    I was recently looking at a Barbera suit I have, and it really looks like it was made by Attolini. While it was very fine, it seemed to be just a step below Attolini's. I have never actually seen a Sartorio, so it could be on par with that. In any event, does anyone know if my eye picked up something here, or is it that I have been trying to stay up since midnight last night to beat jet lag on my flight to London later today.

    My understanding is that the Barbera Collezione Sartoriale suits are now made in a facility that is jointly owned by Barbera and Attolini; the facility may also make the Sartorio line, thougth of this I am not certain. Somebody (theworldsfinest?) on e-bay was selling some jackets, of a brand name I don't recall, that were also from this facility.

    Something like "Eligo"? Was that it?

    Yes, Eligo. Theworldsfinest (aka Vintageusa) still has an Eligo jacket for sale on their web site. Their assertion is that Eligo is made in the same facility, which they is actually owned by one of the Attolini brothers who left the Attolini business.

    Has anyone seen any Eligo garments in person? If so, how do they look?

    Bumped into some Eligo Napoli stuff today, very very high quality work with great fabrics with a wonderful Neapolitan cut. May pick some stuff up here to sell on to members as none of it is in my size.

    I've only seen suits and sportcoats at the moment. Similar in quality to Sartorio. RRP for a sportcoat €1200.

    I thought Sartorio was made by Kiton and that Stile Latino was made by Attolini...... :puzzled:
