There. These are the words I was looking for in all my ramblings in this thread.

Congrats, good buy at that price. Fact is, if the cut suits you well, they look good, the fabric is most often pretty shitty but dressed up well and looks good for its expected life span. At 335 bucks, who cares if you have to throw a shoulder strap over it while you hurry through the airport etc etc. At 1k it is a waste of cash, but at 300, it is decent buy. Wear it well.

I have received many compliments from the lady's. No, it is not the greatest suit made but; with someone with a 10" drop, I must sometimes go for the fit and looks. I guess as long as I don't stand in the pouring rain, the suit should hold up well.

I would meet with clients wearing a loincloth before I wear Hugo Boss.

Do you work in the garment trade?
How many of your clients would even notice the difference?

Don't get me wrong, I am not a fan, but.......

The only item of Hugo Boss apparel I own is a pair of slacks I got at Nordstrom's sale. I hope this won't get me banned, but frankly, they seem just fine to me. I've worn them quite often. they look good, and I just don't have a problem. I'm sure they were overpriced at full retail, but then I'd say that of most RTW "dress" clothing.

Thread Starter 
I went shopping for a sports jacket today at Harry Rosen and had a look at the Hugo Boss products. It seemed like none of their jackets were made of purely natural fibres like wool, cotton, or linen. They all contained polyester, rayon, etc.

I was disappointed by this. However, it seemed like many of the other big name designer brands were no different (eg. Armani).

The only sports coats that seemed consistently made from high quality fabric were Canelli...but this takes one into a whole other price sphere.


grrrr

Sorry to bump an older thread, but I'm looking for some advice. After trying on several brands of suits, I actually found that the Hugo Boss 38R fit me the best, mostly because it was the slimmest. What other suits in the < $500 range are as slim as Hugo Boss? Brands I tried on: Hickey Freeman - too big in chest and shoulders Hart Schaeffer Marx - too big on me, especially in shoulders Canali - not too bad, just a touch big on me Joseph Aboud - huge all around - was swimming in this Alfani Red slim fit - fit very nicely, but arms/shoulders would dimple badly Hugo Boss - great fit, shoulders maybe just a touch large Really though, I'd like to avoid a fused suit if possible. What else fits similarly?

If you have gone through the entire thread, you'll see that most of the people would agree you buying Hugo Boss if it is on deep discount. Personally, I would agree with them because Hugo Boss may consider to be fashionable piece of clothing, but why not invest in the suits if they made you look good?

Both Red and Black labels by Hugo Boss are not worth anything near retail, as has been stated many times. They do range in fabric quality, however, as I have seen some get up to the super 130's.

Hugo Boss Selection on the other hand is in a much different league. It is normally canvassed, cut similarly to RLBL, and uses quality fabrics. I stopped by a Hugo Boss outlet a few weeks ago and picked up a navy three piece, single breasted, peak lapel, super 150's Boss Selection suit for ~$400. I sell Hugo Boss Red/Black label suits and always avoid them for myself, however my instinctual aversion to Boss was quelled somewhat by the Selection line.

Where can you find discounted boss suits? I live in vancouver and I don't know of any places nearby, I wouldn't mind paying $400 for a super 150's navy suit

After reading through this thread it makes me feel as if I'm dirty for wearing the Hugo Boss suit I purchased last year (on sale for half off). Anyhow, I'm in the market for a navy work suit in the $500 or less range as well. The Hugo fits me well but if I was looking for quality and fit at this price point, what would you guys suggest?
