I am looking for my first suit. I have not had any experience buying suits in the past.
I tried on very many suits and there are a few brands that fit my body shape with little or no alterations:
Ted Baker Endurance Slim Jim ($350-400)
Hugo Boss Slim Fit ($500-700)
Calvin Klein X Slim Fit (can't find a full suit but found blazer for $100)
Alfani Red Slim Fit ($270)
Everything else I tried seems to create this weird baggy shape around my belly area even with slim fits...
Unfortunately most of these brands (except alfani) is really expensive. and I heard most of these are fuse suits which is bad after first dry clean.
I am leaning towards buying the Ted Baker Endurance Slim Jim for $350 or $400 depending on design since it is not that much more than Alfani for $270 but looks a lot better and feels better. Before I pull the trigger, is this a good buy? What are alternatives in the same price range that are not fused and are hand stitched with the same cut?
