  • OT: Suit shopping...

    Where do you guys get your suits?



    I'm looking to pick a couple up. Probably 1 gray, and 1 black. Slim/modern fit. The gray one for interviews and more professional occasions, and the black for more formal occasions. I'd also like the black jacket to go with jeans.



    Price isn't a huge issue, but let's stay away from $2,000 Armani's (As much as I'd love to)



    I know some of you guys are snazzy dressers...help a brotha out.

      You're too fat right now. Wait until you lean up or it will hang on you like an old tent once you reach your target weight. Just sayin'. Love izzy.

        You can always hit Jos A Banks for inexpensive suits. I'm a big fan of Hugo Boss, though I don't know if it's out of your price range. There's a a Hugo outlet in Cleveland.



        Where ever you get it, find a good tailor via yelp and have it tailored. That's just as important as the suit itself.

                Haha, I'm really not. I'm back down to about 166, and have about 10 lbs to lose, max. I don't need to wear the suit for a while, so I'd have them take it in a hair more than I'd need now. Sort of a motivational suit.

                I'll look into it. I'd like to keep it around a grand for both, but I know that may be hard. I will DEFINITELY have it tailored. I have a charcoal one now that's pretty nice that I need to get tailored still...

                      I came in here to recommend jos a. They are having ridiculous deals almost all the time now and are good quality suits.

                        On second though, make sure you read the comments on that Indochino review.

                            Only buy super 100s wool or better unless it's a one-time-wear (for a special event).



                            Nordstrom is my go-to place, and I have my own tailor do the fitting. Joe Abboud and Hugo Boss are good starter suits.

                              Yeah, doesn't sound too good. To be honest, I'd feel a little iffy ordering a suit online without seeing how I looked in it anyway.
