    Hi all -

    I was hoping you could help me out with a suit I found...I will preface this by saying I'm a newbie so if this seems like a dumb question, it very well my be.

    I was at Burlington Coat Factory with my wife and decided to peruse the suits. I came upon a suit that appeared to made by (and this could be the wrong spelling) "Georgio Andreani", but when I looked at the labels inside, it had a "Cerruti 1881" label followed by labels that said "100% Merino Wool" and "Made in Italy". Am I to assume that this is just Cerruti fabric? The "compare to" price was $900 but they had it for $159....nice charcoal gray with blue pinstripe.

    Anyone ever heard of "Andreani"....I think I may have the wrong spelling because I couldn't find it anywhere on google.

    Could be anything, but the Cerruti tag most likely refers to the fabric supplier. Cerruti makes a lot of fabrics. A lot of bad suits, as well as some good stuff, gets made out of their fabric. Don't read too much into it.
