    Does anyone know anything about them, whether they're still made and what the retail typically is on them? I can't find any real information about them, even here, other than shirts/ties.

    Thanks. But still curious about the quality and whether these are super old stock (that won't have a current cut; can't tell on their models)?

    Get the Sartoriale line which used to be made by Attolini and Sartoria Partenopea and try to avoid the LB Club line which makes fused suits

    That's what I thought as well however when I was in HK last year, some of the LB Club line is canvassed. Maybe someone can verify this.
    LB Mainline is already good quality but Sartoriale is excellent.

    Attolini made them like a decade ago so that would be old stock for sure. Good thing is that most Attolini are cut timeless. I recently saw a newer model LB made by Partenopea I believe.

    I just returned one of the yoox suits, it had very boxy built up shoulders and a non-flattering cut with pretty low gorge. it was club line aswell

    One thing that I would be interested to know is whether you can actually "date" the Sartoriale range? I have a new LB Sartoriale which I would guess is around 5 years old and it appears to be made by Attolini.

    Cheers

    Rex,

    Which LB suit did you buy on yoox? I am thinking of getting one of them.

    Thanks!

    I'm looking at one there too. It's only $325, so I'm leery. I don't want to get some off-line from them thinking it's possibly mainline. Given the price point/original price I'm assuming it isn't main.

    Luciano Barbera Sartoriale suits are very nice and at least some of them are made by d'Avenza. Fully-canvassed, of course, with lots of handwork (hand-attached collar, hand pick stitching, handmade buttonholes, etc.), working/unfinished/ cuffs, horn and corozo buttons, cupro lining, very nice fabrics - i.e., excellent RTW suits, and they're completely manufactured in Italy, i.e. fabrics are always woven in Italy.
