So I have a half canvassed suit that cost me just shy of $800 (including tailoring). I love it but I can't relax when I'm wearing it because for my budget, it's expensive and I want to look after it - I don't even sit back in chairs because I want to minimize wrinkles etc.
I'd like to get a grey suit because I think they look more rock n roll but I want to spend a lot less cash so I can mess around in it and not be stressed about it getting messed up. Any suit I purchase I will get tailored to ensure a nice snug waist, appropriate sleeve length etc as I'm an avid believer of the "cheap suit fitted > expensive suit with bad fit" mantra. Of course people with an eye for fashion can tell quality fabrics et al., but 99% of people will just see the color & fit.
So what are good options? I hear some forums recommending JAB but then others absolutely slamming it.
Two additional considerations:
- I'm 6"1 / 180lbs but chunky legs so usually I need a small drop e.g. 5" or I need to be able to buy separates.
- I live in NYC, so if you have recommended suits that I could actually try on here, that gets double points (and points mean prizes).
