Hello all...2nd post here. I found this post after feeling rather stupid upon walking into a clothing/suit store. Braddocks here in New Jersey. Allow me to explain: I have a Bar Mitzvah to attend this weekend. The kid's mother asked if I had a suit/sports coat. That's a negative. I left it back at school in Atlanta with a friend. Never thought I'd need it. At any rate, the Bar Mitzvah is very formal. I need a suit, she concluded. We go suit/coat shopping and end up in the above mentioned store. Though I try hard to stay abrest in terms of clothing and style, I recently started working in an office setting (with the government) and know absolutely nothing about suits. Very few people here wear one, and it won't be YEARS until I work where we need one. The guy at the store was very helpful don't get me wrong. But Im don't really enjoy shopping (or buying anything for that matter) without knowing a little about something. At least a vague idea. The guy made me feel rather stupid, and me being a student at Georgia Tech took this rather personal. ha. But anyways, I walk out the store with a nice Versace suit. After some tailoring and adjustments/measurements, it fits me quite well and fits just as comfortable as it looks. It was costly if you ask me, but I didn't pay so I can't really argue/complain about it.
I like the suit. After leaving the store, I was destined to find a place where I could be informed about suits and possibly the latest in fashion and clothing. I always believe my clothes-shopping habits will be the end of me. I got to work and searched 'mens fashion' and 'mens clothing' under google and after a couple clicks here and there came upon this site. I just wish I would have found it earlier, for Im sure I could have found something better for the $$ I spent on the Versace. Maybe next time. So that's how I landed here. And now a question if I may so add... What's the difference between a fused suit and the other type. (I cant remember right now.) I know that one is more than the other. Also...do you guys know of any sites that give good info...in terms of types of suits, their cut, style and appearance, level of style and so forth. Im like a sponge, ready to absorb whatever I can get my eyes on. THanks all...Nice to be here.
