I think it's presumptuous to think that one knows the relevant industry better than the people in it. Things often look much different from the inside of an organization.

The relevant information about an industry, rather

Looking for some CM advice/suggestions.

I need to buy 1-2 suits in staple colors in the next month or so. They won't get too much wear so I'm not looking to spend too much, thinking $350-$400 each. At that price should I just go Uniqlo/COS or get something from Gilt/MH/Yoox? Some of the CKC / Simon Spurr suits they frequently have look pretty decent from the photos.

Probably better off spending $800 on 1 if it's only going to see occasional wear.

If you can bump your budget up just $100 more, you can get something from Suit Supply. Their website is a bit sleazy, but they have a wide range of cuts made from reasonably good materials. Half canvassed, Italian cloths, etc.

They do free returns, I think, if you're not near one of their stores.

Probably Yoox.  But you're going to have to work for it.

Consider someone who is going into any field.  They are less likely to know the bigger brands which are more likely to employ them than what is really a little niche, and not a particularly lucrative one at that.  If you go to Pitti, all of the designers we talk about here are more or less confined to 2 peripheral buildings.  The Dolce&Gabbana and Pradas of the world have the stores, the budgets, the sales.  I talked to one of the organizers of Capsule about doing an installation or runway show, one year.  This was after it had expanded.  She waved in the general direction, and said "How?  No one has any money."  

 

If you are a lawyer, are you more likely to know the big firms, or a little firm with a couple of employees?  Same in fashion.

I've met plenty of people in the fashion industry who are extremely knowledgeable about fashion history and about what's going on today. I've met plenty of the other kind too. Kinda hard to generalize either way, I guess.

That said, I find that people who work for or are into niche brands, which I would say includes most of the brands people are really into on this forum, tend to be more inclined to seek out information about those brands and fashion in general. The other type I find really likes stuff like Vince and Theory and they have no idea where those brands fit in the larger context of fashion. There we go. I did come up with a generalization.

edit: what Fok said while I was typing makes sense, too
