I met with a J. Hilburn rep today and took a look at a sport coat, shirtings and suit fabrics. The sport coat said "Made in Portugal." It felt half canvased with fusing. The fabrics were "no name" without reference to country of origin or mill. J. Hilburn strikes me as the Amway of MTM clothing. Reps are hired without training -- she had no idea of fabrics, construction or source of material. They will hire anyone and say "go get them." Based on what I saw, their shirts...
Breitlings are nice sporty watches, not dress watches to be worn with a suit & tie. Within your buget are a lot of nice watches by Omega, JLC, Girard-Perregaux, Baume & Mercier. IWC as well as slightly used top tier watches (Patek, AP & Vacheron). Go shopping in Switzerland knowing that prices are probably lower here in the states.
Just in time for Fathers Day.
According to the article, Stefano Ricci has sold three of these ties in the US. I'm waiting for one to show up on the SF Marketplace.
