Are you serious?
Yes, but like everything Costco, you have to buy two at a time, and the suits have the Kirkland label instead of the RL tag. Hurry, not much left in normal sizes.
haha - right after I asked the question I immediately googled that maker, and saw that suits are like $70.....question answered. I LOVE KIRKLAND suits (and water!)
Yes! 3k RLBL suits at Costco!!!!!
Caruso is still making black label suits...
Those aren't the same suits. New Shoes is referring to the Kirkland Sartoriale line. Full canvas, unbadged RLBL
Wow - you're actually serious. How much do they cost?
You guys got me again!!
Confirmed that Cornelliani makes RLBL now (no longer Caruso).
I was neutral to Caruso to begin with, I feel their work on the Black Line was okay, but not superb. Personally, I love the quality of Corneliani, I have 3 blue label suits ''Made in Italy'' by Corneliani and I ADORE them, the fit, the look, everything. Incredible value for money. That being said, Corneliani seems to have a style of wider lapel, less shoulder, slightly nipped waist and fuller trousers but not too much that fits perfectly with the Blue Label, but not so sure how it goes/will go with the Black Label.
Where did you confirm this?
Ditto - but my tailor says Corneliani are taking short cuts not previously used. He likes Caruso but reckons Pal Zileri is the one to go for. Remember he spends his life looking inside these suits.
That's quite concerning. Did he mention the specific "short cuts"? For what it's worth, I just picked up a Glenn Plaid RLBL for $1,199 (on-sale online), and it is absolutely gorgeous in its draping / lapel roll / fabric quality. Fits like a glove.
