So ill be interviewing this fall with a few of the larger IB firms as well as a boutique or two in New York and need some new interviewing suits. I am looking to get one charcoal and one navy. I have found in the past that I will just buy a suit for an interview and then never wear it again because I don't like it or feel that it doesn't fit right. I'm planning ahead this time to try and find a suit that will give me the confidence I need during these interviews as well as not just get thrown into the closet when im done. So I went into Saks the other day and really liked the solid charcoal grey Armani collezioni suit I tried on. I'm really contemplating buying it but the $1825 price tag is discouraging me. Especially since I need two suits and 1800 for a suit off the rack is a little excessive. So, I guess my questions is where can I pick this suit up cheaper or does anyone have any recommendations as to another brand that fits similar( I fell that this suit fit me better than any other suit I own). I also tried on a Rossellini suit at Hugo Boss but it was 900. I own several boss suits of similar quality and paid less than half of that. So any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Buy the way im 6'2" 185 lbs and have an athletic build with larger upper body. I think for interviewing purposes I will stick to a solid color 100% wool(no stretch or other style), 3 button, single breasted suit with a modern fit and flat front pants. I'm not opposed to a pinstripe or shadow on the navy suit. Please any suggestions on where to start would be helpfull.
