Corallorosso by Isaia - how's the fit / button stance?

I have seen varying accounts of these?
Some say fully canvassed some say they are of subpar quality.

Given a similar fit to mainline Isaia, how much of a discount would you give in your willingness to pay for a Corallorosso?

Anyone with input? thanks in advance

My understanding is that the older ones were fully canvassed, but the newer ones are half-canvassed. I haven't handled one of the newer ones though--that's just hearsay from the forum. I do have one that I think is from a season or two ago that is fully-canvassed, and seems to be decent quality overall.

I have a suit from at least 2 years ago (though not sure how old it is; I bought new from an SF/eBay seller) and it is fully canvassed.

Decently good quality, and a nice cut.

I recently picked one up that is listed as Fall 09 on the tag. I believe it is half canvassed, but don't quote me on that (still a rookie at determining this stuff). It seems like a really nice suit, though I only have Jos A. Bank suits to compare it to (college graduation gift).
