Someone should post comparison photos of the fit and construction of a crappy $150 suit, a decent $500 suit, a decent $1000 suit and great $1000-$1500 suit, and a butter $4000 bespoke piece (throw in rip offs in any price range at their will too) That would help alot of people (like me) about to splurge on suits sleep well at nightOriginally Posted by Jodum5
