Hello, First I want to say that I'm new to posting at this forum, but I've been reading it for awhile, and I have found the advice here excellent. My dilema is this: I recently had to attend a funeral, and litterly had nothing to wear to it because I've never really started dressing nice until recently. Anyway, I felt out of place because it seemed like I was the only person not wearing a suit. So... I've decided to purchase one. I really do not know too much about buying a suit, but I have the following critiera: 1. It has to be low priced. It seems that alot of people in this forum are attached to desgners such as Armani, but being that I'm a college student that works a part-time job, I don't really have the money to invest in a suit of that caliber. I was wondering if I could get a suit for around 200-300?? 2. I would like to be able to wear it year round. I know that if I bought a real light colored suit, it just wouldn't go in the winter, etc. I need to be able to wear it to a funeral or a wedding, and I would like it to be a little conservative. I was thinking maybe a dark blue or black? I stopped by the mall today to look at a couple of stores (Dillards, JCPenny, Mcraes, etc). This is what I found At JCPenny's: Haggar Black Label Suit.-- Reg 260. Sale 180. It's 3 button, polyester/worsted wool/Lycra, black and a gray. Stafford Reg 250 Sale 180 It's 3 button, 100 % worsted wool, black Foleys has this add in the paper: Claiborne Suit. Coat reg 250, sales 165.99 Pants reg 120 sale 79.99 I'm kinda running out of places to go and shop. It seems that the suits either cost alot (600+), or they are really cheap. Anyway, any help would be appreciated. Thanks. BTW: I'm in Baton Rouge, LA if anyone knows of a good clothes store in or around here.
