We'll yesterday I had a brush of greatness. I was out of town and my wife and I were doing some shopping, and the mens store we went into was relocating so they were having a huge mving sale. On the 80% off rack was a suit. Look inside at the tag and read "Brioni". Look at the size and its a 56. I tried it on and it was a tad tight fighting closer to a 44/45 US. The price was $950 (originally $4500.00). I seriously contemplated firing on it and losing a bit of weight.
More drops...only three ties left.
More Price Drops
Picked up a recent Armani tie for $2 (not narrow but not super wide). Also found a BB button down in my size for $7. More than I like to pay, but it was in excellent condition (made in US of Italian woven fabric).
New ties added/Price Drops
The Boss suit I have isn't bad and was purchased at a steep discount. That said I would spend more them a couple hundred on a new one. Now the Kenneth Cole NY I purchase new (even at $125) was not money well spent.

My first suit was a Polo University Club that I bought in college in the early '90's for interviewing and it was worth every penny.
