I would go as far as to say that their workmanship gives Attolini, Kiton and Co. a good run for their money. On the otherhand, stylewise, wearing Oxxford will make you look like a congressman. Do you really want that? Here than is my blanket opinion of all the brands (of suits) popular or popularly discussed on the forum: If you are under 35, or a young 40, and are not stuck in some I-banking money laundering scheme and are not a professional classical musician, wear suits by Gucci, Helmut Lang, Costume National, Jil Sander, Martin Margiela, Dries van Noten. Live a little. Your suits are for fun, not for work. And "timeless" is for when you are over 50, have let your body go, and can't really be bothered anymore. If your profession requires you to dress conservatively, wear as much Italian suiting as possible, then English, and lastly, American. Wearing an Oxxford suit will age you 20 years immediately, and not in a way that says that you have drank life to the fullest. Finally, don't let your spending on clothing get in the way of travel, good food, good family, etc., etc... I love good gear as much as anyone. But enough is enough.
