    Sorry....JAB is a full step above Men's Wearhouse. The quality may not be much higher, but there is much more style and taste involved. I have had no problem recommending young men there for "starter" suits.

    I think when it comes to suits and jackets, the merchandise at MW varies more than at JAB. At JAB, you just get the various JAB lines, and that's it. At MW, while they do have their house brands like "Versini" and whatnot, they do carry some halfway decent stuff like Jack Victor, at least in their more upscale locations, I'm told. I haven't been inside a Men's Wearhouse in years. Their solid-colored silk pocket squares were a good buy, I thought, but nothing else appealed.

    However, when all is said and done, if (God forbid!) I had do all my shopping for dressy menswear at either JAB or MW, I would prefer JAB.

    I have actually gotten some nice ties at JAB. I might consider buying shoe polish at MW.

    That red suit made me think of the court room scene in "My cousin Vinny"

    That, or something Prince might wear (only in purple, of course).

    This is all getting a bit stupid, if it wasn't already...

    JFC. What kind of "important business meeting" does the OP go to?
