Generally, I was fairly informed about quality clothing and very rarely have made "mistakes". Pre SF, I preferred Versace Classic suits mainly because they fit me exceptionally well and the garment is Zegna, albeit not the best quality for the price. Since the forum though I am more confident in trying other brands that I new nothing or very little of (i.e. Pal Zileri, Corneliani, etc). For the record, I had been visiting the forum for a while before I finally joined... Love it.
