I can't speak for the outlet suits, but the house label suits at the standard stores have been made by Caruso for at least a year and are fully canvassed and quite nice.

Sorry for reviving such an old thread. But I ran into Barneys Suit at Barney's Warehouse, with Zegna Shang Cloth.

https://www.barneyswarehouse.com/pr...wool-silk-two-button-sportcoat-505886032.html

  • Ermenegildo Zegna Trofeo® Australian-wool fabric from Italy.
  • Notch lapels with stitched buttonhole. Pick-stitching.
  • Angled welt chest pocket. Flap front pockets. Tailor-ready shoulders and sleeves.
  • Fully lined. Locker loop and three pockets at interior.
  • 95% wool, 5% silk. Lining: 100% cupro.
  • Made in Italy.

Like most, I suck at the pinch test. My best guess is that it's half canvased. But I would love your advice on whether $450 after all discounts is a good price for the above? The fabric and fit both feel fantastic to me, and relative to Spier and Mackay I do think the construction is a bit more solid. But I am no expert.

Thanks!
