I have a new favorite maker of tailored clothing - Basile. It's Zegna (mainline) quality at Canali prices IMO.

Square toe Bruno Magli's - at least they were brown.

The difference between PS and Boyd;s is that I don't think Boyd's is any more expensive that other B&M places. (Though I recognize that it is hard to compare PS since they only sell their own goods.)

For high end Italian stuff at predictable high prices, try the shop in the lower level of the Comcast Center. I believe that the store is called L'Uomo. The owner is a very nice guy. His sale prices can be quite good. I posted a question on this last weekend - I pass L'Uomo every day and I have yet to see anyone in...
Just asking - but does it even make sense to worry about durability in a "fashion-forward" suit. Almost by definition - the suit will be out of fashion before it ever wears out.
Not sure if 995 was the tagged price at Boyds - but if not on sale - they'll give you $200 off just for asking. Officially you need to sign up for their preferred customer program - but just promise you will and they'll give you the savings. I just recently bought a (solid navy) Basile suit there at $1295 - $200 = $1095 and I love it. You should be able to find something good there for $1000 if that's your limit.

I walk by this store multiple times every day. There is never anyone in there. (I actually mean that I have never ever seen anyone in there.) The merchandise looks gorgeous - looks like tailored clothing from D'Avenza, shirts from Marmol (tagged at $495 and $495), Romano Martegni shoes. Anyone know what the deal is?
