Great forum, have been a reader for a while, now need some help..
I live in upstate NY, and I just landed an interview at an Ivy League Business School on Friday. I don't have an appropriate suit for the interview.
Here's my problem.I don't have a lot of time. It's Saturday Afternoon, and I'm going to need the suit ready by Wednesday evening, due to work and travel considerations.
I don't have the time to get much tailoring done, or to run down to NYC to do some proper shopping. I need something that will look good OTR,
I've checked out some local outlets and department stores (JC Penny, Polo, Brooks Bros Outlets), and have been put off by the quality. If I'm going to spend the money, I don't want to regret it later. I will probably be wearing the suit a good amount in the next few years.
I did see one Brooks 346 suit that I liked, I know it's not their best quality, but the Fitzgerald cut was great, and it was the perfect gray color. But they didn't have my proper sized jacket (They had 38S, not 38).
I'm going to head down to Macy's now. See if anything there is acceptable. But I would REALLY appreciate any help or insight. Any larger department stores you gentlemen know of that stock quality suits? Should I just go cheap and pick something up at H&M?
I'm in the Albany/Saratoga area, if that helps.
