Feel like I'm at the point in my life, with some grey in my beard, that I want to build a wardrobe heavily influenced/styled in that of an English Literature Professor or even more so of a character from a Wes Anderson film. Things that come to my mind are corduroy suits, blazers/hunting jackets with elbow patches, thick framed glasses, etc. At this point I'm trying to figure out the best way to do it. I may be able to start with 3 suits that I could interchange the jackets and pants with? Also it would be nice if I could throw a sweater and jeans on with one of the jackets. You get the idea, some versatility. Instead of going to the mall and getting something from a place like Banana Republic I'd like to get something of better quality if I can. Could a tailor pull off a suit like this for $500-$1000? Is it worth having a tailor make something like this vs just going off the rack and getting it altered? Lastly are there any particular brands/shops I should checkout that would have this kind of clothing?
