Buy-one get-one-free generally indicates low quality. Brand names don't mean quality (and CK is the only brand cited above that sometimes is good quality). It's debatable whether Men's Wearhouse sells any high-quality clothing.TM Lewin often has good prices on quality shirts.Lands' End's products are fairly ordinary, but it has an unusually wide range of fits for pants.
Besides the shape pointers, stick to footwear that is dark-colored and (if possible) matte.
This service, er, could be your best friend. At the very least, stop buying from Men's Wearhouse and use more respectable retailers such as T.M. Lewin and (for at least pants) Lands' End. Florsheim might be adequate for dress shoes, if the right size (unknown) is available. Also, don't buy blends with synthetics, except maybe for sportswear.
Those questions are too broad. There are many types of wool, all silks are not the same, and some blends have different percentages. But if price happens to be about cleaning, again, there shouldn't be any difference.
1TimeForumUser? Regardless, no, a wool/silk suit should not require care any different from a pure wool suit.
It's arguably "very hard" to find athletic-cut suits in stores outside of big cities. They're available via the web, though. Also, Dior Homme sells some suits that are at least drop 10. Maybe a young guy expects to wear a suit as is (as though it's supposed to fit like that), but the market isn't going to cater to incorrect beliefs when there's hardly any profit to be had. Nobody disagrees that it's tough for major v-shapes or that a line catering to such men would be a...
It's probably because 1) even if the drop is right, other alterations almost surely will need to be made, 2) the waist can be taken in without difficulty for let's say 97% of men, and 3) suit separates are a workaround for much of that 3%. Also, no one really knows how much use for suits men with very large drops tend to have, and some of them would look odd in suiting that emphasizes a small waist. The idea would be more much valid if athletic cuts (drop of 8" or more)...
The other thread addressed most of that. To the bonus question, corduroys or anything heavier than typical jeans would look off with summery-looking footwear like that.
Based on that, options are endless [edit: woops]. Dress shoes maybe? No pairs were listed. Again, without "more information about the items purchased already," who knows - maybe they are so good that there is no reason to expand, other than a few more dress shirts.
They're more than good enough for a student. Also, a watch isn't recommended, for that traditionally is not part of formal wear.
