I recall the mention of St. Andrews - at least for the Collezione Sartoriale line. Can't seem to find those old threads though. Edit: here is one... http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...1&postcount=34 And a different opinion: http://www.styleforum.net/showpost.p...42&postcount=4 I have one LB C.S. suit and it does not really seem to have the Attolini silhouette, nor the Attolini slim fit.

Mine is pretty damn nice

Wish I could be more specific... from my limited understanding of these matters, it is very nicely constructed, good soft fabric and comfortable.

I just picked up a nice, new grey Collezione Sartoriale from ebay so I'm interested in this as well. Can anything be discovered from the product codes on the tag?

Where is the RN # to be found? I looked all over but didn't find anything that resembled a format like this.

Saint Andrews was four makers ago, Attolini three makers back. I've not been able to find out who the current maker is as of yet.

I believe Eligo is two makers ago Andrew....I would also like to know who is the current maker, though.

"The brand Eligo Napoli is owned by none other than Vincenzo Attolini. He is the eldest son of Cesare Attolini and named after his grandfather, who by many is considered the originator of Neapolitan clothing.

He broke off several years ago from Massimilliano and Giuseppe, Cesare's other two sons, to start his own label. He is so proficient at producing high quality goods he has won the contract to start producing all of Luciano Barbera"s suits and coats."

I recently saw an E-bay auction for a Barbera coat. The seller claimed that Attolini was the manufacturer as evidenced by an internal tag marked 'Grilux SpA', which was stated to be Attolini's distributor. My Barbera suit has this tag as well but I have no idea whether or not the seller is correct as to the manufacturer.

I have 2 one from I think the St. Andrews days and one from the Parnepea(sp). Both are good, the St. Andrews one I would put up against the higher makers and the Parnopea one is I would say is just a bit above belvest with Oxxford above.
