    x2 (lined to the knee).

    Would never buy their suiting, but the trousers are decent if bought on deep discount.

    Way better than Brooks Brothers at the exact same pricing tier. The fabrics are just nicer/softer, and the fit is a more "tailored" fit without being "too skinny" (i.e., perfect for the slightly fit to athletic type of body)

    I would put Hugo Boss in the "Satisfactory" tier.

    Unless, we essentially are saying that to be in "Satisfactory" or above, you HAVE to be at LEAST half-canvassed....

    If that's the case, then there are several brands currently in that category that need to get pushed lower.....anyone else agree that we should do this methodology? It seems to make sense to me.

    No.

    And you answer had nothing to do with my question.

    I guess I was confused by you quoting my question then.

    The HB debate has run long and hard on this forum. It is generally agreed that they are junk and should be avoided thus their ranking an mediocre. Some don't agree but the general consensus is that and it is not about to change unless HB starts doing something very different.

    Hat about Camoshita, the Japanese brand? I've heard good takings about it, but couldn't find too much about it on SF.

    Etro shouldn't be so low on the list; they're half canvassed and made by Lardini. They're miles ahead of Boss.

    Also, why was Lanvin removed? Their suits are partially hand made.

    Also im not sure Isaia, Partenopea and D'avenza should be in the same league as Brioni, Kiton, and attolini. They are great suits but i just don't think they stack up against the others in the category. J press and Etro should be at least above Charles Trywitt

    Lanvin is made by Caruso (same Caruso tag as RLBL).

    I saw a tuxedo with a Zegna tag same as dunhill, Zegna, Tom Ford, Gucci. Maybe they are like Gucci and use diff makers?
