A man with a good point.

10 - 30% of absolute bullcrap items by Dolce should not be used as cannon fodder to call the whole label through and through crap. I agree with general consensus that quality wise they do not hold up to the highest Napoli standards people crave, but then they are nowhere near as expensive (Dolce as a label definitely go for more cutting edge / fashion than an exclusive tailored menswear brand. Their priorities are not to compete with Loro Piana, Zegna or Kiton as makers of fine cloth, nor is it their priority to compete with Brioni or Attolini in constructing the finest suits with all the bells and whistles one needs to display their wealth in refulgent glory). People should drop their brandaphobia. I hate brand whores and posers with a zealous passion, but that does not mean I should hate the brands. I would hazard a guess most here would occasionally flutter on a fashion label item just to mix up the wardrobe a bit
