Peter Millar Two Button Suit

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I was at Nordstrom Rack and saw this suit in my size for $360.

http://shop.nordstrom.com/S/3055316

I know there was a thread in June about the quality of Peter Millar sport coats, so I apologize if any of this is redundant or annoying. I'm looking for more opinions on the quality and price of his garments and whether I should save my $360 or go for this suit. I don't really have a pressing need for new suits, but I like the appearance of this one and will jump on it if it seems to be a good deal.

It would basically be for wear during religious services, which I attend twice weekly, so I assume the pattern wouldn't violate any style codes.

Any input would be appreciated. Thanks.

If I'm not mistaken, Peter Millar suits are made in Montreal by Empire Clothing and are fused. That said, don't be fooled into thinking that only high end fully canvassed suits are acceptable. Imo, if it fits you nicely and you like the cut, then $360 seems like a reasonable price for it. I liked the ones I saw at Nordstrom last year.

Otoh, I'm not so sure a plaid is a good idea for a suit that will be worn twice a week...

I looked at the Peter Millar line in Charlotte at the Southern Clothing Show last week. Not impressed by the tailored clothing, the stripes didn't even line up from the collar, plaids on the jackets didn't line up and the shirt patterns (stripes and plaids) were also poorly matched. Looks like a bunch of hype and marketing to me...needless to say, i passed on putting it in my shop

You know, I usually pay moderate attention to those details but I didn't notice. I wasn't really in a shopping mood and just stopped into that particular store because I was in the area. I'll have to check it out if I'm in the area again and they haven't sold the suit.

I'm sorry. I wasn't clear. I wouldn't dream of wearing anything but a plain gray or navy suit twice a week. I meant that I attend the meetings twice a week.

I usually focus my attention more on my shirts, ties and pocket squares/hankies. I'm trying to improve the quality of the suits in my wardrobe. They are admittedly suspect although I do make sure to have the appropriate alterations performed.

Thanks again.
