I've never checked out the Express suits before but damn! I love Express, these suits will be worth checking out, as I'll be in the market for one as well.

This isn't bad, I'd have to see it in person for fit and what the "wool" content is.

<<< has a hard time believing anything could make solly look fat.


If this is your pattern, I encourage you to get the most traditional style suit you feel comfortable in. Avoid buying something that's currently fashionable and you'll be able to wear it for years to come. There's a trade off in that you may not feel like you're wearing the hippest style right now.

Guys that wear suits a lot can get what's "in" cuz they'll have to replace the suit about the time its gone out of fashion anyway.

I suggest a two button, dark grey or dark blue solid. No skinny slacks, no wacky lapels or slim fit jacket. Just a normal, conservative style. It will serve you longest and be the most versatile for weddings, funerals, interviews, etc.

Get your old suits tailored for much cheaper. Unless they are just hideous suits you have

i go to kohls. i've found that while the suit cut is important, some people just look better in a suit than others.

They have dress pants/shirts and ties at our store. That's as close as you'll get.

I'm not sure if it depends on the store, or maybe you have to order online.

You can buy a suit at Men's Warehouse or JA bank and then have them cut it in to look european.

Or you can be an e46F baller and have your parents buy it.

If you have an outlet mall nearby you can hit up Brooks Brothers or Nautica. Some outlets even have Ralph Lauren/Polo stores. You won't be getting their top-line suits but the quality won't be horrible and the prices should fit your budget.

Good luck! Then go buy some $300 shoes.

It might be a bit more, but not too much- you can get a brooks brothers suit from their essentials line and have it made to your measurements for pretty cheap.

edit-- actually, now I remember that I bought them on a 30% off sale, which made it like a $450 suit. But still, great price for a made to measure suit.

At that price point the first thing I would do is look for some deals and brooks brothers or J Crew. I just got a really nice suit at BB for $395 with free alterations (there were a lot and we went through 4 rounds of them before it looked how I wanted). I would have paid more overall if I had bought a $300 suit and paid for all the alterations out of pocket. What are you a 42R I'm guessing? I'll do a little research and send you anything I find.

I honestly have no idea what size I am right now. Thanks for the help though.
