I was recently given $2,000 in Bloomingdale's gift cards to buy some more business attire (mainly 1-2 new suits), and could use some guidance on their suiting offerings.
As some background I work in the finance industry and, my current wardrobe includes:
- Blue Herringbone (Brooks Brothers 1818 Collection)
- Dark Blue Pinstripe (Brooks Brothers Brookscool)
- Dark Grey (random DKNY suit from Macy's)
- Black Pinstripe (from Men's Warehouse)
Ideally, I'd add one more grey suit (maybe pinstripe?) and solid blue suit. My firm doesn't seem to be too critical of the cut, but definitely no flashy colors.
At the Bloomingdale's near my work they have RLBL, Canali, Hugo Boss, Burberry, and Z-Zenga suits. After some research it seems like many on this forum have a low opinion of Hugo Boss, leaving the other four options. Of what's left, would you suggest spending the extra money and getting one of the fully canvassed RLBL suits (I didn't include Canali as my boss almost exclusively wears those, and would give me a "wtf" look if we wore the same brand), or, assuming a 20-40% sale, getting two of the Burberry suits?
Any thoughts or other options would be really helpful!
