    Wait, what is GF? PS's Canadian make is extremely good. The shoulders and armholes are constructed by hand, it is fully canvassed and the rest of the suit is finished by machine. They are handcut however.

    Paul Stuart has great suits, much nicer than Brooks Brothers, but I'm not sure how well they fare vs Black Fleece, but I am guessing not even close since Paul Stuarts felt and fitted as nice as RLBLs.

    Does construction differ at all from the standard Samuelsohn make?

    Being hand cut is for sure one. Because Paul Stuart has some soft shoulder models handwork is required in the shoulders. In fact they need to be made by hand to let give properly. They're made with silk thread, which believe it or not isn't very common in factory made clothing. But also one of the reasons people buy it at PS is the customer service aspect.

    I was curious about that as well. I might make the trip to PS based on the good things I heard on the forum.

    Are they all fully canvassed? I bought one off ebay which was a low cashmere blend and I can't tell if it is full or half, but after I got it fitted I love it!

    PS is always fully canvassed. PS has incredibly high standards. The Canadian make is just the beginning to the levels of quality PS offers.

    Construction, i.e., actual sewing, does not differ.
    Maybe there is some handwork in certain models.

    What differs is as follows:
    - Silhouette. PS has their own models which Sammy does not sell under the Sammy label. The cuts of the PS suits are exclusively PS's
    - Fabric. PS selects its own fabric..it is not stock Sammy fabric

    Best way to think of it is as though PS is doing CMT with Sammy as the manufacturer.

    I was a foreman at Samuelsohn so maybe I'm biased, but I think they represent excellent value.
