I have always depended on the opinion of salesmen to help fit a suit. But, I feel like I've always been steered wrong by them and never ended up with a suit that truly fit me the way I feel good about.
I'm new to Toronto, and don't know where to go to find an affordable decent-good quality suit for <$800, at a place that is staffed by people I can truly trust to give me a good opinion of how the suit should look and fit.
I casually walked in to the Hugo Boss outlet in Vaughan, and didn't like the way the suit I liked fit. The salesman told me it was supposed to fit exactly like it did - but he was shoe-horned into something that looked way too small for him, so my faith in his advise was about zero lol.
Does anyone have some advice on where I can go to get GOOD advice on buying a suit? At $800 I can't afford anything overly fancy. But, I want to feel good about my purchase, and not just walk into Zara or something.
I work crazy hours and have limited time to run around all over the place only to be disappointed, and I don't have a lot of available cash right now, so I also can't afford to make a mistake and blow $800 on something that isn't the right suit for me.
I've read so many reviews on places it's making my head spin. I have arbitrarily narrowed it down to the Harry Rosen Outlet in Mississauga and GotStyle in Downtown Toronto. But I don't have any real logic behind picking these two places lol. I like Harry Rosen, and figure maybe I can afford something in their Outlet store. GotStyle just seems to be a name that pops up a lot.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! And any tips on how to know when the salesman is wrong would be great too LOL. I work in a sales driven industry, and know from experience that often "the right product is the one I have available to sell you today."
PS. Crossing the border isn't an option right now. I'll have to suck it up and pay Canadian prices and go shopping south of the border in the spring.
