I am a guide, but I also am a tailor. I went to visit their workshop and loved very much their style and quality of fabrics. That's all I can say about them.

Sorry for not being more helpful, but I am sure if you get in touch with them thy'll give you all the infos.

some of the finest "suits" I have ever seen are made by Gammarelli near the Patheon. They have been the tailor to the Pope for centuries. (literally) I do not know what the charge, but their fabrics are phenominal.
