Well, in response to Dr. Bresch's price/avg. suit thread, I thought of another question that might be fun to answer. Question is two parts: #1 what is your favorite suit in your closet and how much did you pay for it? #2 What is the best value purchase you've made with regards to a suit? My answers: #1--tie between a blue pinstriped Borrelli (I believe it's probably Super 120s or 130s, if that exists) suit I bought from Ian Daniels and a black and white Baldessarini pinstriped Super 150 suit I bought when the Boss store in Atlanta closed. I got the Borrelli from Ian for ~$1000K and the Baldessarini for $800 (70% off retail, which is a ridiculous retail price). #2 Best value suit is a grey with purple pin striped Baldessarini suit I bought at the same Boss closing for $600. It was 70% off retail, plus the pants had already been altered, so I got another $300 off the price. I have short legs (30 inseam) and the altered pants had been altered to a 32 inch inseam. Bonus, I was going to alter them anyway.
