You don't really hear them mentioned around here, do you? That should provide a clue.

This got me to thinking the other day about ultra high end brands or rather do the ultra rich buy the same brands as we talk about here or is there a whole other level of even higher quality that doesn't even get talked about because it's so expensive. More or less do the ultra rich scoff at RLPL or G&G shoes type of thoughts.

Rlpl is up there I thought. I wonder if the real rich just go bespoke or is there some brand I ,a commoner, has never heard of and probably can not ever afford.

I am into acoustic guitars. When I was looking the right one, I saw guitars that were $10,000+. The deeper I went into my search, the guitars were more specialized and expensive.

Yeah I imagine ultra rick just go 100% bespoke with ultra high end name brands that probably are poorly made. Yeah guitars can be insane depending how much hand work/ abalone/ type of wood/etc. that it's made with.

You must be in Tyson's Galleria.

He's got a gallery now, who knew?

Lol. I hope you didn't think Mike Tyson Mr. Cleav! Haha

Yup. Guitars are insane. But the rule is that you buy what sounds beautiful to your ears.

Hence "not really", not "never". And I do remember reading that thread back then. Not really the kind of thing that's going to appeal to folks around these parts.

Their store was across from Zegnas and I walked in there without realizing that their suits are $6,000+

The mall on Memorial Day? You're a braver man than I, Noodles. As to the ultra-rich, they mostly fall into the high-end designer label category. At least the ones I know do.

Seems like they're only legit with outerwear and leather per the thread. But at the same time their suits are somewhat comparable to Brioni.

I first started being aware of pocket squares when I encountered a guy who had the most absurd, enormous silks spilling out of his breast pocket. Then 20 years passed, as the idea of attempting it myself germinated in my mind.

Naw, we did all the shopping a week ago. But the Mrs. missed some stuff so we'll do a quick drive by.

I know a few very rich people, and I would say their knowledge and interest varies as much as anyone's: they are just as likely to buy the brand they see on Sloane Street as they are to take an interest in the finer points.

^^ this ^^

on average rich people dont care any more about clothing than we do. and those that do probably do buy similar stuff to what we do, just more of it, more at retail and more bespoke/MTM/ktion 50.....
