Im trying to decide b/w a Lunificia Barberossa super 150's wool/cashmere blend which also said sorrani on the sleeve , single vent

my other choice was a Gianni Manzoni super 120's, no vent

They both fit well

I have never heard of either of these companies but the salesperson told me they were both quality - any information about the companies would be appreciated

Sorry - have not seen either in person, but I would be suspicious based on the names. Many companies like to capitolize on the names of established high-end makers by producing products with similar names, even though the quality is low.

'Lunificia Barberossa' sounds like a wanna-be Luciano Barbera,

Probably a subdivision of Barbarella Clothing
