Advice on a Lauren by Ralph Lauren suit - Page 2

post #16 of 17
Go on Jos. A. Bank's website. There is a 70% off sale. Use the code "PFD5". Get a Signature suit - should cost you around $250. Is it great? No. But it will be a serviceable, workhorse suit. Certainly better than the Ralph Lauren you're looking at.

Do bear in mind the fact that while you may be able to purchase a suit immediately, alterations will often take a week or more. And alterations - if only hemming/cuffing the trousers and shortening the sleeves (these being the two more common ones) - are almost always required.

So if you need to wear the suit this coming weekend, not only should you purchase it today, but you'll likely have to find a tailor willing to do a rush job on it for you.

Expert alterations matter. A lot. A $250 suit that's been expertly tailored and fits you perfectly, can look and feel better than a $2500 suit that's just a little off here and there.

I second the suggestion that you go to Jos. A. Bank. No, their Signature and Signature Gold line of suits aren't fantastic, but during a good sale (as opposed to the dozens of faux sales on them every year) they're decently priced for being perfectly adequate suits. JAB tends to carry a wide range of sizes, colors, patterns, styles, etc., although as not everything is carried at all times by every store, it's sometimes necessary to order the suit you want and wait several days for delivery.

You can get your alterations done at the Jos. A. Bank store, or somewhere else. It's not like there's necessarily any advantage to having the work done by JAB, and someone else may do a better, faster, less expensive job.

Oh, and Lauren by Ralph Lauren, at Macy's, is no bargain, at at 40% off. And as a general thing, 100% wool is to be preferred over a wool/poly blend.

Seriously, stop focusing on Macy's, go to your nearest Jos. A. Bank store, and buy there.
