The Luxury Institute surveyed 1,503 consumers with a minimum household annual income of $150,000 about leading luxury fashion brands for men. Brands were ranked by quality, exclusivity, social status and self-enhancement. Then they were ranked overall, forming the Luxury Brand Status Index (LBSI). The survey also measured three key “outcome” metrics, for comparison to the LBSI: perceived price worthiness, consumers’ willingness to recommend the brand and consumers’ next-purchase preference. It also collected data about brand familiarity and past purchases.
