Agreed. IMO, Brook's Brothers is over-priced, and the actual suits are only decent.

Which other brand would you recommend? Want to buy something that I can use for a couple of years and not have to worry about.
People from "B-school circles" recommended BB to you? You have to realize that a lot of those people aren't the type of people who care about a site like this. They just want to buy expensive, branded clothes to make them feel like big shots. If you can find a BB suit for between 3 and 4 hundred dollars, then it may be worth it. It will be convenient, but you'll probably still need to have it altered. If it was me, I'd buy a few online mtm suits, but that may take more measuring than you're comfortable with. In a b-school class, you can count the number of people who are wearing suits on one hand. The person who's wearing a suit is usually the middle-aged guy with an accounting or banking background.
