Can anyone chime in on the Quality and FIT of these suit brands - the jacket (runs large/size up/ a lot of waist suppression, etc) and the pants (low rise, moose knuckle).

Thanks!

I have a couple of Boglioli washed cashmere sport coats that I like a lot. They are very well made, and provide a nice slim fit. Oddly, I've not been impressed with other clothing by Boglioli, but these jackets caught my eye, and I had to have them.

I have a Boglioli suit that I purchased this past summer and I love it. It was RTW, and I only had to alterthe pants to fit me. I also have a Powder Blue/Light Blue herringbone pattern by one the brands sub-line/spin off for Coat that I also love, but considered selling. No experience with the other brands.

I picked up my Boglioli suit at a Nieman Marcus Last Call on clearance sale. I only paid $175 plus tax. So, I got a great deal not know that much about the brand at the time.

I really like Adriano & Sons, it's slim and very European fitting... but make sure you have a good tailor anyway.

I don't really care for anything from Raffaele Caruso.

Only one I have experience with is Boglioli. For me, the cut is slim, but doesn't suit my body ( tall, thinish) . The chest puckers, button stance is the issue.

I bought the first one for all the reasons you describe. I'd never heard of the brand but thought the construction was great, and the fit was amazing. The next year I went back to the store in search of the jackets, and then bought my second. I'm thrilled with them.
