Hi guys, first time posting here so please be nice :)
I am buying a causal blazer and its fabric is from Vitale Barberis Canonico, with 55% Linen 25% Silk 20% Cotton. I just want to know if this fabrics is any good since I cannot find much about it online.

It’s pretty decent fabric. It’s not super high end but solid nonetheless. Please post pics when you get it. Good luck.

VBC produces a very wide range of fabrics. Really impossible to say much about your fabric. I would base your decision more on the fit and styling of the jacket rather than on trying to look up the fabric in VBC's books.

SuitSupply uses them. Their mixed blend quality is equally great for the price, their 100% wool option is also an excellent choice.

Thank you everyone. It is from M.J. Bale. Just made an order online (still in COVID lockdown so can't physically go to the store to try it on). RRP was $699 (AUD) but with multiple discounts (including buying 2 other clothing items for a further 30% off), I got the price of the blazer down to $210 AUD. Can't wait for it to arrive!!
