Varvatos is one of those in-the-middle designers where you do pay a bit for the name, but you also get a pretty good quality product which will remain stylish for a while. Quality is a lot better than, say, Prada or D&G, and will also be 'in style' for longer, but not quite as good as, say, Incotex. $140 is more than I would pay, but it still sounds like a good deal. What was retail, $300?
