Hi. I am in the process of a wardrobe upheaval. I'm in my early 30s and finally make enough money to warrant a new wardrobe and do away with my 10 year old Jos A Banks suit, Banana Republic shoes, etc.
A few questions:
My charcoal suit is in great shape, so I first want to replace my shoes.
I like what I've seen (and read here) from Allen Edmonds, but open to other suggestions as well. I wear scrubs to work, so the only work related functions would be parties and interviews down the line. I do like to wear a suit to dinner, nights out, and of course all the other times when it's appropriate. I am torn between:
AE Park Ave.
AE 5th Ave.
I'm looking for something classy, versatile, and a bit of a wow factor. I really love the Strand in walnut, however I'm unsure if this pairs well with the charcoal suit.
Next - need a good suit. Will replace the charcoal one with another of the same color. Looking to spend $600-800 or so. What brands should I target for the best style and quality? I'm average build 6'0 & 185 lbs.
Last, how do I find a great tailor?
Thanks and happy new year!
