    I happened to see an Austin Reed suit in Marshalls of all places the other day. The tag inside said it was made in Italy. The fabric was really beautiful and it seemed pretty damn well-constructed. I've seen Austin Reed suits that are made in England and then the cheaper "performance" line made in the U.S., but never an Austin Reed made in Italy.

    Well, anyways, it was $150. It was my size and fit me perfecty (though I might take the waist in a smidge). Do you think I found a bargain here? Has anyone heard of an Austin Reed italian made before? What would the retail price be? (it feels like 120s thread count).

    Don't know about Austin Reed made in Italy, but I have one that says Made in England and I love it.

    If it's $150 and your size, I say go for it.

    IMO, who cares, it was made in Italy, it fits you perfectly, and as you said it's a beautiful fabric.

    You can't lose for $150.
