    This is a very interesting thread. Not only has it reminded me of some brands I forgot in my own list that I've now edited in, it also has something slightly voyeuristic about it! [​IMG]

    Quite fascinating to peek into somebody else's wardrobe like this. And very different from seeing what someone is wearing on a given day. Good thread!

    This is an interesting thread, as a picture emerges from each list of labels.

    I like Norcal's idea of 'in order of frequency' so:

    Suits - Barbera, Castangia, Anderson & Sheppard, Isaia, Sartorio by Attolini
    Sportcoats - Barbera, Castangia, Sartoria Attolini, Isaia, Boglioli, Zegna
    Trousers - Barbera, Oxxford, Valentini, Sartorio by Attolini
    Shirts - Borrelli, H&K, Bergdorf Private Label, Lorenzini, Charvet, M. Bardelli Milano, Jantzen
    Knit shirts and polos - American Apparel, Cucinelli, Buttondown Private Label
    T-shirts - American Apparel, Hanes
    Jeans - Paper Denim & Cloth (their older stuff,) Levi's, Jake Agave, Earnest Sewn
    Outerwear - Barbera, Belstaff, Barbour, Kiton, Dunhill, Domenico Vacca
    Overcoat/Raincoat - Burberry
    Dress shoes - Vass, Edward Green, Grenson Masterpieces, Lobb, Santoni, Ferragamo Handmades
    Casual shoes - Paraboot, Converse, Varvatos, Ferragamo
    Ties - Talbott, Bergdorf Private Label, Barney's Private Label, Wilkes Bashford Private Label, Bullock & Jones Private Label, Breur, Nicky, Charles Hill, Ike Behar, Audrey Buckner, Carlo Franco, FIH, Isaia, Loro Piana, and (1) Kenneth Cole
    Socks - mostly Pantherella
    Belts - Trafalgar, Longhi
    Watches - Stowa, Glycine

    Barbera outweighs every other label, making up at least 50% of my tailored clothing and outerwear. The above list is what I've settled on after 6 years of trying just about every label on the market (95% of the clothes I wore during that period I've since sold. )
