Hugo Boss

Hugo Boss is coming soon to the Natick Collection. I would have hoped they opened by now, but it appears they haven't - as the Hugo Boss website has no location there. They do have a store in Copley Plaza though.

Anyway, they make great men's clothes - and guys you don't have to spend a fortune to look nice.... Really!

Take this great looking Boss Orange Half-Zip Jersey Pullover:

It looks nice and comfortable, but not frumpy, and the price won't break the bank. If you are against orange it also comes in Black and Navy.

I know men hate shopping, but I don't understand it at all. How can one hate shopping? I think men hate the crowds in the malls - it's not that I like them, I just ignore them to get what I need to get done! But lucky for you this great shirt is available at Saks online.

Nice stuff, but expensive. Some things more than others. But as someone who is not really pushing the boundaries of fashion, I would be a regular there if I could afford it. I own two pairs of their jeans, and bought my tux there. Far better quality than B Rep (which for the most part is not well-made, overpriced rubbish.)

For example, I will not buy shirts at B Rep any longer because they don't fit me properly. Shirts only come in S, M, L, etc. For me, the neck on their M shirt is too small but the sleeves on the L shirt are too long. Result: I drop $80 to look like a fucking idiot.

If I need a nice shirt, I'd rather spend $120 at Thos. Pink inter alia to have something that fits properly. Why should I blow my hard-earned scratch on a shirt whose cuffs go down to my knuckles? If I'm going to do that, I may as well just wear white socks with some Bass shoes and call it a day.

Totally! Hugo Boss is on the expensive side, but this shirt was in the $100 range - so it's a 'bargain' for them.

As far as B Rep - I couldn't agree more! The quality used to be quite good - like 15 years ago. I had some pants and shirts from there years ago that lasted quite a while.

Now if I buy something, wear it once, wash it, and it looks like it's worth $2, not the $80 I paid! They are owned by the same company as Old Navy, and from what I can see the quality is barely a step above Old Navy, for triple the price.

Yeah, I pretty much don't go in there any more. And now that we have Nordstrom around here, I will probably change my shopping to even less frequent but better stuff. I may not always be at the same company where I can pretty much wear whatever I want to work...Good Lord willing...

The Nordstrom has a good men's dept. too - leaps and bounds above B Rep.
