    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.

    That's the only reason why I buy some boss gear. I like their styling and cuts. For the prices they charge the quality does not match.

    I own several shirt/pants from Hugo - I actually paid over $50 for their shit.

    Hence, I had to pay over $100 for alterations - waist suppression, shortening the jacket - shit the arms are still too big. I thought I was getting a deal at $250 - I'm so wrong.

    i have 3 pairs of Hugo boss pants that hold a crease for ohhhhh.....a good 3-4 hours maybe.

    Junk, glad i stopped at 3 pairs.

    I bought them because they really looked great when i first put them on (pre style forum days) and they were much slimmer then most other pants i tried, but they really didnt hold up well at all.

    Is Bose really that bad? I'm no audiophile but I'm pretty happy with my sound system, although it did cost a pretty penny at the time. Any chance for a quick PM to talk about it? (I'm not looking to be flatly told it sucks. I think what i've got is good and I like it, I'm just curious why some people hate Bose)

    Bose makes okay speaker, but for the prices they charging it's way too expensive. Very good marketing company that makes visually attractive products.

    Their sound is typically flat and hallow due to its form factor. Quality of speaker depends a lot on quality of the driver, size of driver, cabin, etc. In the case of bose, it tries to use clever sound channel processing within its tiny frame to imitate higher quality speaker sound.
