Quote:Go to Brooks Brothers at the Mall at Chestnut Hill, which is off of Route 9 in Newton (a burb of Boston). Â There will be (or should be -- it was there last week) in a 42R a Golden Fleece suit for $498 (see if he'd be willing to extend you the Make a Wish discount, or a Friends and Family discount, which you just missed -- they are pretty nice there). Â It is a 2 button with a nice button stance -- not super "high" but on the modern side of classic IMO. Â It is single vent, but you should worry about other things than a vent for your first suit. Â It is a very dark navy herringbone, with fine pinstripes in rust and light blue. Â The pinstripes are hard to pick up, but the herringbone part is what makes it special. If you want to call to see if it's still there, go ahead. Â Ask them to check not only the island racks, but also the back left wall -- they had basically put eight or nine of these specific suits on a wall rack, as opposed to the island rack. Â All sorts of sizes in there, ranging from 40 to 48. The Brooks Brothers route here is a good way to go because you won't have to pay for the tailoring if you do it in shop. Â That knocks about 70 bucks off the cost of the suit right there.
