belvest is made in naples?
or is that just Mr. Rubinacci's tag and the paper tag tells the real story?

The Kiton connection is far-fetched but Belvest makes a good suit.

Could be a good value.

I thought Belvest was made in Biella ? I swear I had a brochure from them saying that.

Juding by the number of views and Q&A, it's going to get pricey pretty soon.

This is Rubinacci ready to wear, probably made specifically for the US market. It is an entirely different product than Rubinacci bespoke, it is not even cut similarly. As noted, Belvest is not located in Naples.

Sold exclusively through Louis and Bergdorf IIRC. I have afew pieces and it has more in common stylistically with Brioni than Rubincci bespoke. Padded, squared shoulders.
