Certainly, which is why I wait until they reach the $500 mark. Costume National suits fit me very well, are often available at that happy $500 mark. I just wanted to know how well-constructed they are in the grand scheme of things. i have one costume national suit. it's fused for sure but the construction has lasted through at least a year's worth of wear and tear and for the $650 i got it for off yoox i can't complain. to be honest, there's no article of clothing i expect to last me more than a few years. if the fit is perfect and it lasts me a handful of years, i'm happy with the construction. i would rather look up-to-the-minute than have something to bury me in.
