    Just wondering how much the average slick dealer spends on a suit.

    I'm a newer member here, but I can only say I've spent $200 on a suit.

    I have spent as much as $1,000, but try to stay in the $500-$700 range.

    Of course, I have bought suits for less, but most I like seem to fall in that range.

    More importantly, where do you wear a $200 suit?

    If we're talking canvassed worsted wool, not K and G polyester viscose fused crap, I've scored J Crews BNWT as low as $150, and gone bespoke for $2k.

    I try to purchase fully-canvassed suits. I will look for fabrics such as super 100s+ suits. Anything less is not worth is quality wise. I have a Hugo Boss suit which the jacket is completely coming apart, and I've only had the suit for a yr pahtetic!

    Most of my suits are bespoke, just because of my unusual dimensions. They typically go about $1500 for a two piece.
