Depends on what it is made out of, what mill it comes from and the finishing.

I have seen them from $10-$35 dollars. If it is 100% linen (or cotten or whatever) and has hand rolled edges, you are pretty much good to go. Kent Wang sells them for $20-25, I find this to be a good price point.post #14418 of 333154/30/12 at 2:25pmpost #14419 of 333154/30/12 at 2:26pmQuote:
Simonnot-Godard ones on A Suitable Wardrobe are $65, larger and much finer, with better rolled edges. Worth it, imo.post #14420 of 333154/30/12 at 2:26pmQuote:

Kinda depends on your coloring and suit color. If you're blond and wearing a lighter grey / khaki suit, probably option 1. If you're darker-haired and wearing a darker suit, option 2.
I hope you plan on pressing the shirt and adding collar stays, young man.post #14425 of 333154/30/12 at 4:02pmQuote:Originally Posted by Gibonius
BB ordinarily offers smaller sizes than that, I assume they're sold out right now after a sale. You can find decent BB stuff for around $700 IIRC during sales.
Another option, Last Call frequently has Hickey Freeman staple color suits for ~$350. They're very nice for the money, and usually plenty of sizes available online.
Thanks for the suggestion of Last Call. It seems like right now they don't have any gray suits that are <40. It seems like the suits they have, e.g. this one, have pretty high buttons; that seems to have a short looking appearance but maybe that isn't the standard thought?
I'm reluctant to spend $700+ on a suit at this point given that I will probably find a lot that I don't like about it later as I learn more. It also seems that BB suits are catered a lot more towards broader people.Quote:I would not do online MTM (eg ModernTailor) when you're not highly experienced with suit buying. The odds of getting something unacceptable are way too high.
That's what I keep reading, but it seems like the only viable option to get a slim fitting suit that fits me...
I was hoping that if I could get a shirt that fit properly from them first, I would have a reasonable chance of getting a suit that was ok.Quote:Rather impossible for anyone to tell. Go try stuff on at a store, even if you may not end up buying.Wouldn't make sense for you to be deciding between a 36L and 38S, the L would be dramatically longer and wouldn't make sense. You'd be deciding between a 38S and a 36S, or maybe a 36R.
Sorry, that was a poor choice of writing on my part. I meant 38s (plural), not 38S; I definitely cannot fit in a small. It seems like 36R has the right size shoulder and 38R has the right length for me in general.
I suppose if I got a suit with fake buttons, then I could go for a 36R and have it lengthened in the arms.Quote:It's not so bad, and remember people here have extremely high standards. Get something that's pretty good, find a decent tailor and work with them, and learn.
I suspect my problem is that I've read too much on this forum to know what is wrong with what I'm trying on, but I don't have enough experience to know how to fix it.post #14426 of 333154/30/12 at 6:55pmpost #14427 of 333154/30/12 at 7:18pmQuote:
Thank you for the advice, it is much appreciated.Quote:
I just threw on the shirt on in an attempt to show the color, will do.post #14428 of 333154/30/12 at 8:43pmQuote:Availability is always an issue with discount stores. I don't recall them being short when I tried some on in the store and I'm 6' and was trying on an R length. Maybe they're showing a different model jacket in the pictures.Originally Posted by bnovc

I've had sleeves lengthened in the past, gotta check to make sure how much material is available first though.I suppose if I got a suit with fake buttons, then I could go for a 36R and have it lengthened in the arms.Quote:It's a blessing and a curseI suspect my problem is that I've read too much on this forum to know what is wrong with what I'm trying on, but I don't have enough experience to know how to fix it.
Gotta learn somehow though, right? I just started taking thrift store finds to the tailor and seeing what they could do with them. It's somewhat painful to sink $70 into a $10 jacket and realize that it won't work in the end, but at least now I know more about tailoring and the process.post #14429 of 333155/1/12 at 5:19ampost #14430 of 333155/1/12 at 5:48am
So I'm headed to business school this Fall and wanted to add two suits to my wardrobe to prevent from overwearing my two existing suits. I'm a big fan of the BB Fitzgerald and purchased a solid black and a solid navy this past winter. I want to add to more to the collection in one of the upcoming spring/summer sales.
The one I know I'm getting is the charcoal tic; it seems to be a nice balance between the solid black and navy.
The other is up for debate and is between the saxxon herringbone in navy and the saxxon plaid in blue. I like both. My concern with the herringbone is that it's not different enough from the solid navy to warrant the purchase. I really like the subtleness of the plaid, but I'm worried that the plaid is not conservative and do not want to turn off recruiters. All things being equal, I'd probably go with the plaid. But, conservatism has a higher priority.
