    I used to go pick up Zara blazers for 10 euro in Spain, used it for maybe two weeks of solid partying, then give the blazer to a homeless musician and redo the cycle. Pretty satisfied then. Other than that though, Zara quality is a joke

    Zara has great fit but the suits won't last too long.

    If you get it on sale it's okay though.

    I am tall and slim with broad shoulders so it's very hard to buy anything RTW in the U.S. that fits without a lot of tailoring so I buy Zara sometimes if I need something then and there.

    Otherwise, if you can wait, go Suitsupply or, up one more level, get RLBL Anthony on sale.

    Polyester suits are an abomination and should be avoided.

    It sounds like you want to do this so...
    If they're 100% wool (which I think is becoming a rarity for them) and they're on sale, then go for it. As long as you get some tailoring done.

    Just by getting a suit and thinking about fit you're way ahead of the rest of the male population, where ever you may be.

    Are you serious? 10 Euro for Blazers? What price would they go for now on Sale? When do these "sales" happen?

    Hmm,,

    I'd like to try and get one for 2 reasons:
    - Temporary Suit for few interviews - How cheap can I get them? and When?
    - Determine the FIT that works for me and use that for an better MTM/ Bespoke type of suit
    PS: What is RL BL?
    I guess so.

    ^^^ sale season happens twice a year in Europe, dates vary by country but maybe end of June or July and end of January time frame. Still think they would have pricing somewhat similar, it costs them nothing to make. Factory in morocco is interesting to see too if you ever head down there from spain

    Are their Sizes, Fits, Models consistent across the Globe? I might ask a friend to pack one up from Spain and send it to me after I check MY Size & Fit locally.

    Do they have any All Wool models left? I could not find any on their website.

    size and fit not sure but they have different collections depending on a country taste. most of their stuff are imitation of past runaway stuff so might want to dig the original.
