Not really. The post was dripping with spelling errors and grammatical mistakes.

The argument that Collezioni line is more conservative/for older people is bogus. I own a couple of Collezioni Trend suits; they happen to be the most slim-fitting in size 40 that I own.

I don't understand,why so  many people on the internet said that EA is a cheaper line than Armani Collezioni?

 

I check the armani .com,and i found out that the price between EA and  AC are in the same range(except suit or leather jacket)

 

 

Also , emporio armani   is also a stylish brand compare to AC,the customer who bought EA clothes is at 30s or 40s in my country,I don't think EA is a brand that designed for young men with less money(said the internet)

 

 

how do you think?

 

 

why so many people said Ac is a more exclusive brand than EA??

Theres the answer to your question right there. For example some zegna shirts are around the same price as brioni shirts, but Brioni Suits are double the price of zegna ones, hence why brioni is viewed as more "exclusive"

Well before for EA it was mostly people in their mid 20's-30's who were from Jersey, Staten island, or Arab college kids. But i think Armani revamped most of his lines recently (2-3 years back) so their target audience might be a bit different now. I believe EA suits are pretty high quality now, but I've never owned any old or recent ones so i can't comment.

A little surprised that American young men are so rich that can afford EA(In my area most costumers are middle age men)

 

EA is really pricey now, a simple outwear or jacket are around  1000 USD or above(even the ugly ones),it seems to be cheaper  in the past!?

 

 

yeah I agree,Armani  revamped most of his lines recently(EA ,EA7,armani jeans ,AC)

I remembered back in the mid 90s EA had a big store at South Coast Plaza (CA) and I really like the products EA had offered. However, its styles had changed over the years to very slim looks. At least the cloth are still made in Italy unlike the cloth from the CollezZioni line which had be outsourced to other European countries..

If i remember correctly...Armani Collezioni ​ used to be designed and manufactured by Zegna, after early 2000s Girogio Armani SPA decide to purchase some of its partner manufacturing company, since then EA had gotten much better quality because most of made in italy RTW is produced by the factory directly own and control by armani group with the same standard as black label.

 

Top tier brand like LOUIS VUITTON, Gucci, they take almost 100% control of their manufacturing factory, which means this ensure the quality and design of every product made from this brand.  For some more lower tier luxury brand like Giorgio Armani SPA or Dolce&Gabbana, they license some of its lower tier line to other company to run and manufacturing. & form Dolce & Gabbana, is carried in department store, its the cheapest brand in the house, it is not really designed by DG, it is cooperate with company like ittierre SPA. So is the same situation for Armani Collezioni. Remember, in italy, only the lower tier brand carried in department store.

 

 Armani Collezioni  is outsourcing and most of the products is not just made in eastern EU, it's made in Turkey, China. Most of  knitwear from AC is made in China The quality and touch is completely different comparing to GA or EA, just go to their boutique and feel it yourself. AC is Armani's walmart, the clothes is mass production, it target customer is place like China and America. no cutting and design at all.Since I am from France I know that in EU at least  in south and mid europe, EA is much more  popular than AC. Not much people talked or care about the Collezion in italy. The real man with money wanna dress classic will look at real fine clothes in Hermes or lora piano.  AC targets at poor  income level people who wants the lebel of Armani. Even their signature suite is not made in italy this season at it's selling at only $1300 at Armani.com, it's really cheap ,like Paul smith.

 

 

I do consider some of EA's product is over price and not worth buying. For example its shoes and bag and all the accessories, the quality and the "touch" is obviously not in the standard of a luxury or designer brand. Al thought some of the womens bag is made in italy, it feels like made in china. I also bought a lambskin jacket in 2012 AW,the quality and texuture of the leather is okay but not in the same level comparing to the ones from Prada or Gucci, i think is overpriced. However most of EA's RTW is very nice, in terms of both quality and design, it gives you the very similar experience with the one from Gucci or other top luxury fashion house. My first EA  is a runway knitwear from 2011 collection(looks 45), i remember it retailed around $400 in USD ,made in italy , the quality and stitching is very good. the design:  timeless and elegance, yet still looks good now . EA's runway design usually doesn't go out of dated, comparing with some more flashy looks brand like Gucci or Valentino.
