That may be truer for one your age than mine. But yes, I get your point. Today Brioni means high-quality ready-to-wear. Still, the brand capitalizes on its bespoke past in many ways. I doubt there are many who buy Brioni who are unaware of the firm's history on at least a superficial level.

Personally I'm happy that Richard doesn't insist on adding hand-beading to my suits. wink.gif

For their really high value clientele, It's "brand whoring" in the same way that I was brandwhoring when I bought my Honda Odyssey.

Pretty much what Superfluous said.

I've had good exchanges over e-mail with Jon Gray and I think the results won't be bad at all. These things will take several iterations to get totally right, anyways.

Based on your name, I will assume jealousy.
