Went to a store last night and after about 20 minutes was going to leave empty handed, when I decided to check through the "Just In" section. Right in front was a recent BB Golden Fleece suit in light grey Loro Piana 120s. For $12.99. I grabbed it without even trying it on; since it's tagged a 39R and I'm a 42R, I figured I would just put it up on here. When I got home it measures out closer to a 41R, and I think I can have the jacket and pants let out to make it work as...

I've never really bought a nice fitted shirt, what kind of measurements should I be looking for on myself before I go try them on. There is a local Brooks Brothers, but other than that I'm not too sure of other places to look Sounds good to me. Just don't wear a tie with no jacket, and add a...

For $100 new I think its a good bet and better than the Lauren or Alfani options. I am wearing a Michael Kors suit today in a grey pinstripe cashmere/wool blend, and I like its fit, although I did have it tailored a bit. FWIW, the one I have is made in Canada.

Can't speak to Last Call, but Off Fifth always has either a sale going on or an email coupon for 30% or 40% off one item. The current 40% off suits is (I think) as good as it gets if suits are what you need and they have one you like. You can sometimes get another 5-15% off by...

When on sale, this puts a lot of their stuff in my range. I think this is a good option, as long as they have something basic. The Off 5th here often has Isaia and HF suits that would probably come into your price range with the 40% off.

I would just throw out there that I recently ordered several BB ESF shirts in different fabrics. While the Supima ones are assembled in the USA, the cloth is imported, so there shouldn't be any real difference in the quality of the cloth. To add to that, I...
