Good evening everyone,
So as of late I've been pondering the purchase of a new suit. The current one that fits me now is a Jos. A Bank suit (the exact series escapes me) that's a dark, solid navy blue. I bought it last year for an event for my school and Navy Blue was the required color. My other suit, a Black & Brown (by Joseph Abboud) got caught in a rain storm the day of Senior Pictures, so wearing it is a no go, and it was for a while since the slacks were too short and the waist was too small. My Jos. suit fits me decently, but the slacks are short (Waist is perfect), the creases aren't very crisp at all (they just fall like noodles typically) and the jacket fits boxy, and really accentuates my shoulders, plus I'm not fond of the color. Also, I'm not a fan of the pleats. Overall, I'm just not happy with how I look in it, I'm a senior in high school (so we're not talking an every business professional) but I wear a suit much more often than the typical teenager. I accompany my parents to charity events they're involved in, and other business events, along with the number of dances and other events coming from school that require more formal attire, plus I like to dress well (or, at least try to dress well.) It's fun for me. A new suit would be great, but I fear that my age is too risky for buying a new suit since I may outgrow it. I'm 6'2, with my growth spurt hitting me early-mid last year. I grew about 5-6 inches within a year. It's a fairly significant amount, so that lends me to believe that, for the most part, my growing period has passed its peak, but can I still grow a considerate amount that a new suit would prove futile since I may still grow a good amount that I would outgrow it, or maybe I'm just too young to be buying suits. If you say "go-for-it" then any suggestions? I"d be willing to pay up to $600-$700 overall. So, what do you think? Get a new suit? (Maybe by next month) or just wait 'til I've stopped growing overall?
