I used to have three pretty mediocre suits, but thanks to moths and mishaps, all three are gone. So now I'm suitless. Last week I was measured for a MTM fully-canvassed, charcoal grey, wool suit over at Hong Kong Tailors (in Atlanta) which I believe will come out pretty nicely based on others I saw there.
I don't wear suits often, but I'm in an MBA program and my need for them will undoubtedly increase. I was thinking of getting a couple of backup suits that are on the cheaper side, which leads me to my question: Just how bad are Jos A Bank suits as "backups"? I was thinking of waiting for one of their inevitable 98% off sales and getting one or two. But am I better off taking another route?
Note that I am hard to fit. I'm basically a 44XL (although the occasional 44L is long enough to fit me). That's why I resorted to a MTM.
