    None of my suits fit. I am going to need a suit for a funeral next MONDAY [​IMG] and quite possibly an upcoming job interview. I am also losing weight (so who knows what will fit in a few months...). They are having a sale on Hickey Freeman suits at Saks (~$900). I am thinking about buying one this weekend. Would you trust them to adjust it? I suppose I could find a tailor in Indianapolis, IN (closest large city), but this is awful short notice. Alternatively, I could buy cheap and hope for the best. What do you guys think I should do? I am also a noob to style (if you couldn't tell [​IMG]).

    If you don't have the time, you loose options in choice and price. Buy what fits in the shoulders and you can have the rest recut (within reason).

    Even if you are paying quite a bit for the suit, at least it is quality.

    I'd go cheap if you are loosing the weight (depending on how much) and I would not drop 900 for a Hickey suit.
