U will notice the general disdain by the lack of comments from long time members. Personally, I know it cost u $400, but technically it was a $525 purchase. To much, I have seen them at Macys for $300 and change near clearance time. I own a pair myself, and while I do aspire for better quality in the future, $300 and change was a fair price in the meantime. I do like the cut of the suits though, so enjoy regardless.
