    A. Harris has previously stated that, at least at some point in the past, Attolini made some of LB's top-end collection-label suits.

    Yes, absolutely made at the same factory, but not anymore apparently.

    EDIT: And if you can get one of them (can't miss on the identification part, there), you'll have found a real treasure. Last time I saw them at BG - about 9 months ago, they were a fraction of the price of proper Attolini Sartoria, yet 99% as nice and non-existent/form-fitting.

    Used to be, and you will still see new with tags examples on ebay from time to time. They are the ones with the inside breast pockets edged in the shell fabric.

    That's made by Attolini??? Do those LB coats have the same detailing that typical Attolini coats have? ie) hand pick stitching on sleeve seams etc? Who is making current LB suits/sportscoat? Thanks

    Yes, it is.

    I don't know who is the current manufacturer is yet. They are nice, though the silhouette has changed - the coat is slimmer, with narrower shoulders and lapels, a higher button position, and less lapel roll.

    This sounds like Isaia to me? BTW, do you think this is made by Attolini? http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....IT&rd=1

    The silhouette is indeed similar to some of Isaia's models, but they aren't the maker.

    That jacket isn't Attolini. It looks like it could be a variation on a jacket that I bought from Lance (mine's a suit actually.) Not sure who made it, but it's nice. Totally soft construction, no padding whatsoever. Or it could possibly be Saint Andrews.
