So I was in a Neiman's Last Call in Florida, and found a Paul Smith London line suit that accidentally had the "extreme" discount stam on it, and was $129.50. I know they sure ain't worth the $1,295 they go for, but this seemed good, lol. And though I'm usually only a 40R, they cut these so small that the 42L (only size they had) actually seemed to fit nicely (big in the waist, which is easily fixed), and a tad longer than I usually buy my suits, but still good. I figure I'll put another hundred bucks into it, and it'll be damn near perfect. Oh, it's navy with stripes (blue and white) and high two-button, with flat-front pants.

Wow good price. They tend to be fashion-forward, so that means you were smart in spending such a low amount on it. It's probably not a suit you'll be wearing 15 years from now.

Yeah, but the 20 times I do get to wear it makes it the cheapest rental in the world
. I only wish they'd made that mistake on the rest of the stock, there was a cool black one with light brown stripes on it as well, but that was still over $500. Not worth it, IMO.
