Soon I will be going on what are some of the most important interviews of my young life. I never had a suit before and am now in need of one very badly. I am not sure where to start - there are way too many options. The other day I went to Nordstrom and the suit that fit the best, according to my parents and the nordstrom guy, was an Armani Suit worth $1900. That is out of my budget - which is currently hovering around $1000 +/- 200. I am confused as to where I should go to make the definitive purchase. I have heard good things about Mr. Ned and other taylors in NYC - I am very close and it shouldn't be a problem paying these tailors a visit. Would that be the way to go rather than Brooks Brothers (they are having a sale) or stores like Nordstrom, etc? Furthermore, I have wide shoulders and am kinda on the skinny side - this causes problems with many suits that I tried on in Nordstrom. I was also wondering what you guys think the ideal color is for an interview suit - I do not want to wear black as that is the choice of most applicants. I want to stand out a bit. White shirt? Red tie? Please help. Thanks.
