A couple of years ago yoox used to carry Adriano & Sons, really well made suits and coats for the money. Made by Caruso, and at bargain prices...seems like Adriano & Sons either went bunk, or changed name to Adriano Fracassi. Which later again (or was it before that?) Again changed name, I lost track.

Are these guys still in business? If so, where can one find them? Any info on who makes what for them?

See some stuff from time to time on Ebay, usually made by Caruso, or Sartorio.

Really liked what I saw...slimmer fitting stuff, natural shoulders, nice fabrics, etc. A shame if they went under for good!

I think it was mentioned in yoox thread that they went out of business

No, they had one like jrd617 posted, but in 38R. Couldn't find it through their search though, found it via google. Seems like there's some "hidden" yoox pages here and there, basically old stock/leftover items from brands they don't carry anymore...priced REALLY low

How is the fit? I bought the linen one and returned it, it was so damned heavy! Didn't see the point since it couldn't be worn in the summer and I'd rather wear something else when it's cold.

As mentioned, I think it's just leftover items. You can't seem to find them on their own search, but via some googling you can find older links with some pretty discounted Adriano items.

Found these for example:

http://www.yoox.com/us/49127708UR/item?dept=men#sts=sr_men80&cod10=49127708UR&sizeId=5
http://www.yoox.com/us/49127710WD/item?dept=women#sts=ip_baynote&cod10=49127710WD&sizeId=5
http://www.yoox.com/us/38278670WS/item?dept=men#cod10=38278670WS&sizeId=7

They won't come up on the yoox search, but are apparently still on the site.

Here's the one I snagged yesterday

215$, if it doesn't fit I'll rather just sell it here or on the bay.

Returned. The cotton was nice but it did not drape well and the shoulders did not fit the best. I thought about letting the jacket hang and settle being folded up incorrectly in the box, but decided to pass. Nice jacket it seemed but had some fit issues
