    I'm looking to buy a suit for mainly weddings/funerals as my current one fits horribly I've now found out after some research. I'm wondering what my luck or options would be at a mens warehouse type store with my size (which I'm not sure of). I'm about 5'11" 195 athletic build and I'd guess chest would be in the 40-42 range? Would I have a lot of options finding something off the rack or any suggestions of what to look for or feel, in the fit? Also wondering what type of quality I would want to get since this will probably only be worn 3-4 times a year. So it doesn't need to be an everyday suit in terms of durability, but I don't want it to look extremely cheap obviously.

    I'm hoping to find something decent in the $300-500 range and then bring it to a tailor friend of mine to fit it better. I don't want a $1500 suit, (actually I do, I just can't afford to pay for one) but just something that looks nice and fits extremely well. Any advice for a fashion-impaired guy?

    Can someone explain to me flat front pants and pleated pants. Is one more fashion and the other traditional? Younger/Older etc.

    Thanks

    I'm looking for quality Italian bit loafers that are offered in wide sizes, any suggestions? I am also looking for good suede chukka boots in wide sizes, something with a slender cut. Anything in the $400 - $500 price range for each, thanks.

    Pleated are considered at the moment, by the general public, as less fashionable and for older people. But this doesn't mean they can't be worn, you just have to be careful with the cut and make sure they fit well.

    What color are your pants? That should be the main driver.

    Check the buying and selling section of this former or ebay. For 50 bucks you are going to have a tough time finding things in stores.

    Like Texastyle suggested, eBay. For $50, you could probably find a decent pair of used Florsheims. Set up a search that includes your size and save it so that you get an email with new listings daily.

    Bought new at retail- no way.
    Used- sure. I have quite a few pairs of shoes i have bought off Ebay for $30-60 that go for 300-400+ retail. Excellent shoes in very good condition

    Has anyone heard of a MTM company recruiting people and making them pay for their training??? Ive never been with a company that didn't foot the bill for any training, does this sound like a scam???
