Question for all the suit experts/aficionados and deal hunters: I've been looking around for a good deal on my first higher-quality suit (right now I have two Abbouds from Gilt or something and a shitty CK--my current job only requires that I wear a suit once or twice a month).
I was planning to save up for a MTM from Kent Wang; however, I came across a Hickey Freeman 'Beacon' in gray birdseye on Nordstrom's website for half off and decided to pull the trigger.
Haven't received it yet so it might not fit, look wrong, be too heavy for my needs, etc., but I don't usually have a problem with OTR suits. With tax, it set me back $800, a little less than what I would be paying for a Kent Wang.
Is this a good deal on a mainline Hickey Freeman, or could I get something of superior quality for the same or cheaper (Kent Wang or some other MTM or OTR offering) if I keep hunting?
