hi gents

i have bought a suit from yoox recently that is under the Castangia brand, i have own 2 other Castangia and this one has a slightly different lable on it, it says "castangia" on it with a small letter "leasure" underneath, not sure if this is a younger more casual line (maybe not as well made?)

i will post some pics when i get home, interested to find out more about this

cheers


Steven

Quote: No. Handsewn buttonholes are even from the right side but uneven or even ugly looking on the inside [unless they have been double worked which is rather unusual].

cheers

I received a suit from the leisure line today, appears to have a full floating canvas, super light shoulder padding and con rollino. Fit is trim, pants are tapered to a narrow leg opening.
