inexpensive suits

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
hello!

I am looking to buy 4-5 or more winter formal suits in various colors

but they are for work, so i need them to be really inexpensive

do you know any place that I could shop?

below 80 USD each, would be ideally

I dont care much about actual quality or design, I just need them not to look cheap

thanks!

H&M or Target for the range that you are looking for.

or 2nd hand at goodwill etc. Some people have gotten great gear

My humble experience is that unless a tailor is involved in e the equation, you can spend three grand and still look like a slob. smile.gif H&M plus a cheap tailor was a winning combo for me.
The only thing I dislike about H&M is that they don't do working breast pockets. And in the latest collection their jackets feature mock pocket squares, which is a blocking issue for me, at least.

Wal-Mart

Seriously though, do they need to be suits - could you not get five work trousers instead.

...save your money. It's a waste of $400. Why are you buying suits for winter anyway? Is this a seasonal job? If you buy them, please post pictures of you wearing the suits.lurker[1].gif

+1 for thrift shops...

 

My first suit was one I paid $500 for at Men's Wearhouse. Everything else, I've thrifted. The best fitting and looking one is one I paid $25.

why the need for such cheap prices? depending on where you live, whatever suits you find on the street and just try on sizes until you find one that fits well?

well i find locally suits for 100 usd, with good quality, on sales season
but they have limited colors

i wondered if i could have a bargain with an overseas shop, given that i will place a bulk order and that i need many colors

many things surprisingly are cheaper when bought overseas, including shipping, but suits seem dont follow the rule

...definition of "quality?"...examples?

Suits ordered online from low-cost foreign suitmakers likely would look cheap, due to poor fit. Why not buy just 2-3 suits locally for a few hundred dollars each? Here's where location, description of suits already owned, etc. would help.
