What spence said, holds true for everything I have ever owned that is Caruso.
+1 - Caruso (at least when they make it for Lanvin 15 faubourg) seems runs small in my experience. Maybe not a full size like Sartorio sometimes does, but certainly a tight version of whatever size is listed. Interestingly, the stuff they make for Barney's house label (with basted sleeves, etc.) seems to run slightly large. I have one e52L Caruso-made Lanvin which seems to fit more like a US 41 (and that sizing appears to be consistent with other 15 Faubourg stuff they make). When I tried on the Caruso for Barney's suits, however, a US42L felt more like a 43. Perhaps as someone else pointed out, it is a function of individual retailers compensating (or not) for perceived variations in sizing. My guess is that in this case, the Barney's sizing is the outlier and what they do for Lanvin is closer to the originally-intended sizing, but that's pure conjecture.
I got a Caruso made for Barney and it ran smaller. I'm usually a 38S, but 40R was almost identical to my 38S.
