I'm a young gentleman looking to buy a new suit. I want to look stylish yet have unmatched quality. I know that Brioni is the obvious choice but Tom Ford seems to be more young and trendy. What do you guys think?

If money is no option why not use a good in person mtm or go bespoke. Just make sure to pick the right person and system to work in.

This is your third 'A vs B, money no object' post. The brands you talk about have a similar level of quality, there is no real value to any discussion of construction, materials etc - it all comes down to you trying them on with someone who can guide you and deciding what you prefer.

Based on your previous posts, you seem to want a TF but are after some reassurance that it is the way to go. As already mentioned, the quality is very good, it's a fit and name drop after that. The base A (I have one) is great if you have an athletic build. For the base A, I would say you would want a 8" -10" drop to wear this well and not an overly thick thigh, though some may disagree. The quality is definitely top notch but if you pay retail it is overpriced. If you are .. less athletically built, try the B. As other's already mentioned. If you'r paying full retail, then your best bet would be bespoke, which you can get for a TF MSRP.

If money is no object, buy both and afterwards let us know which one you prefer.

You sound very indecisive to me as well as being someone who is conceited.

In the absence of a photograph it is quite impossible to determine what is right: You also make no reference for the circumstances in which this might be worn. That makes a huge difference. A conservative profession versus a wedding versus some one in marketing and so on and so forth.

Rather than pursuing these repetitive threads you would be better just getting what you like. No one can truly answer your questions on the scant information you give.

Maybe you are even a time waster.
