Also, if everybody stops buying them, sellers would be forced to significantly lower their prices and I'd buy them all myself.

Does anybody know of any decent thrifting opportunities in San Diego County (Ideally North County). From what I've seen there isn't much to write home about; probably because nobody in Southern California likes to wear anything outside of jeans, shorts and t-shirts.
I keep a few backup ties at the office. If that wasn't an option I'd probably just tough it out (and possibly go buy a new one on my lunch break.)
Quite an amazing transformation from what I've seen. I'm aspiring to do the same with my wardrobe but it's been slow going on my limited budget. I shall get there, though...

Fantastic, thank you! I'll definitely have to do some browsing later.

Unfortunately, "slim fit" doesn't always = smaller sizes. I have the same issue: I wear a 14.5-33 and many retailers don't care many of these, if any at all. Slim fit IS generally a requirement though, as I'm quite slender. On an off note, are there really that many...
As far as suit tips in general, use the search function and you should find plenty of great advice. If you want something versatile, go with solid navy or charcoal. I'm about 5'7'' - 5'8'' and I greatly prefer 2 button to 3 button. Much of this seems to be preference. Admittedly, JAB is not a 'high end' brand by any means, but I do have one suit from them and it's not as terrible as many people on the forums will profess. It's not great, but it's also not horrible....
