these look terrible
Assuming your PS suit is a solid dark navy suit, single breasted, 2 or 3 bttn, and fits decently well, there is no reason to get the brookease suit. Brookease is not great quality and there are a lot of better options out there for the same price...esp. if you keep an eye out for sales, deals, etc.
Target sells fantastic garment bags for very cheap. I like these: http://www.target.com/Quilted-Dress-..._qi_detaillink
great for traveling because they are so much lighter
Linen and cotton preferred. Preppy looking with bright colors. Red, White, Blue, Green, Yellow or some combo. Gingham is awesome...as are things like this: http://www.bensilver.com/Cotton-Pais...res,12263.html Not interested in solid or dark colors.

The BB supima sweaters are great, but the sizing is inconsistent. I purchased two v necks on the same day, in the same size, and they fit very differently...not sure why. Also, you should know that these sweaters are not very form fittings...more parachute fitting. I don't have any Toscano sweaters. I have both BB and Toscano Merino sweaters and the quality seems about the same. The merino BB sweaters are thicker and warmer, but Toscano fit me better.
You really can't go wrong with any of the above options. My vote would be for the Lobbs...no real reason though.
I read that WSJ article awhile back and watched some corresponding video with the author. I don't want to bash her, but she really didn't sound like she knew much about high quality suits. That being said, assuming the tailors who ranked the suits knew their stuff, it is somewhat impressive how well the SuitSupply suits graded out (and equally unimpressive how the Hart Schaffner Marx suits did). I am not in the market for a middle of the road suit right now, but when I...
