This isn't true of all brands, Schneider stands out. Generally his collections as a whole are pretty memorable and good (at least FW), very nice fabrics, outerwear and knits are definite strengths and even basic shirts/trousers are interesting. I would also argue that Geller is pretty similar too; his collections often have a wide variety of what's "good"...jackets, blazers, pants, shirting.
It's easy to single out W+H because it's much more accessible than Lanvin or Margiela, many more people have handled/owned a wider variety of W+H. Both Lanvin and Margiela suffer from the same problem lately.

Yeah definitely not worth it at $60. Do you not like Gitman fit? I find that differtent fabrics are better than others, fit wise. I stay away from Gitman oxfords but their more interesting fabrics like flannel/chambray/linens often feel better/are a bit slimmer.
