No idea how CT suits are constructed, but as a generic statement just because two suits are made in the same factory does not mean they are made using the same methods, cut, or materials.

Interesting. It would be good to know the truth, here. They're priced like half canvassed suits, and the suit spreadsheet says they are... Some of the suits on their website say "canvas chest piece," which sounds to me like a floating chest piece with fused lapels, like BR... If there is any evidence that these are CT suits being made with no canvas, we should figure that out.
