    Having to pick from the brands I own, I guess...

    Omega
    Siemens
    Hermes ties
    Canon
    15yo Dalwhinnie
    Hennessy VSOP & Hennessy XO

    Most clothes companies don't produce consistently well made products.

    I know I'll get some heat for this but, J.Crew suit fits like a glove. Banana Republic shirts and Gap jeans.

    Actually, I must say my Barney's co-op wool dress pants that I bought 3 years ago and wear twice a week have held up amazingly. They still look new.

    So I'll say Barney's co-op, JCrew, Allen Edmonds and Columbia Crest Two-Vines cab/merlot!

    I don't have many, but all of my Borrelli pieces are great.

    I'd agree with this - I'm generally a huge fan of Borrelli.

    weren't you earlier saying you were disappointed with the Made in China RLPL cashmere sweaters?
    I don't know about sho'nuff ... but I was ... especially after being told by the salesman that it was made in Italy ... his way of justifying the price.
