    Hello,

    I was wondering if you all had any experience with the Saks Private Label. I was particularly interested in their dress shirts. My biggest concern is quality more than fit as I do have a trusted tailor that I use frequently for alterations.

    How does it compare in terms of quality to other bigger designers such as Burberry, Faconnable and, dare I say, Hugo Boss?

    Thanks much!

    I like em, and they're relatively cheap. They say "made in Italy"

    Saks is a competitor of my employer. They have started putting a lot of floor space devoted to their private label. I am willing to be the profit margin is huge. And they control the supply chain, no more dealing with nasty designer vendors.
    As for the shirts : I thought the dress shirts all ran big, and were billowy, but I am guessing that cut is more their target audience though....

    They're very nice, but are a fuller American cut since they were made for Saks. If the fuller style suits you, they're a bargain at $459.99!

    Yeah, I went in to try the shirts on and they were cut rather generously. The fabrics were very nice and appeared to be of good quality.

    I picked up a couple alligator private label pieces, actually thought the quality was great. However, the sales person I worked with did not know the maker.

    Anyone have any other thoughts on this label, i was pleasantly surprised.

    I have some of their house label trousers, and the fit is great. They're made in China though, just like the Alligators.

    I had a chance to quickly peruse the Saks house label items at Saks.

    They have lots of nice stuff.

    Tons of cashmere sweaters in all the stylish/popular designs.

    I was most surprised that jackets/sportscoats were made by Isaia. These retail for just under $1K.
