I can’t find much info about them online (including here). Most of the information is a decade old that I can find.
What I can find:
- has a high quality line, made from good materials in a respectable manner out of Italy.
- was a manufacturer for some fashion brands such as Prada and Hermes.
- the Parisian Gentleman noted that you won’t find anything fused from Belvest, but some say their silver line/label is half canvased? Others say their silver line/label can be fully canvassed.
- they have very little online or major retail presence. Not sure where one would even find their products to purchase.
- their website displaying recent collections (1) the collections seem small, and (2) the collection seem more fashion forward than traditional professional/office attire.


thanks for the information

I have two suits and three jackets from Belvest, the oldest of which
are 10+ years old. They are fully canvassed and very well made.
Because they manufacture "private label" for many retailers, styles
vary. Mine are uniformly "neapolitan". Sartoriale discounters usually have
a wide selection:

Forum sponsor LuxGentleman carries a big collection of Belvest items. I have a few suits and agree with comrade's assessment. Just look for the black labels which are mainline v grey/silver labels which are half canvas diffusion line. The sponsors are usually good about pointing it out but sometimes miss it.

how does the silver line compare to other half canvas offerings (Charles Tyrwhitt, Spier McKay?)

also, sometimes the silver label is listed as fully canvassed and sometimes half canvassed. I haveread That silver line can be both? Luxgentleman has some silver line as half canvas and some as full.
