How many people really have had the suit fall apart? How many lapels are bubbling? I have never seen this in my life. Not to say it does not happen, but in my world it does not seem to be happening too much.
Sorry if this was already stated in the thread, I only skimmed it. But it seems to boil down to members of this forum appreciating craftsmanship. A canvassed suit simply is more 'work' than a fused suit. There are other advantages but to 99% of the population it doesn't matter.
The main thing is that it seems that Hugo Boss charges a premium for a suit that is made in a similar fashion to low end suits. Knowing how suits are made, why pay as much or more for fused than canvassed? It's been discussed in many threads that 'fused' today isn't the same as years ago, technology is better so you can get a perfectly fine fused suit that will last a long time.
Of course, you can wear a perfectly fine Timex that will be very accurate, but would you pay $3000 for one? You don't buy a Rolex for it's impeccable accuracy, you buy it for the work involved in the product (and the prestige frankly).
