I'm sorry for not being more specific. My budget is between $500 - $800. I'm one of those people when they are new to a subject and set a budget they do research and eventually purchase a very high quality expensive item that is pretty far outside the original budget. I do not want to get too expensive here as I will only be wearing the suit mainly for one occasion but one very important occasion.
The suit is actually grey, Black is actually the type of brand of Hugo Boss Suit. I think it's even worse than Hugo Boss. Yes, it's made in Turkey for all the good and bad of that.
I'm not a poor student but I am a fairly young professional (33) with a fiance (26) who is a student, so we live on one income basically.
My fashion varies. I know some of the brands and stores I mention may get frowned upon here but I will list them. For jeans, I stick with Levis 501 or 514 Slim. I like basic t-shirts (50/50 or Tri-blend) from American Apparel or similar quality. In the past I've bought the common brands like Kenneth Cole, Ralph Lauren Polo, etc. for business wear. I like Ben Sherman slacks. My only other suit is a Kenneth Cole (Made in India)...ouch. I do have a Breitling watch at least.
I do have good fashion sense and know how to dress but coming here I look to learn more and progress in this area, especially in formal wear.
Also, I must add that I'm getting married on in St. Lucia. It's an island wedding but not a beach wedding. We will be on a hill overlooking the ocean between the Pitons.
I have very little experience with suits. I'm embarrassed to admit it but I just recently became familiar with the terms: fused, half canvased and full canvased.
When I invest in something like a suit I do want quality but there is a law of diminishing return as I only have so much use for the suit at this point.
