Long time lurker, first time poster. Just wanted to get a quick consensus on beefing up my suits for a new job. I've always worked in a business casual environment where slacks and a button down were the normal attire, but after being unemployed for a year (!), I just took a client facing job with a financial institution, and will be wearing suits everyday.
I currently have two JAB suits that suffice (charcoal and navy), but I hate how baggy they are, and they don't feel at sharp as I would like. I'm going to get them retailored so they are as good as could be. I also have a Macy's Amalfi suit (navy, tiny blue pinstripes) that is fine for what it is, but I like the cut more than the JAB.
I want to add three quality suits, and I'm trying to keep them under $500 a piece. I'm 5'9, 173lbs (fluctuates a bit, but been good for a while), sort of broad chest, but kind of average I guess for body type. Not a body-builder, but I like to do cardio to stay somewhat in shape. I prefer things that are slimmer fitting, I can't stand baggyness. I'll be working with high-net worth folks, and I'm not a flashy guy, but I like to look sharp. I'm going to head to BB this evening and check them out, and on Sat I'll be in NYC so I'm going to swing by SuitSupply.
Any thoughts on where I should procure three good work suits for around $500 a piece? THANKS!
