I just discovered styleforum and I think it is going to be an enormously useful resource for me -- but man is there a lot read!
Anyway, I recently started a new job in the HQ of a very large corporation. I need to wear a suit or sportcoat every day, but at the moment I have only two suits (ok, nothing special) and one very cheap sportcoat. The job pays well enough that I will be able to afford quality suits in the future, but at the moment I urgently need about 3-5 additional suits and 1-2 additional sportcoats. The problem is that I only have about $2000 to spend right now.
I've done a bit of shopping around and at the moment, it appears to me that my best options budget- and fit-wise would be either the Brooks Brothers outlet near where I'm staying right now or the dreaded Jos. A. Bank. I can find some Hugo Boss in my price range, but the fit is terrible. I live near a Charles Tyrwhitt store and their prices look good online, but I am traveling for awhile so I cannot go there anytime soon.
If anyone can make some suggestions to get me through the short-term in style, I would appreciate it! (And if anybody can recommend a good tailor in Paris, that would be helpful too!)
