Quality-wise, if anything the BOO shirt will be worse. I don't understand why people like them. The fabrics are nothing special, the stitching shoddy, the buttons cheap, the cut unremarkable. Must have one great marketing machine behind them! One can do much better by buying a cheaper shirt and getting it tailored.

I wouldn't spend $160 on a hoodie, but then I don't wear hoodies. I don't even own one. A good jacket is worth a premium over a less well made or less interesting one.

I've seen some pretty decent stuff from Armani in even the Collezioni line of late. They seem to be stepping up the quality, with nice fabrics, single-needle stitching, MOP buttons, and so on.

I hope that means you spend at least $700 on speakers, $275 or less on electronics boxes, and less than $25 on wires...

Would you say engineered garnments is a good line to know quality from?

EG isn't high quality, I would say Wings + Horns is better.

Ah, I don't think there is a statistical study on the attitudes of people who buy luxury brands. I was referring to the people that associate luxury brands with good fashion sense and forget everything inbetween, there are many people around my area who wear armani, gucci, prada, hugo boss sloppily and assume they are fashionable or stylish simply because they are wearing a 'nice' brand. You're right, it might not be the majority and thats probably too strong a word, but certainly I've seen a lot of people with this mentality.
