brand "shirts & ties" sell the exact same suit under their brand name - same tags including the one that goes into detail about the fabric treatment.

    http://www.yoox.com/ca/49124992LH/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80&cod10=49124992LH&sizeId=

    "shirts & ties" seems to be a men's store or chain of stores in Italy.

    Doesn't sound like the same suit to me. The one I bought and will be returning ASAP is unlined, unconstructed, and totally fused (I can feel the slippery fusing in the lapels). The stitching is awful, and the cut is horrible (shoulder width fine, but boxy through the waist and hips, and collar doesn't remotely lay right). Fabric is okay. I might consider buying the suit for 75 bucks just to get the pants, but like I said te stitching sucks.

    Awesome name, huh? Those sportcoats have keyhole buttonholes on the lapel, as did the POS that I received. That does not bode well for what the sportcoats will turn out to be, though they look nice on the mannequin.

    Will Yoox make one more cut to 80%? If so, when will that happen?

    Can you post a link to the listing for the suit you returned? I'm curious to see how it looks on the screen.

    If history repeats itself then yoox will drop to 80%, but there's rarely anything decent left by that point. But there will be another round of unpublicized drops before they officially hit the 80% mark. Check your dreambox daily starting in a couple of weeks.

    I've read in other threads that Cantarelli can be a mixed bag. Avoid unless you know for sure it's a mainline canvassed.

    I ordered two Cantarelli's recently and sent them both back, one was the charcoal suit linked above. Quality appeared to be OK, cut was weird though. 38R was really short and had huge armholes, bought two different models and both had the same large armholes.

    I got this L.B.M 1911 suit in a 38 US/48 EU: http://www.yoox.com/us/49127544JA/item?dept=#sts=dreambox80. Turns out I should've gotten the 40, which has since sold out. Before I return, anybody interested in it for $230 in the U.S.? (cost + my tax + shipping + cc fees?). Great suit and fabric, non-functional cuffs (unusual for this brand), just too short for me.
