+1, I fully agree But I've always wondered why certain makers ( Like ARMANI ) seem to always have 3% of polyester or elasthane in their suiting fabrics? Is it because they are so cost conscious that they save a great deal for the entire production run by using that 3% of a synthetic? You never see makers like Kiton, Brioni, or Oxxford using synthetics in their fabrics ( or at least I don't ). Good question, but I look at it the other way. I've had two (real!) Prada suits, very long lasting and hard wearing, both of which had some percentage of elasthane, or lycra, or some other man made stretchy stuff. They were very comfortable and breathable, and the stretchy fabric was a great bonus where you have a fairly slim Prada-type fit. You wouldn't have any idea just looking at the fabric that it wasn't 100% wool. I would go for it again in getting a suit made by a "normal" tailor, but the fabric's not easy to find and I think more traditional tailors would look at me like I'm nuts.
