Getting back to the original topic, Um, I would put Armani Classico and Black label a little higher (referring to HRH's original response) and Cerruti 1881 a little lower. I really think that Vestimenta puts out a quality product, and Armani clothing is at least distinctive, regardless of whether you personally like the style or not. I would also argue that there are finer gradations in the "low end." For example, Hugo Boss and Strellson suits are far superior to RL's cheaper lines. I think that Corneliani suits are rather overrated by members of the forum (though they are certainly fine suits.) I certainly wouldn't pick a Corneliani (or even Canali) suit over one a Gucci. It's easy to pick on the big designers, but the quality of a Gucci suit is easily that of a Corneliani, and the styling is, imo, much more elegant. Not that I would ever pick up a Gucci instead of an Attolini or Kiton, of course.
