    Hi all,

    I have learned lots here but can find precious little information about Valentino Men's Suits.

    I'm on the fence about this Valentino suit:
    http://tailorandshod.com/brand/valentino/product/158700721-valentino-double-breasted-suit

    What does everyone think about the quality and value?

    The suit is "Made in Italy," has a white label "Valentino | Made in Italy", an inside tag indicating the Valentin SPA group, is made of 90% wool and 10% mohair, and to my assessment seems to be half canvassed or fused. It certainly does not seem to be part of the Valentino Tailoring line made by Isaia. All of this tells me that it seems to be a bit overpriced, even at the Gilt "discount."

    I wear Benjamin suits as my everyday suits, which are pretty good, and a few Brioni's thrown in.

    Thx
