Fused. Not legit.
im sorry i was confusing...your "Superbowl" was the Redskins losing since you know that the Ravens cant win it all.
Got 2 suits from menswarehouse for 399.
Sale tomorrow. $27 for cashmere sweaters.
Montgomery Custom Tailors. Montgomery Mall. Not cheap. But real good.
J. Crew Factory suit on sale for $158 today. If you're in the market for a cheap suit, you can't do much better than this one. I get compliments on mine whenever I wear it. Seems to be a decent size selection too.
A wear-to-work essential beloved for its sleek lines, tailored silhouette and slightly shorter fit. Crafted in our famously polished wool blend, it pairs perfectly with our matching suit pant (and looks equally dapper with denim). Wool/poly.Dry clean.Import.

Well, I mean, that’s what it is. I doodoo and then listen to Katy Perry.
anyone own CT suits? are they more of a european fit/shape or are they similar to Jos a bank? looks like they have some pretty good deals online.
I usually buy my suits at Nordstroms, when they are on sale. Went over the holiday to see what they had for the semi-annual sale, looking for a classic navy blue suit. They had nothing - the selection was awful. Very limited. Very disappointed.
I went to the CT store in Dupont a couple of months ago and was not impressed with their suit selection. very few available and what was there was not inspiring. The salespeople didn't seem to know anything about them either. shirts were a different story.
I love CT shirts. But the word about their suits is that "they are a shirt maker...why buy a suit from a shirt maker?"
Buy 1 get 3 free sale this weekend. Advertised as last of the season. I don't even know when the suit season is. But, I've been stockpiling gift cards for the past few yrs. A while ago I went to take advantage of this sale but bailed when, after tailoring, the suits would have cost $800. My in-laws were there so ever since, they've been giving me gift cards for my birthday and Xmas.
Is the smart play to get the Signature series suits and get them tailored someplace else?
I had never shopped at Joseph A Bank before but I checked it out today. Zero chance I would ever buy anything there. Didn't like the merchandise at all and the pricing reeks of scam.
Bought a suit from them last week and I think it looks pretty good but I'm not in an industry where they inspect your labels on a weekly basis.
classlessthug: I have too much on my plate to worry about the fact that my junk intimidates some needle D undergrad.
Needed a suit for a wedding on Friday but instead of listening to the advice here I went to MW for a 2 for 1 sale and that place was turrible unless you want to buy Sean John or Ecko suits. Salesman was really weird too.
Ended up at Macy's getting a Tommy Hilfiger suit for pretty cheap.

If you're doing an off the rack suit: Suitsupply and don't look back.
I just picked up a MTM suit from Suitsupply. I have a weird body shape that makes OTR suits difficult to find that can even be tailored for me, but this suit seems pretty money. Going to wear it a few times and see how it works, and then probably order some additional suits from them.
Have heard this as well. Plan on making my next purchase from there.
As far as tailors are concerned, I've been referred to Georgetown Alterations Express Services on Wisconsin and it's been pretty great so far. Fast and cheap, with pretty quality results. Don't let the walk upstairs scare you.
How often are you supposed to dry clean suits? I'm a sweaty bastard, so i'll usually take them in after a handful (5-6) of wearings, but a friend of mine who seems to know what he's talking about told me I should be dry cleaning about once a year, unless theirs a specific reason too, and that letting them air out after wearing should be sufficient for normal usage. Is that correct or is he full of shit?
I don't sweat that much, and I am in the 4-6 category. Do you press or steam more often? I would rather a buy a suit a little more often then walk around with pants that stink. We are men, even if you are not a sweater...walk a few blocks in summer and your balls gather some moisture. That don't smell too good.
That's basically how I look at it, I don't think it matters how much you let something air out, frumunda cheese is frumunda cheese and it's not going anywhere. What are good steamers? I don't wear suits every day, but wear trousers and sport coats pretty much daily, I've heard that the handheld steamers are garbage.
Just bought two more. So embarrassed...not really.
The key is fit. Higher quality suits hang a little better and move more fluidly, but a Banks suit when it's tailored isn't the fashion taboo most make it out to be.
There's literally no reason not to do this, right? Buy 1, get 2 free, and they'll donate one to a returning veteran. I need to wear a suit about once every two weeks for work, and I just need some variety. I'm not the big shot, big firm type attorney. I'm the state government, water sandwiches variety, so that's gotta be good enough, right?

I was considering this too especially since I have been accumulating gift cards from JAB. I only wear a suit once, maybe twice a month but get tired of wearing the same one or two all the time.
let's talk about pocket squares
what goes well with various colors, patterns, shirts, ties, suits etc.
Pocket squares go in the same category to me as bow ties and cufflinks. If the rest of your look is together, I think it's something fantastic which can definitely set you apart. However, if your jacket is too big, pants too baggy, etc. it can make you look like a guy who thinks he is stepping his game up when really he doesn't have the basics down.
If you're going to go that route though, I think a color that pulls off of a secondary color in your shirt or tie is probably best, otherwise you run the risk of looking like a kid at prom or corny groomsman.
