My ratings: 1.Zegna- Fairly pricey, but construction is canvassed and high quality. Â Some people on SF do not like the styling, I personally do. Â Make sure you are getting the main line, and not ones that are made with Zegna cloth (Tessuto Zegna) or the Zegna Soft or Z Zegna lines. 2.Corneliani- The Linea Sartoriale is fully canvassed and nice stuff. Â Personally I think the Zegna is a bit better, but some will prefer the styling of Corneliani. 3.Versace- Lightly fused, I like the styling of this better than Collezioni, quality will be similar. 4.Armani Collezioni- Lightly fused, quality is not up to the standards of Zegna and Corneliani, but not bad either. Â Fairly expensive for the quality, but deals can be found. 5.Hugo Boss- Interesting styling but quality of construction is not too great, fused in a way that bubbling will probably occur sooner than later.
I noticed that you seem to address 'bubbling' on fused suits. I think this is not big of deal. I have 2 hugo boss suits and 2 sports coats they all are well over 8 years old. I still wear them regularly when i go to work. I have not seen any bubbles yet. I do avoid fused suits simply canvased suits feels better when worn. Also I think it shapes better as well (exception to Armani. Armani suits create beautiful drape.) I would not limit my choices in one label. For me, Armani makes the BEST styled knits. If I was to buy knits, I would not look else-where. For dress shirts, I like Hugo Boss. Simply they have youthful style and fit. It does not use crazy patterns like Versace do or not outragously priced like Prada or D&G. For suits, my first choice is Canali. Great quality. Fit may not be for all. Then Zegna. Again, great qaulity but yes, its overpriced. Really, Hugo Boss stuffs are not that bad. But if you are used to hand tailored clothes and specialty labels, you would never like mass produced labels anyways.
