wise or not, it is very enjoyable.
Wait...let me guess, you work at the IMF or the World Bank, right?
Anyhow, I am numbers guide and I am a homer to rankings. I am sure not all things can have a number but I think stuff that we talk about, shoes, suits, etc can have a score based on a lot of different things.
How about Rudals and the Suitsupply La Spalla or the Formosa vs. his Zegnas? Or his TF ties vs. Hober/ConradWu/Drakes?
Wouldn't the more relevant comparison (according to Stitchy's construct) be the SS vs. the Formosa rather than the Formosa vs. the Zegna? The discussion of the SS vs. Formosa was actually a case study in what Stitchy is talking about. One is three times the price of the other despite being quite similar. Yet Rudals strongly preferred the Formosa because for him certain details of the Formosa made it far more attractive and that non-objective preference persuaded him to hold off on the SS.
No, they're in different leagues. It goes back to the (now irrelevant) question: 2 SuSu or 1 Formosa? I'd go for one Formosa as well. Actually, I'd go for 4 Sartoria Partenopea suits, but it's not really a fair comparison, as the sale prices are absolutely ridiculous. It's the most underrated brand, and I'm hoping it'll stay that way for a while.
