Some suit makers prefer not to say how much they charge.

You're going about this the wrong way. Look who is on the list.

That list is from 2004. Perhaps there have been some changes in the industry since then.

It's bad research. Most of the names on that list are RTW/MTM brands sold in New York City.

EDIT: I was wrong. Less than half are RTW/MTM. Still, they've left out a lot of high-priced makers, which is a dubious distinction anyway.

Nothing stops anyone from paying his tailor more than what the tailor asks.

So, if you really want to lord it over other people, drop a cool $100K on your Tom Ford and say, "Keep the change, Tommy."

For more big-timer lessons, tune into this thread next week.

I think Arnold Brant gets credit for Bill O'Reilly's suits.
