    Does anybody know how they compare to caruso's other lines? Also is this name still used or has it been discontinued. Thanks

    This is mainline Caruso stuff. I have Ma.Co. suit bought from Yoox - natural shoulders, great quality, modern fit - a bit short. May be even fully canvassed - I'm not sure.

    If it is up to par as mainline Caruso, it should be full canvassed.

    i don't know if this is coincidental or not, but i've found the quality assurance on MaCo gear to be a bit suspect. suits within a given model can be all over the place with respect to fit - sleeves, body, shoulders...

    Thanks for the info guys. Are suits still being made under the Maco name?

    The suit jacket is about 1.5-2 inches too short for you. Either it is a "short" or you are a "long". It's fully canvassed, and it does need some adjustment, but that's typical for anything off the rack, even made to measure. Generally looks good other than it's the wrong size for you. Only with Bespoke would you a suit that lays perfectly on your frame.

    I don't think it is too short. The side picture shows the suit covers his ass completely. And the front view shows the suit at the same level as his thumb knuckle .

    Suit length looks OK to me too.

    Caruso is in general very short. I'd be more concerned with the pattern than the length :uhoh:
