    I am looking at a couple Stile Latino suits but am unsure on the length. I'm 6'1" and the suits are 31" and 31.25" in length from top of collar to bottom of jacket and I'm not sure if that's too short. Also how do Stile Latino suits fit overall, including the rise and seat of the trousers, and what is everyone's opinion on the quality and construction of their suits, like are they full or half canvassed? They both are 100% wool and one is labeled as being super 120 wool. Thanks everyone for the help.

    Full canvas, soft shoulder (meaning no padding whatsoever), flat front slim fitting pants (often with button closure and approx 8" at cuff).

    I own one myself and have sold a couple (both suits & jackets) on B&S. Made by Attolini for the "younger public", so (obviously) less handwork but cut is pretty similar. Fabricwise I prefer my Cesare Attolini, but the Stile Latino's are very nice, compareable with Raffaele Caruso Sartoria Parma and their jackets indeed tend to be a bit on the short side. I'm 6 ft and ideally would like my jacket to be between 32.2" - 32.7" from top of collar. I think 31.25 " is doable though (assuming you do not have an extreme long torso and arms).
