Buying a Suit

Where do you/have you guys gone? The position I am interviewing for is at our corporate office and I know shirt and tie are a must, probably a suit too at some times. I don't need Armani, but I don't want.......

+1... Mens wharehouse... Usually can pick up a decent suit for around $400. If it is for the initial interview only, you can try JC Pennys which would surfice, they usually have sales for $200. Macys is going to run you a bit more.

Both do the alterations for you..

I needed new suits, since mine were dated...Men's Warehouse is having a sale! Good people, not the best suits, but good enough for me. I dropped 2Gs there yesterday and have a frequent buyer cash back awards program, I'm getting a check for 3 bills in the next couple of weeks.

Sometimes goodbye is your second chance.

Von Maur: Great service. I bought a pimp Hugo Boss suit at Yorkville, they tailored it and UPSed it to me in Bloomington,IN within days, and no extra charge.

My other nice suit I got up at Gurnee Mills, Saks off fifth outlet. I picked up another Hugo Boss suit, normally going for 800-ish for 500. No tailoring included though.

+1 on Men's Warehouse it took a week for mine alterations
