    Very nice! I also have a few suits from Caruso but never considered MTM by them, some of their cuts already fit me quite well off the rack. I like the fabric of this one, you know what weight it is?

    310g. I think that's 11oz.

    NOBD,

    What do they start at for MTM? Not a big fan of the button fly though.

    These look lovely. Though the pick stitched front darts on the cotton suit crack me up!

    which line of Caruso are you guys talking about? I tried EU48, definitely fits larger than RLBL 38. Pants might fit slimmer, but definitely not jacket.

    those are sick sick suits.
    I am a huge RC fan, but I not come across anything like these.
    Some of my Adriano and Sons suits are similar, but these are works of art.
    Great pics too!

    Hey,

    Are you going to keep ignoring mine (and other's) PMS or can you contact me back ASAP?

    Hard to say: depends on the fabric and the details. They're 10-15% more expensive than OTR. I guess they start around 1200 euros.

    Okay, I like the workmanship of these suits, but I'm curious to know what flexibility, if any, the customer has when ordering? The reason I ask is because there are details on your garments that one doesn't customarily see on ordinary MTM suits - & at a reasonable initial price point. Oxxford and Isaia are the only two m2m companies that offer incredible custom flexibility.

    Which details do you mean? And what kind of flexibility?

    NOBD - outstanding stuff. I have a few coats from Caruso and have been very pleased. You can't beat the quality at the price point.

    Very nice glen plaid suit. I'm surprised they're only 1,200 euros for MTM. I wonder where you can get Caruso MTM or OTR in the US.

    Thank you. 1,200 is more or less (depending on the details) the 'bottom price' for MTM, I think.

    Oh my.

    Awesome suit, C.

    I'm just imagining it paired w/ that brown Kiton tie and some snuff suede Tetburys [​IMG]

    Thanks, N. Hehe. Definitely the tie, but the polo brown Belgraves are first in line...

    MTM at Sid's is $1500 to $1800 depending on fabric / options.
