I was in holt renfrew the other day looking at a pretty ordinary blue button down shirt (w/o a shirt tail, it was straight around the bottom meant tobe left untucked). The buttons were sewn on with the horizontal stitching instead of an x pattern and they were almost falling off of the shirt cuffs. I looked at some other stuff and it wasn't much better. Come to think of it, i can't even remember if they were even mother of pearl or plastic heh... Aside from the buttons, the fabric is nice enough (cotton), but that alone doesn't come close to justifying the price tag. Keep in mind this is a shirt that costs 450cdn. Prada really makes my $300 zegna dress shirts look like a bargain heh. From what I've seen the quality of their shoes is a lot better, but their clothes looks like pretty crappy quality imo. You'd think for that much they could sew the buttons on properly. I'm no expert on tailoring and different types of stitching, but there was more than one piece that looked like it would fall apart with use.
