What's the bet a shorter thread would be "Brands that represent quality above all else".

Great idea.

I'll give you credit.

BOSE (Buy other sound equipment, though their headphones get decent reviews surprisingly enough)
Rolex (Only recently have they evolved into the watch they should be at their price point and even that is questionable when compared to alternatives)
Montblanc (LE stuff is nice, but Meisterstuck line is only mediocre when compared to others)
Aurora (Raised prices considerably in the hopes to boost prestige)
Ferragamo (though have heard the tramezza line is ok)
Armani
Hugo Boss
"High end" Chain Restaurants (Think PF Changs)
Johnston and Murphy (Every pair I owned fell apart in less than a year)
Louis Vuitton (Spendy, reportedly made in china for some of their line, and "played out")
Burberry
Coach (many gripe about their quality decline and tacky styles, personally I find them ok given their price compared to the competition and their more traditional stuff ok, but unless one pays alot more there aren't many options)
Florsheim (shadow of its former self, but still better than most of the other bargain shoe companies out there)
Tiffany (overpriced everything)
Brand Malls (Simon)
Cole Haan
JCrew
Banana Republic
Nordstrom
Sony
Mercedes

The interesting point is that seemingly every brand which gets big slips when it comes to something

I am sure I can think of more...
