    How's the quality of Mark Stephen Marengo jackets? Are they full canvassed?

    Bumping an old thread...

    I met the man himself. He tried to sell me a suit. When I was trying the jacket I noticed a big stitching problem on the arms, he went "uh oh, we will sort that out", then he couldn't find matching pants. At this point it was apparent that I shouldn't waste any money in that store.

    As I know they are fully canvassed and hand finished.

    I also have some pants I bought from his website. It's told to be made in Italy and handstitched in the UK but I don't like the quality.

    My experience is different.

    The suit is well made though I am not sure whether it is fused or canvassed (the person told me it is half canvassed yet I could not find the interlining).

    It is British cut and very slim.

    I believe MSM has three different lines.
