Overall quality was probably higher at all levels. I never bought the brand not because I was buying high end,
but because they never offered the Ivy-Preppie style that I preferred.

Stupendous finds, Spoo! Did you thrift or are you working on commission for them?

I have had my eye on these Collar Displays at one of our local antique dealers for quite some time.

I have been after a pair of 1930s Boots for years. These are the famous Regal brand in NOS 11D.. Quite a score when you look at the condition. I suspect they have always been wrapped up in a box and fairly airtight.

Can't wait till they arrive Down Under

I would be interested in seeing a hierarchy of vintage men’s clothing by brand. I know Sulka was very high end, but was Brioni always a top brand (I have a 70’s suit and they seem to be pretty proud of the fact its 100% wool)? I've found myself frequently going to the styleforum suit hierarchy and AAAC shoe pyramid whenever purchasing items on the bay. 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?

Tell me about it! This place is about a block from my house, I do get some decent deals in there, but this particular booth (the one with all the stuff I want) is way overpriced. At least I can walk over and look at it pretty much any time I want to.

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"

Also, many pieces from that era are "proud" that they are wool because its right in the middle of the polyester suit era.
