Hey, I'm no expert, but I did spend a considerable amount of time trying suits. Here are my impressions: - decent construction. It has a partial canvas so it's somewhere between a Boss and a Canali. - the Shapes line seems to have great fabric, at least 120s if not 150s. The fabric has a slight sheen to it, which is nice since mine is a charcoal-slate grey suit and would be very dull otherwise. - the fit is a little fuller than I would like (I like the fit of an Armani), although not as conservative as a Canali. I plan on having the waist taken in a little. - shoulders are not as natural as I would like; there is a decent amount of padding. - I paid $415 for mine in New York. The store was having a moving sale and was clearing out their inventory. They also had Ferres for $250 (crappy fabric and average construction), Canali and Armani for $600. Overall, I was very happy with what I got for the money.
