Dear guys

Any of you have the experience with Satoria Castangia quality and cut?do they have napoli or milan cut? and do they stay in Boxy or Slim-fit side?

Also how good are they compare to Kiton or Isaia?
many thanks !

p/s: they have "platinum" and "1850" line, is the platinum a higher level label?

Dear @mottykytu

Most Sartoria Castangia pieces are a slim cut. Suits generally have stronger shoulders and more structure in the chest (more Milanese). Sportcoats are softer, sometimes completely unconstructed (more Neapolitan). The Platinum line uses the most luxurious fabrics, this is the main difference between the two lines. All the jackets are fully canvassed with a high armhole and subtle shoulder line and beautifully made. They are better than most currently offered Isaia, some of the pieces are easily on par with Kiton.

If you find the cut right for you, go for it you won't be disappointed.

I have a Castagna sport coat with a Battistoni label purchased at Barney's
around 2006. Barneys carried this line for years. It is fairly structured w/ an
extended shoulder and a longish cut and extremely well-made. When I visited
'Battistoini in Rome five years ago their RTW was much softer.

Every Castangia suit I've owned have had different shoulder profiles.

One was completely natural

One was quite structured and square

One was somewhere in between, but had roped shoulder sleeves

The Battistoni suits / jackets I've owned have been more consistent. Def. more Roman, very similar to Brioni.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
