    Speaking of Caruso, I came to know today that a store is offering Caruso MTM in Delhi, India. Who the F would buy Caruso MTM in this label loving country ?

    You can't be the only person aware of Caruso in Delhi.

    Caruso? And what configuration?

    Yes. Two piece, SB, 3 roll 2.5, shirt shoulder, no padding, flaps with ticket pocket, three non-kissing (horn) sleeve buttons, fully lined (dark brown"”see picture). Cuffed trousers with one pleat and belt loops.


    Full suit? [​IMG]

    Yep. I'll guinea-pig (verb) your idea for you...


    I look forward to seeing this Mr NOBD.

    So do I, Sir George.

    Probably not but how many would prefer Caruso to the luxury labels is a different matter. Sadly, Indians are label lovers (read whores).

    Anyways, I will ask them tomorrow when I visit.

    Sweet!

    Do any of your other Carusos have the shirt shoulder? Wouldn't mind seeing pics....

    All of them, if I'm not mistaken. This will be the first one (besides the OTR Caruso jacket I picked up last week) without any padding as well.

    I went with the 62015 - I think that was a pretty risky move, hopefully I won't regret it. Two piece, SB, 3 roll 2, soft shoulder, minimal padding, hip patch pockets, matte brown horn buttons, fully lined (lining up to tailor). Cuffed trousers, flat front, belt loops.

    Sounds great. Apart from my small personal dislike of red, I really liked that fabric (from the look of a swatch and the jacket picture in this thread). It will probably be more dashing (in a good way) than my choice.

    Been hanging in my office for a couple of days and didn't get the chance to try it on yet. On the hanger, it looks good.

    I don't see much in the pictures, but I like what I see.
