I read a post earlier (but cant find it now) about Marc Jacobs's mainline suits being full canvassed - would all suits in the collection (not counting marc by mj ofcourse) be fully canvassed or are there different lines like gucci where some are canvassed and some fused?

I've seen some of them marked inside with a big "54" and then "Marc Jacobs - Made in Italy" - what does the 54 mean?

It is a fashion suit.
You are overpaying wether it is canvassed or fused.

I wouldent even consider it full price ofcourse, but a store here is going out of business and selling their suits at 80% off. It would put it at about $300-$400 which could be a decent pickup! =)

54 is the euro size, usually corresponding to a US 42 or 44.

Yes, you're right , my size had a "50" inside. I didnt even think about it being a size-tag since it was placed where the manufacturer patch usually is
