I would be interested to learn what makes you say something like this. Is it the patterns used in the suits that Nordstrom carries or your assumption that they are not built to the same quality standards/fabrics as suits carried at other retailers? I am not an expert on the relative quality although, I wear high end tailored clothing, eg Isaia, Belvest, Sartorial Partenopea, Battistoni, H.

Mostly into my private "clothing museum" Some things that I can't bear to part with like shirts from defunct stores like Dunhill Tailors and Andre Oliver.
