I've been doing a lot of research on relatively cheap MTM places in NYC and narrowed my choices to Mysuit and Alton Lane. There were some good and bad reviews for both places. For example: Mysuit has great customer service and turnaround time, but fit depends heavily on the sales associate that takes your measurements. Alton Lane has a terrible turnaround time, but they have an accurate(?) method of taking measurements. I was wondering if you guys could help me...

Do you have a couple of decent pairs? $500 max will be tough. If these are your first suits, bite the bullet and go to BB and get something there. Do you even know...

Just curious, I always hear that the first two suits one buys should be navy and gray. what is your price point OP? What field? I don't have much corporate experience but I assume that a summer intern will not be expected to dress as well as regular staffers, and office folks in general don't wear very nice suits.

By Brooks suits, are you referring to the outlet mall quality? Is the 346 line still better than men's wearhouse?
