Are these half-decent suits? Mantoni, Manzoni, Rossellini, Comero, Enzo Tovare

Google searches have proven fruitless.

A local tailor sells a ton of these italian-named suits that I have never heard of. They boast 120's and 140's wool, mostly. The hand-written price tags claim that most of them have been reduced from $899-$999 down to $299-$399. I find this a little suspect. Do these brands actually sell some places for those higher prices? I'd like to get some affordable suits, and they look nice enough, I just don't want to find out after that I've been had.

When a suit boasts 140s wool and doesn't give the name of a well-known cloth merchant it's usually not a good thing. Are these suits made in Italy or just have Italian names? A name in itself means nothing.

Eh....guess I'll try some on and just buy one if I think it looks good. He's including tailoring in the price so I've got little to lose. Seems like a nice enough guy.

Jeff of Wizard of Aahs carried Enzo Tovare in the past and Mantoni at present and he seems to provide good feedback regarding these suits for the price. If the store include the tailoring price it is quite good as long the suit fits.
