I saw a NWT Polo RL suit made by Corneliani for $500, however i had a hard time telling whether it was fully canvassed or not. It was 2 button, pick stiching, fairly slim....

FAIK some are, some aren't. I would guess half from what I have read. Only way to tell is by testing it I guess.

I know the MTM suits are.
IIRC, the OTR ones are not.

Assuming it was half canvassed, for 500 it feels like i should get one as the current BB 1818, which is also 1/2 canvassed is about the same price (2 for 998) and they are made by Southwick?

OTR Polo Blue Label is half-canvassed, assuming we're talking about the higher-end stuff that's made in Italy. I have seen one exception to this, but that's all.

They're nice suits. Can be found pretty commonly for $400 or thereabouts, so don't pull the trigger just because of the price. Of course, if it's a solid, that makes it a better deal, as they're harder to find.
