I need a suit for job interviews...I asked my tailor, who I later discovered is well regarded for his custom-made suits, which off-the-rack suits he likes, and he recommended J Crew. They are just a few blocks away here in San Francisco.
The J Crew Ludlow suit in navy worsted wool with the slim fit pants looked really good on me. I'm on the skinny side (5' 10.5", 150 lbs) which might help. I don't know but the fit was very flattering, the color looked great on me, and the fabric had a nice hand.
But the reviews on this site are so negative it makes me think twice. Can anyone recommend an alternative slim suit for under $700 that I can try on here in San Francisco? Really, you have to try it on don't you? I'm planning to have it fine tuned at my tailor after I buy it.
