    You're likely thinking of Liverano & Liverano? Those suits are by Prologue Hong Kong, who were undoubtedly influenced by Liverano (who are immensely popular in Asia).

    Wow, I have “we remember Budapest very differently” reactions to Canali vs Samuelsohn. Canali is very exquisitely made and fits me like a glove. The other is a bit chunky and stiff except for their Paul Stuart stuff which is a bit confusing.

    Really? Looks awkward to me. Greatly prefer flapped pockets.

    Very neat of course but that look maybe works on Ralph Lauren himself or a few other folks. Way too awkward for most of us.

    I’ve tried a few on at Saks. Not bad but still a bit stiff to me.

    Yeah, I’ve settled on Canali as my go-to brand after years of experimentation. A bit of a one-trick pony now I guess. :-D

    Still, lots of Zegna, BBGF, HF and Oxxford still in rotation!
