If I was building a suit wardrobe with a navy or black suit and had only $400 to spend...

Would Jack Victor be a better investment than Banana Republic?  Or is neither a good investment?  I'd like to have this suit for weddings, interviews and possibly hospital work.

 

I am a very slim guy, wearing size 36 with a 38'' chest. It's hard to find something that looks right on me.  I know banana republic suits are fused but the cut fits well on me.  I just don't know about quality vs Jack Victor.   Also is Jack Victor slim/tailored for a more modest silhouette?

 

Thanks and sorry if this sounds like a dumb question.....

Get navy, not black. Where are you located?

Neither will be with you for very long (especially if you've now found your way here).

I wouldn't call a $400 suit an "investment." At that price, it's either a steal or a quick fix. I don't have experience with either of those brands, but I've heard decent things about BR.

 

PS: Get the navy suit. Don't buy black.

Since it seems there is little difference in quality, I would go with the Banana Republic, since it fits you better. As the others suggested, get navy or charcoal, not black.

Agreed. It is really just something temporary as they probably will not last long with you.

Okay, thanks for everyone's advice.  In your opinion, is this particular suit an okay quality?

The quality should be fine but buy Navy or charcoal. Avoid black.
