    That model looks freaking anorexic. You should post this in the Quick Questions/Quick Answers thread. Did you even fucking bother talking to one of the CS reps they have on chat? It's supposed to be half-canvassed constructed "entirely in Italy".

    No it's not comparable in quality.

    It's half canvassed.

    Also, RLBL uses Holland and sherry fabrics.

    Lapels are too skinny for my taste and I am not a fan of single vent jackets

    I think you need to do your own research instead of asking people to do it for you because you're too lazy to.

    A lot of these guys are knowledgeable, but it doesn't mean they're your errand boys. Don't ask a question that you can find answers to and expect them to serve the answer to you on a platter.


    On another note, othertravel, where did you gather they use H&S? I have a couple. Doesn't indicate it anywhere. I tried searching for any posts about it too, but came up with nothing. Please enlighten me - this is very interesting.

    What makes you think the suit is half canvassed? Horrible looking suit though

    Probably pick these up for about $150 in the outlet store soon - a size Zero would struggle to fit into this.

    Oh, then that is a suit. I wasn't sure at first, seeing as how it more closely resembles an overly short blue jacket whose lapels have been shrunk down to practically nothing by an evil wizard, worn with a pair of blue tights.

    Still, it's a nice example of concentration camp chic. Heroin chic is so yesterday.

    BTW, I think the model's complexion is slightly more tan than the ideal. It looks like he was almost certainly exposed to sunlight for at least a few moments, probably not more than 5 years ago.

    (Lest I be criticized for ignoring the OP's fundamental question, no, there is no real reason for assuming the suit in question is of RLBL quality. Which isn't really that big a drawback, given that the suit will be laughably out-of-fashion long before any shortcoming in construction would be likely to become an issue.)

    I'll echo the sentiments of the other posters. Horribly thin lapels, way too narrow and short a cut, and single vented. Certainly not worth the price for these reasons. You can do much much better for $1200.

    the lapels would look hilarious on any man of normal stature and size. not a fan of the stitching on the lapel/pockets...im sure there's a correct term for this. I don't think there's a problem with single vented suits though..seems like a preference. - should be noted I only own double vented suits though
