Why would so many celebrities purchase AB stuff if the general opinion is that a decent RTW suit is better? I have seen one of these suits up close and agree with this, but I am still just shocked at how well they are doing. Is good marketing really that important that you can pass off a mediocre product as a great one?
I see your point - and was actually wondering the same thing.
My guess is celebrities, athletes and the Scott Disick's of the world get higher quality workmanship, better fabrics and more preliminary fittings. I think their A&B experience (via their agent or whomever) is a little more involved, expensive and handled with better care vs. Joe Schmo from the suburbs.
Just a guess. Because I too have seen athletes and other well known individuals wearing an A&B suit that seemed to fit them well and be above average in construction. Yet the reviews on here almost uniformly suggest it's cheap, ill-fitting junk.
I'm not sure how it can be both, even if it is extremely hit or miss.
