what makes a shirt 'quality'/ more expensive? pix - Page 4

post #46 of 49
Well, if we're talking about the difference between something made of Sea Island cotton and something made of your run-of-the-mill cotton, that's one thing. Thread counts, the ply of the fabric, the fit of the garment, etc --- those are all also relatively objective measures of quality. Although if you can't sense a difference --- if you have to be told the thread count is high --- then it's more novelty than anything else. And I think there's a lot of that going on, which is just an extension of the general concept of spending a lot of money because you're rich and you can (or because you want to feel rich, or have people think you are). I personally like to keep my money in money, not in threads, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

getting fitted for six new shirts and lounging around on the beach for two days, to the tune of $3,500.00 But my next vacation will be watching the Men's SEC Basketball Tournement and staying at the Four Seasons, while wearing "custom shirts" and alot of RTW, and eating one nice dinner in a three or four star restaurant. Less than half the price of Mr. K's shirts, but that way the wife gets her basketball tourney and I can continue to bitch about how I need better and better clothes.

High-quality dye can increase the cost.
