Yeah, that's the impression I got from reading this thread, but whenever I don't feel like spending an hour looking through suit labels, and instead just go by the buttons, the only ones I pull out are always cheap sportcoats from Old Navy, Izod, Mossimo, etc. I mean I know the schmancy stuff must be sewn on the thighs of heavenly virgins and whatnot, but I wonder: if everybody wants it, and Target's house brand can do it by machine, why doesn't, say, Oxxford?
Today: 1st Brioni tie. Pure heavenly wonder. Coming apart at the small end, must sew back together.
