For menswear, not too many. Most of the major brands license out their suits to Italian factories (LV, Dior, Balenciaga, Givenchy, Hermes, YSL, etc.) Could be a little clearer on what you are looking for/why?

Womenswear makers like Dior and Chanel often have their womenswear blazers and suits made in France. Also, perhaps some of the smaller RTW makers have some jackets and such made there (Paul and Joe, maybe.)

I have a vintage Calvin Klein silk blazer that is made in France. It's a lot of fun.

John, do you know if Lanvin is made in France or outsourced to Italy?

^IIRC, it's Italy, too, especially for suits.

Lanvin currently makes their high end pants in France. The "low end" are made by Canali in Ialy. They also make their ties and socks in France.

All of the recent suits and sport coats I've seen are made by Canali, Belvest, Sartoria Partenopea and Caruso. (At retail price the Partenopea was the best value.) The Caruso was the most expensive!

Nevertheless, given the high population of immigrants (paging M. LePen!) now flooding into France... maybe not.

I don't like the Italian cuts that much. They don't go with my physique that well. I have some Kenzo made in France and they fit great. Japanese labels are good too.
