This sort of came up from a recent post in which one person referred to Botany 500 as a quality brand, whereas another poster thought it was pretty average. Was Armani every really a quality brand? Might a more experienced member start a pyramid?
As I recall, in the early 70s Brioni was touted as very high quality. When Barney's New York was transforming itself from a clothing discounter at the time, to a high-end
destination store, Brioni was featured in their "International Shop"
