Recently I've seen a few suits and advertisements for "Caruso" suits in print leather, not the Raffael Caruso cursive that I'm used too. What's the difference? Is Caruso just a newer model of raffaele caruso? Is it a lower line?

I do not know the answer to your question - except that a "suit in print leather" must be a fake.

Wow I must be suffering from brain damage, no idea how the word "leather" got in there.

I think (not sure) that they changed the name from Raffaele Caruso to Caruso in uppercase. Wonder what happened to the RC Sartoria Parma line ?

The website seems to be using simply 'Caruso'. While checking that I noticed they have a winter collection up. Some, er, interesting looks to be found there.

It's the same, they're all similar in quality apart from the SP line.

Does anyone have any tips on determining which Caruso/RCP sportcoats on Yoox are short (which don't work for me), and which are longer? Is it, as I assume, just always a gamble? Every one I've gotten I've had to return for being too short.

Ah, maybe that's where I was confused - I thought anything that Raffaele Caruso is SP, but I'm gathering it's not.
