Typical group-think/fan-boy logic. Someone disagrees, so they must have "an axe to grind." Maybe it's just what I said in my post.

As for buying an 1818, December 26 is the best day to buy a suit.  30% off plus an additional 15-20% off for purchases that morning.  Go try something on next week and have the SA set it aside until the 26th.  I got my 1818 suit for $505 plus tax last year.

 

Blindly brand-whoring is idiotic. The truth is just...the truth. The 30% discount plus an additional 15-20% off gets past the price issue that I pointed out. PLAY BALL!

Nope, not a fan-boy (god help anyone who is a "fan" of a clothing store...). I've just noticed you tend to poop on BB aggressively at every opportunity without ever providing any evidence for your assertions of poor quality, which makes it sound like you have a personal agenda of some kind. Maybe you don't. But it sure seems like you do.

In any case, I've already spent more time on this than I intended. Happy holidays, VinnyMac. Mcbrown out.

Not to drag VinnyMac's point out anymore,

 

ut isn't it true that most if not all major suit or any other clothing supplier no matter the price or  "quality" of the products they offer employ the same methods, labor etc to make their items? For example, whenever I compare clothes like shirts, pants etc. whether it be from low, mid, or high range sellers they all seem to share something in common-They all have the tag "Made in China", India, Pakistan, et where the ways and means to make their suits, trousers, or polos is often cheap and of low quality.

 

So in the marco view of things isn't it all just same crap to be blunt(not trying to hurt anyone's views of their favorite sellers or anything) it's just how I see these whole debates.

There exist many different levels of quality of items made in China. It's ignorant to say they're all on the same level.

Well not with the suits themselves which appear to be fine and comparable to anything else. I bought the ties because the were something like 70% off the regular price along with the suits that I purchased.
