Actually, no, it's not. That's the giant knock against Boss on this board- you can get higher quality suits for the same price. Hugo boss are fused suits with a fashiony fit- for that fit, which isn't as unique as they claim these days, you're paying a significant markup for a fused suit. $550 isn't too bad for one though, but at $800 with the quality of a $200 suit it's really an issue.
But hey, if it fits, enjoy it as long as it lasts. Don't take it in for cleaning too often, and it'll last longer. And yes, that's really quite okay to do with suits and wool in general.
@ Viral: You ask who would want their clothes to last forever anyway, but then remark that you don't wear clothes from HS anymore because they disintegrated. Would you wear them if they didn't disintegrate? And in terms of suits, which don't float in and out of style, what if your $2000 suit lasted for 20 years rather than your $500 suit lasting 3, and looked better every single time you wore it (which, all other things being equal, it would)? Is it worth it then?
Your logic seems to be that "there is no reason to want clothes to last forever because clothes do not last forever". Which is rather worthless as an argument.
And some clothes do last nearly forever, if cared for. Sturdy wools can last for decades or more. Prince Charles wears tweed jackets that used to belong to his uncle, not to mention stuff of his own that's 40+ years old (and not just the infamous shoes). On a per year basis, he's paying less for a suit then you are.
