How Much For a New Polo Suit?

post #1 of 89
Thread Starter 
How much would you or have you paid for the perfect Polo (Corneliani) suit? By perfect I mean staple colors/striped, side vented and no alterations needed except hemming the pants.

I bought a charcoal Polo 90% wool/10% cashmere in mint condition and needed hemming and sleeve shortening (every suit does, for me) for $150. I would have paid a few bucks more because PRL fits me so well and is so versatile (good for interviews/weddings/everything I use a suit for).

Ignoring the post above, because it's not what you're asking, my limit would be $700, or 50% of retail.

I've paid about $450 for a solid charcoal Polo II, and that's as much as I'd pay. To pay that price it would have to be a solid, have double vents and forward pleated trousers.

Not what you're asking, but the SF resale value is in the order of around $300-400, give or take a bit, depending on size and exact colour/details.

Right, it's on the higher end for solid navy or charcoal and in-demand sizes e.g. 38R rather than 48L (just to state the obvious). To answer bb's question though I could see $450 to $500 for a solid navy 2 button personally since I have a solid charcoal and a few pattern/stripes already.

Cool, thanks for the input. I asked because I just kopped this one to replace the one I have for sale and the BIN was $395. I guess waiting it out paid as it saved me about $39 and I don't have to wait for cashback.

It was originally listed as center vented which is why I passed it a few times.

I described the suit I purchased (thinking since the OP is asking about Polo suits, he may be interested in details) and further elaborated I only use a suit sparingly. I said I paid $150 and I would have been willing to pay a little more. I don't think it's a terribly difficult leap of logic to assume that is about the most I would be willing to pay.

complicated question. some are awesome, some not so much.

I would pay up to $500 for 38R navy flat-front if I needed a suit.

Full retail -- $1350 for the Corneliani in a simple charcoal gray. I had been shopping for ages, and it came down to that or a $1100 Canali that was charcoal gray with a pinstripe -- decided to get the more versatile one first.

I'm cursed to be in the land of little selection. Don't get me started on shoes -- Cole Haan is considered to be top quality around here!
