Newbie here looking for advice on suits

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 

I am currently a solid 38R Jacket but 34 waist size (not the regular 32) and I am having trouble buying a decent quality suit (budget up to 650)

Must I buy seperates? (not many options for decent quality- as Banana Republic/Macys/Jos A - dont seem high quality)

Is there something else I can do other than getting custom? (afraid of cost)

 

Thank you guys for your help!

 

Alex

FWIW I am 38XLwith a 33 waist and I always have to get separates.
Club Monaco would be your best bet.

Search function my man. 

 

There is suit advice everywhere on here and your question has been asked on a weekly basis at least.

Also, BR is not high end, but they don't make trash. Every year I end up getting a suit or two from them. No man made fabrics, modern fit/styling, less than $300,...

Is it possible to let out the 32 pants to a size 34 waist? I have very similar dimensions (38R jacket, 33-34 waist), so I usually have my tailor let out the suit's pants to give me the room I need.

It's possible, but I wouldn't advise it.

I searched the site a few times and found the question asked about 2 times with few to no suitable answers (no pun inteded)

but if you could show me a link to more- great!

Why not btw?  Do the pants end up looking misfitting?

Less than 300? How? On eBay? Their prices seems higher than that and for the quality I would rather spend somewhere else. For 300 though I wouldn't mind an extra

Thanks! Thier better suits are closer to 800 total. You think they are worth that? Do they discount thier made in America line or the others?

blacklapel.com has similar pricing to indochino.

 

I have had success letting pants out. I also own two JAB suits that are pretty decent (traveller tailored) - may be a cheap alternative if you need suits now. They had a in-house tailor that was able to make the let out pants look natural.

 

Hope it helps.
