I would like to know how to size up the quality of a suit/jacket while in a store. As I am a bargain hunter and also trying to learn a bit more about suits and jacket construction. I'd like to be able to kick the tires on the quality of a suit in a store.

What steps would you take to do this? The big item, I have no idea how to tell if the jacket is canvassed, or half-canvassed for that matter.

I thought there may be some threads on this topic, but SF search feature could be better and is not locating such threads.

  • No way José! Dress watch with leather strap for me!

  • No watch at all.
