Same quality category? Are you kidding? A BB 346 maybe. I disagree. My MV has held up well and looks good for the $300 tag. A BB 1818 is a better suit, but not so much so that a MV is more like a 346. That is my opinion, clearly others disagree. In the end, having purchased both, I like the 1818 better, but I think much of that is because I paid more and it fits slightly better. I happily wear both. Neither is a Mercedes or a Civic. To the OP: If you have the time and money, a Polo by Corneliani may pop up here on B&S, and that would be my first recommendation. If not, I think you'll be happy with the lower priced MV for occasional wear. My $.02.
