This is my first post, and I've spent some time looking around in the past here. I hope to be a regular member and introduce myself soon.
First things first, I have a wedding coming up in 2 weeks, so need to buy a suit ASAP.
I'd like to spend around $1750 tax in (Ontario, CAD) for the suit, shirt and tie. I'd be willing to go slightly over, but i'd like to stay in this range.
Shoes will also be purchased, but I will budget for this separately.
MTM not an option due to time. I'm a 40R OTR.
What stores, brands do you recommend? I want a modern fit, not totally slim but form fitting. Thoughts so far:
- Brooks Brothers (outlet as well?)
- Harry Rosen (outlet as well?)
- Walk around Yorkdale mall and see what they have (Armani and Boss stores...etc.)
- Any other stores in the Burlington, Oakville, Mississauga area?
I'm thinking Blue Suit (possibly lighter than navy), White shirt (with some interesting pattern woven in, or a check perhaps, no cuff links) Tie must be purple.
I appreciate your help.
