    I'll say this.
    Suits are not like cars.
    Suits do not have emblems.
    Nobody knows what you are wearing.
    So it should come down to fit, construction, fabric, and most importantly your satisfaction.
    Now, let's make this thread a bit more interesting.

    You say that like it's a bad thing.

    I have no idea of what I've just said. [​IMG]

    Hello, Armando!
    That should give you a clue.

    Out of interest, is this thread merely a Claghorn experiment in choice architecture?

    The only objective conclusion we can reach is that Noodles is a brand whore. He's moved on to Formosa from Zegna, but the idea of the clothes is overwhelming the reality of them.

    But if it makes him happy and doesn't lead to penury and/or divorce, I can't begrudge him this.

    I WAS a brand whore. But what about now? I am buying stuff that are known here to be of good quality regardless of brand name, such as Sam Hober, Vanda, C&J, etc. I have not purchased any brand name stuff (Zegna, Brioni, Charvet, etc) from a department store for some time now. Even more, I just got three shirts that have no name value here in SF via Claghorn. You need to distinguish between a brand whore and a person who just wants the best stuff known at good value.

    The reason why I am holding off for a Formosa has been beaten to death so there is no need to bring it up again. IF the Formosa is not the best fit for me, then I am definitely getting the La Spalla from Suit Supply. Most likely a light grey.

    Noodles just made the name official I guess.

    Here is a thought. When noodles is buying well, he can use the Rudals account. When noodles is blowing it, he is relegated to The Noodles account for a week...

    Is the new account part of a plan to lower your number of posts and convince your wife you're not addicted to SF?
