Help with suede - folio new york quality?

Local Marshall's had some nice suede shirt-jackets. A Joseph Abboud made in Turkey with a $650 suggested retail, marked down to $120. Also had one by Folio New York made in India, same $120 price but no retail tag on it. The Folio seemed to be finer suede and fit me better than the Abboud.

My question: Is Folio New York a decent brand? Or have I been tricked into buying something low quality by them putting junk next to the good stuff?

Thanks for any thoughts.

Folio is largely sold at Off Fifth Saks Fifth Avenue; I'm not sure if it is carried in the regular Saks. I've only seen the shoes, not the jackets. I'd say the shoes are around Mezlan in quality, so I'd imagine that the suede jacket is at least as good as the Abboud one.

Thanks for the comments. I can't find this brand anywhere on the internet. Is Folio New York the same as Saks Fifth Avenue Folio?

I've bought two Folio cashmere sweaters at Off 5th. Folio is a Saks private label. I have seen the Folio brand in the regular Saks stores as well. The sweaters are good quality and have held up well, though I can't speak for any of the other Folio items out there.
