So I decided to put my budget to work and went to the mall... hugo boss, brooks, macys, h&m, j crew, and I found that zara was best for my price range. I didn't even walk in prada... too intimidated.. haha. Anyways, main thing I'm concerned with is the shoulders on the suit. I'm wondering how it looks. It definitely doesn't go beyond my shoulder and it fits snugly.
So, here is top #1.
Definitely, the sleeves are long and I also want the waist to go in a bit.
Is the suit professional enough for a job?
At the store. Where da girls at?
Brought it home. Sorry for my crappy cell phone cam and mirror.
So there you have it. The main difference with 1 and 2 is that 1 is a lighter/shinier charcoal and 2 is darker and the shoulder is more relaxed-cut. They didn't have pant size for suit 2 but I bought the top anyways so I can buy the bottom at another zara.
This is so much more difficult than I thought, esp. with being on a budget. I can't wait for tailoring because I've had jeans and dress shirts fitted but never suits. Let me know your thoughts on whether these designs work or not. I like how they sit relaxed on my body, and despite it's slim-cutness, it's not restricting nor do I feel to ostentatious.
