    I recently bought a Borrelli jacket. It's unconstructed, dark brown weave plaid. I really like this jacket because it's really soft, has nice cut and it fit really well on me. But I was surprised to see that it was a fused jacket. Being an unconstructed jacket, I was able to pull open between the layers of my jacket and discover the black layer under the lapel. Can i be wrong and assumed all canvass has that brown hair looking material or is it possible that a canvass can be a black looking material. That layer felt like wool to me by the way. Could it be possible that the Luxury Vintage line has different level too within it?? Many thanks.

    PIcs would help, but all the Borrelli garments we've ever seen are fully canvassed without fusing, so I'm guessing you may be mistaken.

    Borrelli Linosa and Sorrento jackets were uncanvassed, with light shirt fusing along the lapel down the fronts.

    Not that Borrelli makes its best models anymore. Or, even if there is a Borrelli left.

    So it sounds like the OP bought one of these that you described here, since he mentions it to be unconstructed.... we've never seen nor carried these before.

    btw it appears Borrelli is getting back into the game - at least somewhat.... Bergdorf is back carrying their shirts at least.

    Thank you for all your input. I noticed the Borrelli jacket tht I've got has much less hand work as well when compared to my other neapolitean jackets. Anyway, canvassed or not, this is easily my favourite jacket and I can see myself wearing it quite a bit because everything else is near perfect. :D It still has nice lepel roll though.

    Congrats! That's quite a find there.
