    I know and have suits of the following italian Tailors:

    M. Caraceni - Milan
    L. Colombo - Milan
    G. Campagna - Milan


    ah! It seems you like the slightly more structured suits. How do you rate the work of Campagna against Caraceni?

    Looks like it will be a fine suit. A tigher fit than I prefer, but the balance is just right, and the armhole is excellent. I also like the wide lapels.

    Thanks for sharing the pictures, Herbert.

    I really like the lapels - a little belly, very wide with high gorge - superb.

    .. both have the same problem ... the cutters and tailors are others ... so you can have a great suit if you get the right on.

    It only depends on who the others are....
    Cheaper than Brioni ,Hunstman,Kiton or Everest?

    It is sometimes very rude to talk about money but i'm a kind of pragmatic guy ....
    Let's say roughly for a super 150 two buttons suit....

    Do i book my ticket for Milan or not?
