    I've read through this entire thread hoping to find some insight about the caruso label below, but I'm still a bit confused about the line and vintage. I think the label is for the lower line, perhaps. Regardless, I'd just like to know for my own edification, and because this jacket is too huge for me and will be likely traded to someone else.

    Thanks.

    Probably only one line - this is pretty old - my guess is at least 10 years old - likely more.

    I'm curious about the current Caruso items seen on Yoox, although I'm not sure anyone can answer this.

    --> What accounts for the price difference between these sport coats? Both are "Caruso," 100% wool, and "Spring-Summer." The lower-priced one has flap pockets and is fully lined. The higher-priced ones have partially lined interior. Anyone have any guesses from experience or knowledge about Caruso? Thanks!

    It's really impossible to tell without seeing the label and/or the inside tag featuring info like size, fabric composition , etc. Even with the zoom feature they all look like orphaned suit jackets IMO - and not worth the yoox prices.

    Yes, exactly. These might not look right as sport coats. But you could order them all and see for yourself; they only charge $6 for return shipping.

    Thanks. Other than them looking like orphaned suit jackets, do you think the $450 ones match the quality of $800 ones? That's what I'm confused about, since they're all "caruso." Also, would these be 3-roll-2 when unbuttoned?

    Should be similar or same quality. We haven't seen anything less than fully canvassed from Caruso - and we have/had LOTS of Caruso (hundreds of suits).

    Thanks. Better check out your collection! Based on experience, do you think these are 3-roll-2.5 or 3-r-2? Also helpful if you know whether Caruso does/not typically make true 3-buttons.

    We've seen true 3, many 3 roll 2.5 and some 3 roll 2 also (least common) - but 2 buttons and 1-buttons as well.

    I can't find much final product fit pics of Caruso suits. I'd appreciate if someone could link or upload them. Thanks!
