Armani (and others) suit quality - Page 2

post #16 of 21
Also Armani Collezioni suits are fused, I would not worry about bubbling. For fused suit to bubble, I would like to imagin the suit needs to go through many dry cleans. Lets say an Armani suit will bubble after 10 dry clean, and you dry clean once in a year. This will give you at least 10 yrs in suit. I am willing to bet you will get rid of your suit not because the suit bubbled but because suit's style and fit does not suit you.

The store in my town pushes Armani collezioni as if it were god's gift to the earth, charging $1695 for a wool suit, $2495 for a MTM cashmere sportcoat. I like the Armani suit I have because of its fit, as many posters have noted. But one is enough. After a year or so of thrashing about in ignorance, I educated myself about suits, far from the reaches of salespeople, then returned to that store with new eyes and a new set of priorities. I left the store with nothing. I started shopping elsewhere.

i have always liked giorgio armani clothing..i discovered italian design through him.i think he has great taste and often gorgious styling. however,he may be more popular here in america than in italy where i have travelled extensively.. i now find that his ties, though beautiful, don't knot well..my suits and sport jackets i have learned are not of the quality warranted by their price.. nevertheless if his designs appeal to you aesthetically and you shop astutely, go for it..i would call any man dressed in armani well-dressed..

WELL UMM I always thought that armani was a good suit also thats all i heard that the famous people where wearing,  was giorgio armani,  on the other hand thoe umm i wouldnt buy one  i am a fan of double breasted suits  and the best ones i have ever seen are made by people such as gieves and hawkes, or canali or oxxford or brioni, now  brioni and oxxford suits are not for the average joe because they use the finest materials money can buy,  and they are full canvas construction because they are bespoke and the same goes for gieves and hawkes, example brioni starts at 5,000 and can go up to 15,000 depending on the fabric seletion and the style, if your like a ceo or a top cfo i would suggest a brioni made out of dupioni silk in double breasted, to have one made thoe their about 6,000 dollars thoe but it will last for years to come, in like a nice solid navy color,  but i would not purchase the armani thoe umm but if you cant afford a brioni i would suggest a canali or zegna there about a category 5 suit and get something in like a shiny 150s or 160s wool if you can sir  if youd like to you could like cordonate an armani tie in a solid color with a brioni suit, and maybe a zanella shirt thats very italian, and a pair of magli loafers.

Well see heres the problem you also face as well ok, at one time i am going to say prolly the late 80s and early 1990s era, armani had some of the best well cut double breasted and single breasted suits money could buy for an off the rack suit, it kind of reminds me what the early version of the mercedes benz s class used to look like, but ok today its a diffrent time era and a diffrent world now days, now day they arent cut the classic way anymore like they used to be, and most of the time they are fused when you purchase its a great name, and it some cases they are prolly made out of the best wool in the world and you just would not know that by looking at it, but but a rolex is like a mercedes benz s class nice to look at for the name, but not exactly the best and highest quality luxury good there is in the world, meanwhile if you do want the best and your willing to pay for the top quality, then OXXFORD would be your best bet they arent fused at all they start at about 4000 dollars and can go much higher then that they are all done by hand, they are the best quality in the world, and they can last you 20 years or more they always use a full canvas front that is put in by hand, it would be the same with just as if you were buying a patek phillipe or a rolls royce yes it does cost more but in the very end its all worth it because of the best quality diffrence, also another great italian suit maker is Brioni they are all done by hand as well, they start out about the same around 4000 dollars and can go much higher in price from their, but its up to you its your money and you get what you pay for its that simple but yes it is true ARMANI suits arent the best for quality that is true i am afraid they have a good name thats global, just not the best reputation for quality, they do on their suits typically about half or 3 quarters hand made quality i would say, but the whole thing is not bespoke tailored, also i wouldnt buy off the rack if you want a suit to fit well there is a bit of diffrence in that as well i am afraid, well good luck to ya its your money and your own decision.
