Has Caruso stopped making suits for RLBL?

    I noticed there is no 'Caruso tag' inside the fall RLBL suit collection. There is only a generic looking 'made in italy' tag. Are they only doing purple label now?

    RLBL used to have explicit "Caruso" tags?

    It's been a couple of seasons, at least, since they stopped putting the label which identifies the manufacturer in RLBL suits. Occasionally I come across a NWT suit with the Caruso label, however the last example of this was a 3-piece and the tag was on the vest only.

    Haven't noticed but didn't check. Those tags aren't in the RLPL jackets either, are they?

    Well that's the thing: RLPL suits/jackets now have the Caruso tag. RLBL has a very generic Made in Italy tag. That's why I'm wondering if BL is made by another manufacturer, and Caruso is utilized specifically for Purple Label.

    That's the Caruso tag I'm referring to.

    My understanding is that St. Andrew's doesn't make RL items anymore.

    I believe that this is true. If you do a search I think Earthdragon started a thread on this a while back.


    I've never seen them sold anywhere in London under their own label (Santa Andrea?)

    That would explain why I keep seeing RLBL at Costco. [​IMG]
