Unfortunately I don’t have the answer.
But that’s the purpose of a whole lot of web sites. For example, Angies List is a subscription web site that helps people find quality home improvement contractors (plumbers, painters, landscapers, and so forth).
Someone could do well to make a blog that helps people determine whether something is high quality. I think a good person for that would be the CEO of Costco. I was reading in a New York Times article about how he said a shirt was Nordstrom’s quality. The problem is most people can’t tell the difference up front. A little education would be really neat.
I’d love to see a web site where people explained why something was quality and gave examples. That would be worth reading.
