I am not a suit connoisseur nor do I own very many suits (or ones that fit me well at least) so I am looking to slowly acquire descent ones for school interviews, weddings etc. I trust the SF posters so I hope you can offer your opinion, but if this suit were to cost $500 for BOTH jacket and pants, would you think it was a wise investment? How practical do you think it is for my needs? Do you know if BR monogram will last a while if taken care of? http://bananarepublic.gap.com/browse/product.do?cid=42108&vid=1&pid=421283&scid=421283002 I have to admit that I would not buy this suit at full price, but seeing as how a large discount can be procured, there is a reason for me to consider. Thanks and hope to hear people's opinions. If you hate BR, please refrain from chastising me and focus your anger on the suit or company itself.
