So why shell out $500 for the HB rather than buying an AX or for that matter any of the interchangeable brands you can get for $200 on sale at a department store?

My thoughts on HB are:
1. If you are 44R or larger you could always find better made suit elsewhere.
2. If you are 50 and older you can definitely find a better suit elsewhere.
3. Boss has young cuts that complement fit, younger guys.
4. Fabric prints are also more interesting and young compare to usual, drab variety that you find at STP, Ebay or Filene's.
5. HB is a suit to wear to the club or party. HB is not a good place to find a suit for interview or work as you can always find those cheaper work suits made by venerable Canali-Corneliani-Zegna family on deep discounts at Filenes'(somewhere around $300-350 on sale), but the big downside is ...: they are almost always of drab-print variety.

So for younger, thinner Size:36-40 guy who is looking for a party suit HB is good.

BTW that is the difference between 30 y.o. man and 50 y.o. man. Where 50 y.o. man dresses for himself, thus prefers Isaia that only he could caress and appreciate, where 30 y.o. man dresses for stupid chicks who would never know the difference between AX, HB and Oxford.

right in the bull's eye !

I personally and without any shame wear H&M $125 suits (on 50% off sale) to smoky, beer-spilling, sweaty-dancing clubs
