    Called Barneys today about this and they said Caruso has made the Private Label but can't confirm without seeing the label.

    It doesn't look like any of the Carosu labels I've seen before..

    It sort of resembles Piattelli.

    Ha! Wow, really? Cool. I've had it since I started thrifting and almost redonated it.

    Was by Isaia. Now made by Southwick or Lardini.

    I thought it was just the "Brooks Brothers Hand Tailored" line that was made by Isaia. Martin Greenfield made golden fleece until a few years ago, then I thought they had just used Southwick.
    I've never heard of Lardini making GF, just 1818.

    There are current BBGF suits made in Italy. I can't speak to the maker, but it can't be Greenfield or Southwick.

    I doubt it would be Lardini though, I've never heard of them making suits to that standard of quality.

    Lardini is like most suit manufacturers in that they can produce up to different standards.

    Caruso for example makes fused suiting and half canvass suiting for Falconnable.

    Lardini is similar in that they scale up or down on quality depending on the requested specs.

    Sorry, pet peeve: suiting is the fabric. Suit is the garment.

    Carry on....

    I have no doubt as to the differnent standards, but Golden Fleece standards? I'd be very impressed haha. Not to argue though, you could very well be right. Thanks for the info. :)

    Since PZ is made by gruppo, it's safe to just assume it's gruppo forall?

    And can any attest to the levels of gruppo for tailoring? Are they just the Italian mass tailoring house? Kinda like a HF or Joseph abboud of Italy?
