Price is up there, but the quality is worth it. I picked up two blazers at a sample sale a year ago. The sample sales, by the way, at their offices in LA, are bananas. I was fucking overwhelmed. Walked out of there with 5 shirts, 3 polos, two blazers, a knit, and 5 ties for less than 2K. Literally piles and piles of shirts & polos, and a couple racks of blazers and suit pants. Some damaged, most in perfect condition. Everything I got was a-ok.
I took the blazers to my tailor and he loved them, told me I needed to keep going to their sample sales, that blazers aren't made this way anymore. He was going through all the details with me. If you can afford a suit, go for it. They are really nice. I have the cash flow to get one at retail, but just don't wear a suit often enough to do it. So far the few occasions I have needed one, I go with the BoO blazer and different color epaulet trousers. Mixed suits can be nice when done right.
Anyway, the best investment it he blazers by BoO. I don't own the trousers, but I'm sure they're nice too. Probably less worth the markup than the blazer is.
