Need Help! Suit for Interviews/New Job

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi,
 
I'm in my third year of law school and I'm going to be starting interviews for jobs and potentially starting work at a new law firm.
 
I really need a new suit, but don't have a very large budget, being a student and all.
 
I have no idea where to start looking for suits. I looked locally, but couldn't find anything good for a reasonable price. I just saw a place called Charles Tyrwhitt online, and was wondering if you guys had any opinions on the place. Or, if you knew of anything similar.
 
I live in Canada, but go back and forth to New York City quite often...
 
My budget for a suit would be around $500.
 
Thanks!

Granted, you're in Canada, I honestly live by Nordstrom Rack and Saks Off Fifth. I've also heard mention of Neiman Marcus Last Call, and I love me some NM, so Last Call sounds like it'd be fun.

 

Also, as long as you know how to pick out a suit, I don't see why you can't find something serviceable from (preparing for the possibility of major butthurt,) Jos. A. Banks or Men's Warehouse. For $500, you could come away with a few good looking suits and be on a fast track to building a nice rotation. Worry about the pricier labels later, eh?

 

Good luck with school, though. Making it to the third year, I doubt you need luck, though. Enjoy! 

 

Edit:

 

Also, while I'm on the topic of "low-end" suiting, why not look at a TJ Maxx/Marshall's or equivalent store? I've seen plenty of fun-looking Tallia Orange and some (again, prepping for the butthurt) Canadian-made Lauren Ralph Lauren suits (think tan or navy 6x2 DB) that I wouldn't mind picking up for myself.

 

Hope that helps!

A suit supply suit could be purchased for that price. With tailoring would come to your budget.

As GQ as I am... why didn't I think of Suit Supply? Hahaha, they're a wonderful option, too!

I would not recommend Charles Tyrwhitt for suits.  I would have thought you would want a better quality suit for interviews.

I will buy one suitsupply suit, wear it everyday and save some money to get a couple good suits later.
