    Zegna has fabric grade marked on the label, does Brioni do this?

    Thanks

    the only thing i've seen brioni do is a small additional label sewn in the lining (like the Brioni for Neiman Marcus) which notes "Super 150s" cloth.

    If I remember correctly, they don't really do anything below super 120s and Loro Piana cloth made up a large section of the swatch book. This was 3 years ago however, so take what i say with a grain of salt.

    The few Brioni suits/sportcoats I've seen that use Escorial wool are tremendous (tremendous price tag, too) [​IMG] koji

    Well, I asked the same question to Brioni, but they said they do not know either since they do not have the fabric anymore. Which means that the label show no indication of the fabric grade [​IMG]

    I haven't seen any RTW Brioni in less than Super 150's in at least the last 2 years. It seems like its 150's for the lower price range($4,800 or so) and 180's for the higher ones(over $6,000)
