Giorgio Armani couture>black label>le collezioni>emporio/jeans>A/X

Couture is his signature line, its the line that gives the brand its prestige. Armani controls this line directly so the quality should be there. BTW anybody know if Armani contracts their le collezioni suits or are they made in house?

Emporio is more youth oriented and so is Jeans, which is more urbanwear. As far as I know Armani Jeans is not sold in Canada but I could be wrong. I got mine in Paris. Its also licensed out to somethig SPA (cant remember the first part). But they make a lot of clothes for other companies such as Dolce, versace etc.. as well.
A/X is contracted out to some Hong Kong company.

So I guess basically the higher end lines are quality controlled by Armani. For the lower end lines, they just license out the name to provide prestige to the garmet and make an excuse for markups. Thats the difference.

I make more than what 95% of people in this site makes.
Try a six-figure salary that starts with a "3" (that would be annually)

Seriously- I TRIED to ignore him. KKF is like herpes, you keep scratching in an attempt to get temporary relief, but two weeks later he comes raging back more annoying and infuriating as ever.

Giorgio is more high-end/luxurious/better whatever then Emporio

Lexus is a luxury Toyota
Acura is a luxury Honda

there are different lines among them..A/X is cheaper to compare with Gio` .. just like D&G and DOLCE because A/X aim young folks and others aim for higher class

A/X is Armani in name only

he has no creative contact with it - just his name appears on the label

its a licensed out brand
