I have a real love/hate relationship with this brand. I really like the styling and colors of much of the clothing. They've taken preppy styling and put their own spin on it, and I like the looks of the results. If I still wore ties on a regular basis, I would definitely pick up a few V V's. I recently noticed that Jos A Bank is ripping off the tie styles, so V V must be doing something right. I'm not sure about the fit of the long sleeve shirts or trousers, as I haven't tried them. I purchased a couple of their polos, which fit okay, but which also ran in the wash pretty quickly, so I wasn't impressed by the quality. I've seen their canvas dock pants in a local store, and they seem kind of insubstantial next to Bills (which, granted, cost more money).
Also, I find many of their items overpriced for what they are. In particular, they charge $40 for a pair of rubber flip flops, $75 for swimwear, and something like $85-$90 for a flipping canvas tote bag (you can get a similar bag from LL Bean or Lands' End for a lot less). I think the prices on the dress and sport shirts are a bit high, but not ridiculously so. The price of the polos seems in line with other "premium" brands such as Polo or Brooks Bros. The pricing on the ties also seems in line with what I'd expect.
Finally, I'm starting to get a bit turned off by their whole "we're having more fun than you" ad campaign. I really don't need to keep up with the continuing exploits of Shep and Ian, though I sincerely hope Ian's (or is it Shep's) band "makes it" one of these days. I thought it was clever at first, but it's starting to wear on me. On the other hand, I do give them credit for essentially saying f' it and starting their own business. They seem to be pretty successful to this point.
