Longtime lurker; just started posting yesterday.
I'm looking for a fairly low-priced, lightweight wool suit. I'd consider spending more than $500, but probably not much more unless one really wins me over (I'm a government attorney with a lot of student loan debt). The two suits that I currently have in my rotation are Abboud (I think I found them both on Gilt or something), but I feel like I need something a tad bit lighter for the Texas summer.
I'm stuck on labels, however. Is there by chance any amount of consensus around these parts on who makes a superior, lower-priced suit? This week I'm looking at the Nordstrom's anniversary sale, and I've just begun checking out eBay. I was looking at Boss; until I came across a thread here claiming that Boss is generally viewed as overpriced (and there do seem to be similarly priced suits that are made in the U.S., although I'm not sure this matters). Could someone give me a few quick ideas, or perhaps point me in the direction of a pertinent thread I might have missed?
(and I apologize if this isn't an appropriate question for this thread)
