    Three and a half inches. Not at all skinny (depends what you call normal).

    Sources: I bought mine from Startoriale.com

    Right now the website does not have any inventory, seems that most is on EBay. Anyone else have luck in seeing the entire suit inventory on the website?

    How did you approach sizing? I wear a EU 50 in Canali, EU 52 in Corneliani (Leader USA), and EU 54 in Caruso. Does the soft shoulder and high waist suppression mean one should likely size up (for me likely a EU 54)?

    I am a 50R drop 8 in Canali, Caruso(but fits very slim). The Stile Latino is a 50R drop 7, and it fit fine, my tailor had to nip the waist in a bit more, and let the sleeves out alot (I am 6 feet tall, 175lbs.).

    Just bought a stile latino and the amount of handwork on the jacket is insane. Current version Sartorios have been disappointing so far and will be putting one for sale ASAP.

    Looking forward to see that one on WAYWRN! Why do you feel current Sartorio's are disappointing? I was quite impressed by mine, but that's more than 5 years ago. Has the quality detoriated that much?

    Current season Sartorio is still spectacular...don't know why on earth you would say it isn't.

    I love the older ones and I was mad when I outgrew a 40R :(

    The cut right now is so so from what I've seen.



    Short and looks like something from Boglioli/Lardini. Except they have different lines and I got the most fashion forward line. But my brother loves it :D

    I feel like I should write my own account since I have been trying to find some views on this and I couldnt find enough info. I am all for Stile Latino. Personally I find Attolini to be a lot more relevant than Kiton for Suits. While Kiton surely makes some amazing jackets that have a real wow factor but their suits are hardly worth the price. Attolini suits while very expensive are very well fitted and clean. Most Kiton suits i have seen while super in quality and last a long time ( having one for a good few years making it through many airports) are hardly distinguishable from a much cheaper suit, before close inspection. ( I am not the show off type but when i pay such top $$ I would like my suit to be noticed as at least something nice ) Attolini suits on the other hand somehow seem very elegant, clean and perfect to just about anybody out there.
    Sartorio in terms of construction quality is very much comparable to Kiton, the ones i own i find the material not to be as nice as one expect but the lining canvasing and everything else is identical to anything out of the Kiton factory. So they are not bad at all surely they are not glued but they are miles away from Kiton's mainline. I havent really seen any Sartorio that uses a good quality fabric at least one that you would expect to find on a suit or jacket that has so much detailing.

    Stile Latino on the other hand as I am hearing is not as closely connected to Cesare Attolini, in other words is not another line of CA but a separate entity. However, upon close inspection of the two suits I have purchased from the line after much debate and after wearing them for few weeks I can say is easily as good as any Attolini in the market. In fact it is a lot more functional due to the choice of material. ( most attolini suits are impossible to wear everyday in my experience) SL also has a great amount of handwork.
    I am the perfect size 50 essentially aside from some strangely cut Tom Ford jackets any suit jacket in the market fits me perfectly, hence i am perfectly fine with off the rack stuff.
    The SL fit is perfect actually beyond perfect as good as some of the best Attolini's out there, now i understand that I am sounding like a representative from the company but when I put the SL suit next to a 7000 CS I could not tell the difference. SL models that I have seen all have the same overall design and look buttons instead of zipper on pants beautiful hand stichings and all. they fit well and they are very comfi. I have no real experience with their other products but i have seen that PG's did a cover on their 2015 coat so i am thinking outstanding.
    In my opinion based on what I have seen the quality of SL in terms of what i own and i have seen talked about above ISAIA, Sartoria Partenopea Oxxford ( I still do not understand why Oxxford is in any list maybe to say that they can make suits in the US) and most Brioni's ( horrible cuts in my opinion) and 100 % Luigi Borelli which has been in decline, on par and a little behind CA and Kiton if u consider all that talk about hand work and greater material ( at least at work I really prefer to wear the more simpler lower quality wool) and lower than Caraceni.

    For posterity, and to add to the limited conversation, I have two suits by Sartorio and one suit by Stile Latino. I've been wearing all three on a weekly basis, plus a mainline Zegna, for a year and a half, so I feel qualified to comment. I think the Stile Latino is noticeably better than the two Sartorio suits. The shoulders are a bit softer, there is a bit more handwork, the lapels are a bit wider, and the fabric is of much better quality. I also happen to like the fact that the Stile Latino is a three button rolling to two buttons, which I feel contributes to a nicer roll on the lapels; the lapels on the Sartorio suits roll a bit more flatly. The two Sartorio suits, while nice, are more in line with my suit from Zegna. After wearing these suits for a few years, the Stile Latino has really conformed to my body and fits beautifully. The two Sartorio suits have conformed to my body, but not to the same extent, and don't feel 'broken-in.' I paid about $650 for the Stile Latino on Ehabedasher, and I paid about $850 each for the suits from Sartorio on Ebay. If given the choice I would easily pick another Stile Latino over another Sartorio. I vote for Stile Latino.

    "The shoulders are a bit softer"

    So not a natural shoulder? How much padding would you judge?
    I have a few Belvest's which have virtually no padding, which I
    like.

    I actually just went and checked. All three have less padding than the Ermenegildo Zegna and the Coppley that I own. One Sartorio has some padding, the other has close to nothing; I couldn't find any tags that would indicate any difference in model type. The Stile Latino is somewhere in the middle, but closer to the more heavily (relatively speaking) padded Sartorio. None are close to unstructured like my L.B.M. 1911s or Cantarelli sport coats, although the less structured Sartorio is pretty close. I lift weights and generally hate padding. The more heavily padded Sartorio is a bit too padded for my taste, and the lighter one is fine. However, the Stile Latino still looks more natural on the shoulders than the more lightly padded Sartorio. I'm not sure why this is. It may be because the Stile Latino has a slightly more weighted fabric or maybe it's just a matter of fit.
