    I would like to gather your expertise in buying quality clothes and put together sort of price-reference list. I am looking only into manufacturers of skinny cinched waist suits. I realize that each manufacturer has different lines in different price category, so the list might get longer. The purpose is to get a ballpark idea for the Average-Fare-Bargain price points for high quality suits. I appreciate your input gentlemen.

    Zegna

    Corneliani

    Canali

    Isaia

    Please add manufacturers as list grows (hopefully).

    Thank you.

    Corneliani: Solids can be found for $575 with some effort. Pinstripes and patterns can often be found for less than $500, sometimes even less than $400. STP is the most consistent source, with most Corneliani suits starting off around $800 before discount/coupon code. EBay, though, can be a source of bargains, as I've seen NWT Corneliani pinstripes sell for less than $200. (I'm talking about the mainline stuff, but, oddly, the lesser lines don't seem to sell for much less. Marshalls offers the Trend and CC lines for $399.)

    Picked up a solid charcoal 120s mainline Corneliani for a bit more than $400 shipped from STP the other day. Retail was about $1500.
