Loro Piana Capolavoro - any information?

Today, I picked up a nice fully canvased herringbone navy RTW suit from Boggi at a bargain price... a slightly more modern cut and a change from my mostly tailored and more classic-cur Regent suits.

What struck me was the fairly lightweight and fine wool suiting from Loro Piana with a label denoting Capolavoro (see picture below). Does anybody know or have some information on this fabric range from Loro Piana as it is unknown to me (quality level, etc.)? It feels like it could be in the range of what other mills would term a Super 140s or 150s, but any insights would be greatly appreciated!

Looking for the same information.

I picked up a Blazer Saks made in Italy label. Surgeons cuffs. Beautiful. Love the jacket but can’t find much info on LP Capolavoro

Tried looking around. Looks like its mostly in RTW/OTR stuff.
LP lines of fabric I'm more familiar w/ seeing are like...Zenit, Tasmanian, Zealander, Zibeline, Wish, etc.

Since the LVHM and French takeover I would guess they are producing lines that they are sending to ready to wear only.

I have a Saks RTW overcoat with the same label and its unexceptional. Not impressed.
