What do you guys think of Express suits?

I bought the cream producer and navy photographer pants a while ago. They fit amazingly well and I really loved the colors. I'm picky on color and it was the exact shade of cream and navy pants that I had in mind.

I'm thinking of completing the navy photographer suit by buying the jacket and the vest. What do you guys think? I've heard bad things about Express suits, the main complaint being that they're too expensive. I have a $200 express gift card so I'm not worried about the price too much. I rarely shop at express, so I might as well use it. Also, I don't avoid a brand just because its overly mainstream. As long as it doesn't have a logo on it, I really only care about fit, color, and quality.

I'm a 24 y/o student FYI, so I'm not really looking for an ultra high quality expensive italian suit, just something to look good in on a decent budget. I'm on the fence about buying it, so I figure i'd ask.

no clue what these things cost, but bottom line, they are pretty crappy.

From what i magine, you are talking about wool blends (to be stretchy for that tight fit), poorly constructed, too short, etc.

If you like the tighter shorter suit idea, I would look for a new or slightly used jcrew ludlow on ebay. The quality of materials and assembly are better and it will just look and feel a whole lot better.
