I know Scabal makes fabric, but does anyone have any knowledge or experience with Scabal suits, jackets and pants? Are they available stateside?

Thanks all,There is a shop in Cologne (Germany), where I bought a couple of MTM shirts (Emanuel Berg, if that means anything to anyone of you). They also offer MTM Scabal suits, and I do mean Scabal brand suits, not only ones made by Scabal fabric. I recently received a promotional letter for a trunk show, indicating prices of 700 Euros for cotton, 800 Euros for S 130 ( I think it was).
While I was in the shop on shirt business, I had fingered one of the suits that they have for fitting purposes. It seemed to be fused, so at that price point I am not interested. I'd rather pay a lot less for fused, or a bit more to have canvas.
To be fair, I have not inquired about canvas, maybe they can do that if requested. I just didn't have any reason to educate myself any further. Maybe I will the next time I'm in the shop for a shirt.
Thanks, I had checked it out yesterday and agree, it's not that helpful. Even the information on their fabrics, for which they're well known, isn't that helpful.Here's the link to their made-to-measure site. Â I'm afraid it's not terribly helpful: http://www.scabal.com/index2.php?cat...ade-to-measure
