The nwt Zegna pants I bought from you for $125 were a great deal. I wish you hadn't slept in them a few times before mailing them out to me, maybe next time I will go $700 MTM so this won't happen.

Brands play a huge role. Buyers tend to find out on the forum what kind of cut and fit certain brands will have, as well as the quality. They prolly are not buying the brand for the label, but by the info available about the brand. Although they are most likely buying based off a...

You could be right, I was just pointing out what I saw when I first looked at the suit. Pics can be deceiving I think. He is better dressed than most I see on a daily basis.
