I am an economist, and I'm telling you, few of our kind would think of doing such a thing and calling it "quality".
Or you could just get a better version of it: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/clothing/suits/tobacco-brown-single-breasted-linen-suit-10-11oz-drapers-italian-linen.html

Also speaking of Kamoshita-san, the most in depth interview @Synthese and I did at Pitti was with him. I found it very interesting, I hope you will too.
In the case or Camoshita, the featured Asian man is Kamoshita-san himself. He is a style icon in his own right as well as the brand's designer and creator, so the picture is relevant to the brand. In general for the pictures on the brand pages, changing them every season to reflect what's in stock would be an additional headache, and they're intended to be photos that give an idea of the brand's heritage and story as opposed to advertising specific products. But when we...
