& is Armani Exchange type stuff. I like the occasional D&G piece but IMHO it's like most Ittierre produced stuff - overpriced and overstyled (in a crass, obvious, too colorful way). S/S is always clubwear. Dolce & Gabbana has the best tailoring among the three, if you're lithe like a swimmer it's bound to fit you well. IMHO it's also the most typically Italian line - stylistically it's a bit rockstar but has an authentic feel to it (see F/W 2002).
