do I need to seriously explain this? first off while some fused designer suits might be very shitty, there are many that aren't (thus your assumption that a fused suit is automatically of poor quality). while there might be a difference in the long run, after years of frequent wear, this doesn't really matter for most of the posters in this forum who are buying the suits, because they aren't wearing the suit very often, or, if they are, would rather have 5 years of looking stylish than 50 years of looking dowdy. this forum values fit and value
more than pure quality. there are many well made pieces that I would never because they fit and look like shit. and, just like in shoes, quality in a suit (and desirability) is determined by much more than construction.
