In the market for a suit...

Ok...I'm going to a wedding in three weeks and am in the market for a new suit. The only one I have is a rather boxy Men's Warehouse affair that I really don't like.

What I'm looking for is something slim yet classic. Perhaps three-buttons. Almost 60s in style. Maybe black - but I am open to suggestions.

I can spend about $600 - but, honestly, would prefer to spend less. As the name implies, I'm in NYC - which you'd think would be a help but in my price range seems to be more of a hindrance.

Anyone have any suggestions?

thanks.

Right...I didn't even think of Woodbury Commons. Thanks.

Any suggestion of brands/designers that have the clean 60s look i'm after?

I'm in NYC also and just bought a skinny black Valentino suit at Century 21 for $250. Go to either of the locations they have. One in Brooklyn and one downtown in the financial district. Just make sure you bring it to a tailor afterwards, so the suit looks like you bought it at Bergdorf's. The most expensive suits they have their aren't even over $500, and for this price you can get Canali, Fendi, Valentino, Boss, Cerruti, ect...

Plus, this save you the trip to Woodbury, which is great also.

If you're into Zegna or Canali, may I suggest Riflessi on Madison Ave? Not pretty- but great deals. E-mail me offline, and I'll be happy to provide contact info.

Thanks all for all the advice. This was my first time posting to the forum - and it's been a good experience so far.

A neat classic style....Joseph Abboud. For an all purpose, "natural" shoulder look, why not try Brooks Brothers?
