    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws....MEWA:IT I asked the seller if the suit is fully canvased and what parts of the suit are hand made. His reply was that according to his distributor, the suit is canvased and hand made from France. However, he also said that he has no way of checking it, which means the seller does not know what a canvased suit is...

    unless this was one of those small labels that nobody knew about but you knew it was good, i'd be stunned if anyone with any knowledge would spend 300 on this when they could get a far superior suit for a little bit more. sometimes those "good deals" turn out to be gigantic wastes of money

    Ernest is in france - why not PM him to ask him if he's ever seen this in the stores? I'm going to guess that he has not, or if he has, it is really a 600-1000 dollar "boutique" suit that isn't worth half that.

    Look at the seller's other items... i'd bet money that it is the french equivalent of Naldini.

    Be wary of suits with dozens of labels all over the sleeves

    Nothing special, and certainly not bespoke..
