Does anyone have any intel on this brand? My SA at Neimans said it was made by incotex, but I haven't seen it much elsewhere. I picked up two sports coats (deeply) on sale at NM; they're soft construction with some nice details. One of them is a really great fresco weave that's been good for the summer. Does anyone know if they make full suits or maybe what brand(s) have the most similar OTR fit?

They are definately NOT made by Incotex (which is a trouser maker btw - The "group" is called Slowear and its tailoring division is Montedoro). It is possible that Gi Capri does produce for Montedoro, but not the other way around.

Gi Capri is a manufacturer that produces mostly for other brands rather than marketing their own line, so it's nice to see that they are actually retailing at a place like Neimans.

Thanks, @Stilig . That's really helpful. I knew Incotex was a trouser brand--in fact, when my SA said the sports coats were by Incotex, I said, "like the pants?" He seemed pretty convinced, so I'm not sure where he got that information.

I did a little more research going off of what you said and learned that the brand sold in North America is fairly new. From the website of the North American holding company:

Quote: So, that solves the mystery I guess. Also explains why my sports coats were both unlined and only appropriate for Spring/Summer since they're supposed to be unlined without a chest piece.
