    Since Daniel Cremieux signature suits are made by Isaia is the quality on the same level as an Isaia suit? How do the two compare? Thanks

    Are you sure that they are made by Isaia? I know they are made with Loro Piana cloth, but I am not sure about the maker.

    I just picked up a navy blue one in Super 160s. It is a lovely suit, IMO, but we will see how it holds up.

    Thats what some of the prior threads state. This is only the Signature line BTW

    They are made by Isaia, but they are not the same quality as Isaia mainline. Also, they are single vented.

    It wouldn't make sense if they were the same quality but half the price.

    I realize that. FWIW, the DCS I bought has lovely pick stitching, is luxuriously soft and lustrous, and is pretty great all the way around. I think, more than anything, time will tell if this was a good buy or not.

    I got it for 50% off retail, BTW.

    If it's made in Italy, it should be Isaia. I have only seen the recent ones, so if it's older, I don't know for sure that it's Isaia.

    Only some Dillards carry the signature suits. They are not worth it at full price. I had the opportunity to purchase some at half price, but I passed.

    I have also seen some Daniel Cremieux suits and sportcoats, made for Dillards, at Daffy's. Not sure if they are "Signature Line" though.

    ^ Oh you'd know, they say signature all over them.

    How can you know if the suit is really an Isaia? I just bought one of the Daniel Cremieux Signature suits for $104 at a Dillard's Clearance center. It is a 160's and says made in Italy. It's with the tailor now.

    Most of the standard stuff is Canadian. Bought a number of SC's and the quality is a bit all over. RN numbers say jack victor for most "non-signature" items. The fabric tends to be pretty reasonable especially if you get the ones made with Loro Piana. Dillard's 50% off sale prices typically allow you to get the SCs for about $100 and the suits for $300 (or less).
