Thanks.  The socks are Polo.  I found them on eBay.  Best.

Yes. Too busy. It clashes with the suit instead of harmonizing with the shirt and tie.

I have the same bow tie! Love this, as usual. I just wish you'd stop matching your socks to your ties/shirts. Looks too contrived.

@Cotton Dockers is that Polo SC silk/linen? Looks great.

Well, they don't have a store in Vancouver, and I am skeptical that they have suits of this quality under $50.

AAS - like that a lot. Bow tie suits your face very well imo.

bow tie (Click to show)

 

 

I like it, and it works well.  If  I were to nit-pick, I would say the width of the bow (left tip, to right tip) could be a touch narrower, but I really don't think the nit picking is necessary.  Great fit!

Not for $50, but add $200 to that and you'll have a Napoli in S110s. Probably needs less tailoring, and will last longer simply because it is brand new. I'd rather have 1 Napoli than 5 thrifted suits. Of course that doesn't mean you can't find great stuff at thrift stores, but even that tends to costs multiples of $50.
If you're confident the thrifted suits fits well and is of reasonable quality you should go for it, but don't buy a suit just because it's cheap/on sale. Many have made that mistake before, and you always end up regretting it.

If it's as described and consistent with what little we can see in the photos, he'll be fine for the time being. $200 is $200. If he has it, that's one thing, but if not, no amount of rationalizing can make the SuitSupply suit a real option.

I hear you on having one good suit, over more lower quality ones, however I don't have $250 to spend on one right now, so I picked it up.  I almost never pick up a suit at a thrift store for more than around $35, and I only take chances if they are dirt cheap (like $10).  This one happens to fit almost as well as I would buy new, and appears new without tags, and I know it's a quality suit. Hugo Boss retail is definitely overpriced; they go for $1200-$1500, which I guess is $1100-$1350 US, or something.  They are not the best suits in the world, or anything, but they are good, and they happen to be a good shape for me.  It's actually wearable as is, if I had a job interview, or something, tomorrow.  I didn't have a navy suit, so now I've added an important staple, even if it's just a place holder for a couple of years.

 

Currently, I need to direct any real money I spend on a suit to a mid-grey for my best friend's wedding.  For that one, I may just go to Suit Supply in Seattle.

Holy moly, their cheapest suits are less than 400 bucks. I had no idea!
