    Namely, where does lining cover with regard to the overall structure of the suit jacket (i.e. sleeves, front chest area, etc)

    I was considering a Burberry suit (not made by HF, but their new italian contractor) on sale, and was told that it was half canvassed. I could feel the canvass while I pinch near the buttons area, so I was just wondering if there is a way to check for half-canvass vs full-canvass.

    Thanks!

    Lining and canvassing are two different things.

    Did you try to search before posting your question???
