    I'm regretting my Hugo Boss Pasolini suit purchase. I just got it back from the tailor and I noticed the material is shoddy. Hell, my ebay suit - M Valentino is 10 times better and the Banana Republic stuff is also better. Well, I paid $250 and spent another $100 on alterations - I don't think the suit is worth more than $150.

    I bought the same suit from Nordstrom. It's not awful, but not CLOSE to what they charge retail for.

    Definitely my most expensive mistake.

    I recently purchased a Burberry Bond street - it fits great - no alterations on the jacket. I picked it up at a Barney's outlet for $280. I'm hoping my Hickey suit would be just as good.

    How did Hugo Boss become THE coveted suit brand for young men who know nothing about suits? It's effing marketing genius.

    The first time I ever heard of Boss was from Rocky IV, when Apollo Creed's corner crew comes out wearing Boss sweatshirts. I wanted one of those sweatshirts really bad.

    It's the name. Which would you rather own if you were an uninformed suit buyer. Hickey Freeman or Hugo Boss.

    well, the only good thing about hugo boss is when a girl ask me what kind of suit I'm wearing and I say boss - she creams in her pants for some odd reason.

    I prefer plain old wet. If there's cream she needs to go to the clinic.

    Hogo Boss bashing to gynaecology advice in 13 posts. That is impressive. [​IMG]

    This is hilarious. It seems we've all made the same mistake. Hugo boss quality is shoddy all the way down the line, from suits to shirts etc. I hear the Baldessarini line is quite a bit better, but have no personal experience with it.

    I got a Hugo Boss shirt today. Two-ply, french cuffs.

    I really hope it's worth the $3.99 I paid for it...

    BOSS does have some GREAT cuts tho...
    The Jam/Sharp combo is one of my favorites!
    I own one Passolini, and I can't say I liked the fit..

    The HUGO *red* label (semi canvassed) is where you want to be, if you want the 'Yeah, I'm wearing a BOSS suit" effect on women.. (I think thats a myth haha)

    I had a red label shirt that fit great, but literally fell apart on me after a few wearings.
