It was an interesting situation. I went to look at what Brooks Brothers had. I found one I liked, but it was a full price at $1200. The salesman took my contact info and said he would call if it went on sale. I got to the parking lot, started to drive and away, and then thought I should ask about the alteration charges. Went back in, the salesman said he would have to check the computer based on the suit. Turns out, the suit was on sale (50% off), but someone had removed the sale tag and placed it in the regular rack instead of the sales rack. I'm guessing someone tried to hide it and was planning on coming back for it. I agreed to open a brooks brothers charge account, which gave me an extra 15% off. So after alterations and sales tax, it was $612.
