I just got accepted into a business program which requires that I have a couple of suits to wear to events, presentations, etc.
I'm looking to spend around $1,200 for 2 suits, and to get the best quality possible for this price point. From what I've read so far, I should be looking to get a suit that is fully or at least half canvassed, and that made to measure is preferable. Is it possible to find a quality MTM suit at this price point? Does anyone know of a tailor that offers student friendly pricing?
I have also been exploring the option of being more budget conscious and getting one of the Banana Republic Monogram suits on one of the 40% off days, or getting a lower end Hugo Boss suit at the Harry Rosen summer sale. I've heard mixed things about fused suits - that the quality is inferior, but also that in recent years the technology has improved greatly. With my limited budget, is this the best way to go? If I take this route are there any stores/brands that have a good value?
Any suggestions on the type of suit to get or places to go would be much appreciated. Thanks!
