    Just looked. Plenty of Suit Supply suits at $469. I don't know if that comes with tailoring if you buy in-store. But then if you're buying online you're not paying sales tax. For the purposes of this thread, price will be exclusive of tax, which varies state to state and for now is zero on Internet purchases, and tailoring costs, which will also very place to place and person to person.

    tailoring is additional even if you buy in-store. for an average person, it'll run about 60-80 bucks. i think many people would agree (for the purpose of this thread) to leave the tax out of it. we can also decide to leave tailoring out of it as well to simplify things. buyers ought to be aware that the true price is usually a bit higher than what we discuss here. either way, like i said, the $500 cut-off is a very good number to generate a good discussion.

    I agree, it's important for buyers to be aware of all costs. I'll edit the OP.

    I have seen Martin Greenfield suits on Gilt for around $699. Do you guys think that might be a good value?
    Any opinions about the Greenfield brand?
