It will probably happen gradually. Is there any in particular that you want to read? Many of them can be found by searching for the title or searching by author.

Really trying to find a comprehensive list of clothing manufacturers broken down by price-range quality and style. Think of it like a zagats for clothing lines/shoes?

Well, that could be a really useful thread, but I don't think anyone has been ambitious enough to put one of those together. Most threads are in the form of "my budget is $x - what should I consider?"

For what it is worth, Brooks is misplaced on your chart. They sell suits in a variety of different ranges and one can easily pay over $1,500 full retail for a higher line suit. Also, they do not do a true bespoke, but they do a MTM.

sounds like way too much effort.

Obviously this sort of thing should be on a Wiki! (The Wiki?) It'll be easier to read and easier to write (especially when there are disputes, like with BB, above). In fact, this list is all-encompassing enough that it could be the start of moving a lot of the forum to a Wiki...

Go ahead and mark it up. I'll contribute what little I've learned so far...

Clothing is far too nebulous to be broken down like this. If it wasn't, we wouldn't have much of a forum.
