    I recently saw both of these brands.

    Outstanding.


    Folks; Pick either one...

    For the cut of the Borrelli, I agree...

    Then again, the Loro Piana had a Vicuna sportsjacket...

    The Borrelli had the classic Napoli cut..... which I love, we all love.

    I would pick Loro Piana of the two, though of course they are both great makers.

    For tailored sportcoats, Loro Piana's tend to have a very basic no-frills construction (nice fabric though.) So I'd go with Borrelli. For casual outerwear there is less of a difference.
