Is that a different line from the other normal Corneliani and Trend Corneliani lines?

they go like this

1. Corneliani bespoke
2. corneliani linea sartoria
3.corneliani
4. Corneliani leader
5. corneliani trend
6. corneliani cc collection
7......

never seen a "cc collection" but a cuple of "trend `corneliani" i have differ somehow from the "Coneliani", they are more easy going but they still cornelianis and you dont get confused in the crawd, i bet the same goes for the "cc collection". The "linea sartoria" is really superb. But probably the best suit iv seen and owned, is a "corneliani" model "Evolution" ticket pocked, single vented, a really James Bond thing, unbelivable elegance Im gona show some photos of that thing one day

From Corneliani's website:

CC COLLECTION CORNELIANI is dedicated to younger clients, typified by the young man who demands an excellent price/quality ratio and elegance combined with good manufacturing quality.

Attention to details makes garments fresh and never commonplace, with basic workmanship that uses good quality fabrics and a clear stylistic component.​

Trend is the slimmer line. Think of RLBL...

I saw this CC Collection only in trousers.

I own 5 CC suits and I prefer them the the main brand. They are slimer and look better on a 30 guy. I hate trend by the way. I got money to buy main line of course but I prefer CC they seemed to catch my measures far better than any brand.

Does anybody in here on a "CC Collection" by Corneliani suit and can compare it's quality to Corneliani's higher-end lines ? Are they fully fused or at least half-canvassed and what do they averagely retail for ?

I own 1 Trend Corneliani for the same reason. It was when the line was first introduced (so it was going back a few years) and I figured instead of buying Mainline and trying to nip it down - just get the suit that fit right off the rack. Plus, with the lower MSRP and 40% off they could be had at very low prices. The suit if half canvassed, has a beautiful fabric and has served me well. The downside - I never purchased a second because I felt the line took a step backwards after the initial introduction. The quality of the fabrics seemed to diminish and the fit and button stance were altered killing it for me.

Trend and CC are sportier diffusion lines. You are trading a little quality (full canvass, quality fabrics) for more modern styling and pricing.

Although I'm not in my 30's yet, this ( besides the price aspect ) is also one of the reasons for my interest...

So... are the "CC Collection" suits half-canvassed or fully fused ? I'm interested in one of their suits which, based on the measurements, seems to be almost perfect for me and, with a bit of luck, maybe won't even need any alterations. Unfortunately, the seller isn't competent enough to do the "pinch test" and tell me if it's canvassed or not...

^ Thanks. Any idea what they averagely retail for ? I mean... It's hard to say if I'm making a good bargain or not without any clue. The very few "CC Collection" suits I could find were available on Yoox and around $550-$600, what implies that the retail price would amount to about $800 !?

In Europe I have seen them from 450 to 650 euros depending the fabric.

Just picked one of these up off B&S. They are half-canvassed

Very similar to hickey, except the button stance is lower and the jacket has less shoulder padding. Also, the pants aren't as skinny as hickey pants. I'd rate CC Corneliani above hickey.
