I did make lots of suggestions that were a fair bit cheaper, LOLlol Harry Rosen has a Dolce and Gabbana shirt for $775, are you kidding me lmao
No need to spend $700 on a shirt. There is quality and there is brand. A good shirt can be had for <$300. Anything more and you are paying for the logo/brand.Indeed... I genuinely don't mind spending extra for quality, but not that much extra. For $700, I expect the shirt to stop a bullet lol
I had a similar experience with Boss. I had a shirt that literally fell apart, and the buttons on a coat fell off the first season it was worn. Ralph Lauren is ok but I always try their shirts on first - I once bought one whose sleeves were ridiculously short for the size. Zegna is good, Strellson, Etro - I had a Valentino suit that I really loved. Ferragamo has great belts (I once bought one at Harry Rosen and they pretended to having cut it to my size but I had to do it myself later - obviously, they just didn't want me to be able to return the belt! That was a rather questionable practice...). But in general, I find that quality has been dropping for years. Cole Haan is a good example; what they were making in the early 1990s was much better than the crap they sell now.Clothing is all over the map when it comes to quality. Hign-end doesn't always mean quality. I have had excellent luck with Ralph Lauren, Strauss, Victorinox, Zegna, Bugatti, Etro, Varvatos. And for sunglasses, Ray-Ban's with scratch-resistant. lenses, they will last 10 years or more if you take care of them.
I had bad luck with Cole Haan, the shoes are expensive and garbage quality. The shoes didn't last a year. I got about 6 months out of them. $300 black Hugo Boss pants didn't last long, I got a cheap pair from Mark's that have held up better! Not a fan of Boss suits either. My Gucci belt broke after a few months of wearing it, they replaced it at the store. but still should have lasted longer than that. I barely wore it!!.
