I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on the quality of the Jil Sander Tailor Made line, such as this suit. Â I assume that the suit is fused.

Actually, all the Jil Sander suits I have come across have a floating canvas and are not fused. They use the absolute minimum of construction and are very soft and almost un-constructed in appearance, but nevertheless are conventionally made.

Another peculiarity Jil Sander's jackets employ: the shoulder seam does not run on top of the shoulder, but slopes down the back. I hope I make myself clear: the seam begins on the neck where it always begins, right in the centre, but then drops down to end at the sleeve, maybe three inches down the back; thus giving a very soft and round shoulder. (A few bespoke workshops use that cut, but I have never seen it in RTW.)

i have a jil sander tailor made suit
it has a floating canvas front
it is as bengal-stripe describes
they do run on the slim or thin silhouette though, if you have substance to your thighs, you're not going to fit into her pants
