Thanks for the advice guys, I really appreciate it.
If Paul Stuart is having a sale, will it be listed on their website? I'd be alright with waiting another week or two to pull the trigger, but I've got a feeling they'll be saving the sales for after Christmas. I'll try on the Milano Brooks Brothers suits for sure, but from what I can tell right now the prices aren't really too far apart: $998 for a Milano 1818 suit from Brooks Brothers, half-canvassed, or $1284 for the Paul Stuart standard wool suit, fully canvassed. Are there noteworthy construction differences between the two? I know the PS is fully canvassed, but I'm really not sure how valuable that is to me. Will one be more expensive to tailor? Is one made of a superior material?
Still go for the Milano? You've all got more experience than I do. And thanks again, I'd be lost without this place.
EDIT: Also, and if this isn't the correct place for this question to be asked I apologize, but am I correct in assuming that at my price point I should be alright with most any dress shirt as long as I get it taken in to fit me properly?
Even if there is no sale at BB, can you sign up for the corporate card before to get 15% off? Also, if you try the Milano and find it too slim/shoulders too soft, you may want to consider Fitzgerald, which has more structured shoulders.
