So I went on an adventure to the local outlets in search of a suit. Most of the stores were rather lackluster and dissapointing. The Barney's outlet had 90% house label at hardly appetizing prices. Off 5th was mostly the same, very few choices and hardly great prices. The Brooks outlet was full of their 346 value trash. I even looked at the Hugo Boss store, where the prices could be reasonable but selection was terrible; I'd probably bite at a $200-250 Boss suit even if they aren't very good. Woe to my 38/40 frame . Then I came to the polo outlet. At first it seemed to be full of nothing but Lauren crap. But then I spotted the tiny little rack of blue,black, and purple label. Most of it was garish, like an orange - yes bright orange - sportcoat. But i stumbled across this little beauty that I could not possibly pass up. It's a Purple Label white linen DB peak lapel sportcoat. I was shocked at the price... original MSRP $1095.... "our price" $69.99... AND a 50% off sale. It was too good to pass up. Now The double breasted thing throws me off a bit, as its not something I'd normaly wear. I was thinking it could be a fun tropical coat. I was also pondering making it a suit by going down to Banana or something and buying a pair of their white linen pants. Sorry about the pictures, testing my camera and imageshack . I also found this fantastic deal. A grey Blue label suit for $150. The problem is it is too big. The shoulders and chest seem to fit well, but the gut area is just huge. Im gonna take it to a tailor and see if he can perform a small miracle... if not I'll try to give it a good home to one of you guys.
