I don't think I wear things enough to be able to comment on long term quality.

Prices of everything just seemed to get ridiculous. A 3.5k CCP leather jacket seems cheap by today's standards. I don't pay much attention to it anymore, nor can afford it.

I wear mostly Riess, COS, Whistles, Neuw Jeans, Eton Shirts, TM Lewin stuff plus whatever I had from years gone by or whatever 'high fashion' stuff is reasonable priced in the sales etc. Happy with what I'm wearing atm

Reiss ain’t too bad, just a bit too City boy for me. Plenty of mid price places decent quality and like bill said just watch sales

I mostly tend to buy their knitwear, never had problems with anything I've ever bought but I guess it's not all equal.

Reiss ain't too bad, even with designer brands quality can be hit and miss. If we're being brutally honest the difference in price doesn't equate with the difference in quality.

I don't even do brands anymore. If it's made in Portugal and made from locally sourced materials (or countries renowned for great materials), i'm basically happy.

Think I posted about looking for a 50s/60s college jacket / bomber. Ending up getting this from a small Italian brand called 'Connection'(my jacket, their styling).



Goat suede, made to order in Italy (hand cut patterns, custom colours available). Their range wont be to everyone's style but I would recommend them and top service. Gave very detailed measurements, included a nice garment bag, hand written tag and a note from the owner.
