Pick Stitching Prada Interview Suit - Page 2

post #16 of 27
Try BB Fitz or Regent cut as they fit pretty well and there are lots of sales this time of year. You want to be traditional in an interview and you can't get much more traditional than BB.

Easy there big fella. IMO, they don't fit well at all. It all depends on your size and how you like your suits to fit.

They have many different cuts and lots of younger, trimmer guys like myself think that they all fit like old fat guy tents. I have learned how to shop there and which cuts to get as mentioned above. In addition, the tailor knows what I like by now and tailors to my liking.

I hear you. Between the over-priced products and the alteration costs, I'd rather just buy a mtm than a BB. but it works for some people.

What list priced item is not overpriced? When I buy suits there they are GF and alterations are free and since I buy them on sale I pay less than $1000. Sport coats and pants also on sale cost $18-$25 vs my good suits that I bring to a master tailor to get tailored that runs be about $300 per suit so once again you lost me on your argument. Besides, I would pay full price for an 1818 suit before I paid full price for a Hugo Boss.

I'm not in favor of pick stitching on suits..makes the suit noticeable for the wrong reasons.

While we all agree that the posted suit is not an interview suit, pick-stitching is not the problem with it.

Cruizer, please explain your logic or lack there of? Do you not like details in general on garments?

I disagree. IMO, there's nothing about the suit that says that it can't be worn for an interview. I wouldn't wear it EVER, but if OP wore it to an interview, he wouldn't make a bad impression (if it fits).

Traditional interview suits should be charcoal or navy unless you are going for a senior position in an industry such as banking then you may consider pinstripes.

The "rules" say that you should wear charcoal or navy, but variations in shades of grey and blue are perfectly acceptable. A lot of people quote that "rule," but I'd bet that most of the guys here would be fine with wearing a lighter shade of grey or blue to an interview. You may feel differently. That's fine, but we don't "all agree that the posted suit is not an interview suit."

 

I think that this thread is about wrapped up, so I'm not going to come back again.

I don't know who besides the Mac above is quoting that rule. I repeat my original statement about traditional interview suits should be charcoal or navy. You can wear whatever you want to an interview but unless you are going for a creative type position stick with something that doesn't distract from what you are trying to sell--you.
