try on a few MJ bale suits and see how they fit you. they have the 2 for $1k deal which is good value for money. their Collection range (about $1,300) is very good but for that range you may as well go for PJ. decisions, decisions. if i were you, to build a basic suit wardrobe, get MJB (preferably a navy and charcoal), and once the basics are down pat, move onto PJ. have a look at suitsupply too. they have a big thread here, about 50 pages of solid reading to go thru.
Thanks for the advice. I suppose my issue is that there's not a lot of point having a suit wardrobe per se (although 2 suits hardly constitutes a wardrobe), simply because a suit is so incredibly out of place and ridiculous in my field (public education at the middle years in low-income schools) I don't know I'd wear a suit for anything other than special occasions.
That being said, who knows? Maybe I'll be principal someday.
I'm a bit more wary of suitsupply, simply because I can't try them on (and I'm not confident in measuring myself for suit jackets/pants).
