Fit/Quality of Thick as Thieves vs. Ralph Lauren Blue Label

This may come across as an odd question (because I may be trying to compare apples to oranges), but would a Thick as Thieves suit be on par with the fit/quality of a Ralph Lauren Blue Label?

While I'm not a 20-year old guy, I'm certainly not adverse to a "fashion-forward" suit, but (properly fitted) will it have a similar overall look of quality as, say, a Ralph Lauren Blue Label? Or is it unrealistic given their respective price points?

Is it only 20-year olds that wear TaT suits?

Any thoughts are welcome.

Well one you get your measurements right with TaT, I don't see why it wouldn't tend to fit better than a Polo since it's OTR.

Quality wise, haven't seen a TaT in person.

I own a black house cut thick as theives suit, Jason is really a stand up guy, very nice and easy to work with. he has a good idea of a lot of fashion houses fits (for me I know a 38 r paul smith fits me perfect off the rack) He replicated that fit with out me giving him a single measurement.

I don't have much interest in his conservative cut, but I really enjoy the house cut I bought from him. The price was very fair too.

I avoid anything from Ralph that isnt black or purple label (black label is a better fit for my body) and Purple lable has some amazing ties. YMMV on anything else from Ralph.

I do say apples to oranges though.

The Polo Bradford model isn't baggy at all.
