Hi everybody,

I'm thinking of getting my first Brooks Brothers suit, but needed your help. I found a golden fleece suit for $900 (regular price ($2400+) that is fully canvassed and made in Italy. Is it any good? Does Caruso still make it?

I have Isaia, HB Selection and RLBL. How would the BB suit compare?

Thanks guys!

I thought Caruso made the Black Fleece line, I didn't know they made any Golden Fleece too.

The Golden Fleece I have is USA made by Martin Greenfield and it's one of my favourites.

But who makes the 'made in Italy' suits? I read that Zegna made them a long time ago; don't know if that's still the case.

It's probably an older model if it's @900$ from $2400. For a long time they were indeed made by caruso. If it fits great, go for it. It's comparable to your RLBL
