Not sure about the different level of Canalis so are you saying that the RLBL is better in quality and fit than the Canali suits in store that m.s.r.p. from $1500-$2000?

Maybe you should tell us how one fit can be better than another for everybody first

Why would you want to waste your time with either one when you can buy a custom suit for that amount? OTR sucks! I don't care whether its Brioni, Canali, Armani, or Ravioli, a custom suit that is made just for you will ALWAYS fit better than an OTR created from a generic pattern!

If you've got $1,500 to spend on a suit then get a custom made suit. Would you rather have Ralph Lauren's name or your name sewn in the lining of your suit?

to be honest with you I've never really been a fan of Ralph Lauren. Not until I came to this site and actually went into the RL store today here in Houston and looked at a RLBL. I wouldn't pay m.s.r.p. for either.
