Quality is subjective, isn’t it?

This is precisely the reason one goes to any “boutique” or “high-end” department store where brand names and labels are the name of the game. Almost every major department store has basically the same brands under different umbrellas, so what are these retailers bringing to the table? More importantly, how much is it costing you? Pricewise, name brand labels cost about 30% more for the same fabrics and workmanship, and that’s just for off the rack garments. The lack of passion, lack of knowledge and lack of caring about the details can be stupefying.
