Canterelli, what can you tell me about them?

So, I am considering a canterelli suit or two.
As most of you know, I am a Caruso fan.
Will I be disappointed by Canterelli?
What are they on par with?
I am considering the Yoox, Canterelli labeled product.
What say Ye about Canterelli? (I know they make for loads of other labels, as does my beloved Caruso).

I have a couple of Cantarelli / RLPL SCs, strong/padded shoulders, very slightly tapered waist, decent construction, ho-hum drape and materials. They are at par with RL Blue Label by Corneliani in terms of material and quality, which a different cut, IMO.
Antirabbit, they are not up to your standards, I am pretty certain of that.

Regards.

I bought a Cantarelli sportcoat from Yoox. It arrived with working buttonholes
and conspicuous, tacky pickstitching along every exterior seam
. Maybe my sample was an exception, but it made me think Cantarelli is too flashy for my tastes.

But hey, Yoox has a great return policy. Can't hurt to check one out and see if you have better luck.

Shikar, my brother....I trust you.

Damn, I needs a blue suit.

They make Faconnable sportcoats, yes? If so I have a recent model with almost no padding in the shoulders.

Who doesn't like working buttonholes? You can show off how rich you are in you're "bespoke suit". Who cares if its a bit more to tailor? Chicks know that working buttons = $

For the past several years, Cantarelli has been on of the lower-line Bergdorf suits/jackets. I have a cotton gabardine suit that I bought on sale for like $300 a few years back. The cut is relatively square and it's worth the money if you don't require top of the line. Less flashy that Borgioli, BG's other entry-level suit, and generally pretty conservative looking at BG.

Yoox has a separate section for Sartoria Cantarelli which has one suit. The suit has unfinished sleeves. I almost bought it as it's cheap and I was thinking it could be a 'special' Cantarelli, but could find no mention that there was an upper line for the brand.

They make the lower end Davide Cenci suits as well. By "lower end," I mean only in relation to the other DC suit brands, Belvest and St. Andrews/santandrea.
