Completely depends. Some of it does have to do with quality, most has to do with what you are doing to them. Obviously the finer the fabric, the more delicate it tends to be. a $2000 suit can be of the best quality you could want and still not hold up to a beating if the fabric is very fine. On the other hand, there is a reason there are tons of vintage suits still available from the 1940s and 50s. There is no set shelf life for a suit. Again, the less you wear it, the...

Then again, simple often turns out badly too, although perhaps not as epically.
 The influence of Trad Ivy I would imagine.
