    Wonderful thread. Has anybody else come across any other brands from yoox that they would recommend?

    I just received my Alain Fracassi it was a three piece suit and the vest is quite large the jacket fits well the construction is subpar but I like it so I will keep it. I would Not recommend buying their suits for full yoox price.
    Stell Bayrem a lovely suit very nice a few hand details fits very well

    I have had a very recent experience with the following labels that are frequently stocked up on Yoox:

    Shirts

    Mastai Ferretti: very slim cut but well made for the price

    Havana & Co.: very trim cut and really good fitting shirts.

    Shoes

    Ciro Lendini: very thin leather and felt pretty hard and uncomfortable to wear. Felt more like walking on cardboard!

    Thompson: fits tight and sort of a hit and miss. Used their high top leather boots and they were very uncomfortable and the heel started coming off the sole after almost a month's normal use. Not recommended!

    Daniela Fargion: okay for the price on sale but definitely not worth full retail. Also runs small, I'd say one full size.

    Sweaters

    Alpha Studio: runs small and the finishing was not good!

    D.A Daniel Alessandrini: flimsy and quite disappointing stuff! Fit was extremely slim and odd! Better avoid!

    I dont know if people are still using this thread as a resource i have made some recent purchases which i will share.

    White Gallery- Suit Stunning Suit made by Scuderi. I have had no experience with this brand until now definitely worth what i paid for it I would put it on par with canali / corneliani

    Eral 55- sportcoat Really nice jacket, fully canvassed, nice materials, cool details (linen lined) good fit. FWIW Made in China

    Filomarino- Suit Nice material Really soft tailoring couldn't keep it as it was damaged

    The sartorialist 1958 - Shirt Crows foot stitch, hand stitched button holes, nice fit, ok material

    VIA DEI CALZAIUOLI - shoes garbage

    Also there are Stefano Bi shoes listed as size 10 but they are a size 9 unfortunate as they are very nice shoes

    Had my eye on a Futuro coat for a while that got snagged before me that I was wondering about. Have a few sweaters from 8 that were both super cheap and decent for basics. Sizing wasn't consistent though in my experience.

    I found the brand 8 to have really uncomfortable shoes, do not recommend. MM by Mario Matteo is decent, nothing great.

    I forgot to add that I bought a pair of Angelo Nardelli boots and although they look nice, they are really uncomfortable to wear after a few hours...

    How about Sartore? At first I thought it might be misspelled Sartorial (younger Kiton line), but by the current price I assume It is not. Anyone actually bought something?

    I picked up a couple pairs of wool pants from Santanielo Napoli. Both appear to be pretty well-made. Horn buttons, 110s wool, half lined. The styling on one pair of them is pretty hideous, though...it appears that it comes from a more "fashion" line, and has details like weird metal buttons, a chain that runs from the pocket (removable, but there are extra loops sewn in for it to attach to), and a sewn in cuff that has a contrast stripe on it which presumably is meant to mimic selvedge. It'd be nice if yoox provided better pictures so you could tell this before buying. It's too bad, too, because the wool is very nice.

    Edit: Should also mention that sizing on their pants appears to be TTS and not vanity sized.

    This is a really interesting and necessary thread, thanks a lot. My experience with Yoox unknown brands has been poor so far. It´s great to finally discover that some brands are nice.

    I bought a pair of pants last year by Sartore (mocha, super 130s from Compagnia della Lana). I'm by no means an expert but IMO quality is as good, if not slightly better, than Zanella. Frieschsksys has a number of suits and sportcoats by Sartore, which appeared over the last month or two. The fabrics are from reputable mills but no staples.

    That being said, last week I was able to try on a sportcoat at my favorite men's store while in my hometown in Michigan: true blue in VBC Revenge 150s (I think), flap pockets, two button. It appeared to be half-canvassed while design and quality reminded me of the Lazio from SuitSupply. It was priced around $800ish, to the best of my memory.
