Here’s the Caruso label on the hand tailored line. The hand made garments have the SA tag.

The waist is fine as it is, imo
Hi,
Thank you! I also think about the waist as well, I can still let them know when i have next fitting appointment. I want to cinch the waist a bit, but i also afraid that i will gain weight in the future for my belly haha. Yes I ordered working button hole and double vent

Thanks all for your comments. I really appreciate it. I decided to go with RLPL since i like their culture and branding more as i feel it has American classic soul (just personal feeling haha). It was long process thou, i had to go back and forth multiple time. Maybe because it was my first time. The guy who contacted me for price and fabric was not the measurement guy. Once i made full deposit, they will process the appointment with the measurement guy in Beverly Hill. It was a bit tricky to figure out the appointment with him because he was not available on the day i off work. However, he was really experienced and knew what he is doing. I asked him alot of question thou. I picked the barathea wool for my suit with little bit shiny. It is a 2 pieces suit. I waited for 2 months for suit. Last week i went to the store for first fitting. It was really nice. All handmade in Italy. I have couple pictures below. Let me know what do you guys think. The suit was light and very comfortable.
Am I missing something? I thought that you wanted Peak lapel.
The photo shows notch lapel, although it is hard to tell on a black suit.

Left side shows the peak - hard to tell on the right but I assume...
