I have been reading the posts on this forum for a while now and find them to be a wealth of knowledge. However, being a newbie, although I can somewhat "piece" together the answers I am looking for from various threads and multiple hours, I thought I would just post my particular situation and questions and let the experts guide me in the right direction. I am just turning 30 and badly need to upgrade my current wardrobe....Due to the recent birth of my 2nd child, I am not about to go wild with the $$, however, I am in an industry where my clients are "c-level" executives....so I still need to look good. I have read many posts about getting great suits on e-bay etc. and I would be very willing to do that....I guess I am looking for some brands for my size/age that are professional but still relatively "young". My budget is around 5-700 and I figure that could get me a nice RTW suit off of ebay? heck, I'd even get two if I could. I would lean blue as that is a staple of the business dress for color. As for my measurements, I am 5'11 180ish. I measure at a 42R coat and 33 inch waist. You could say I am in the "athletic build" category...being a former collegiate tennis player. I have seen in other posts a recommendation for Corneliani, Canali, Oxxford etc. but didn't know if these would be a good call for my situation or not. Thanks so much from a newbie and let me know if any other info is needed to better assess.
