    New Suit for Job Interviews



    Which suits are typically the most bang for your buck at Macy's? I don't have time to take the indochino plunge or the money to go check out higher end department stores. I would like to spend ~ $500 dollars on the suit and shoes and see plenty of DKNY, etc. on sale for about 350. I am 6'1" with broad shoulders, tiny chest, and feel uncomfortable with how low pant rises seem to have become lol. I will be going to the store later tonight or tomorrow to see for myself, but figured I'd see if you guys could steer me away or closer to brands you think would work. Solid navy is probably the safest bet obviously. Wonder if it would be too sartorial to get some light brown shoes for it? Then again, it seems much harder to find an affordable pair in those colors vs. black.


    Anyway...what do you guys think....DKNY, Tommy, Calvin, maybe Alfani?

    Do you have any outlets near you? I just picked up a solid navy Theory suit for $360 (retail price $900) at Off 5th.


    This weekend should be good time to pick up clothes since most stores will have their Memorial Day weekend sale.


    Do you have preference on the fit?

      2nd Nix's outlet idea. They are giant minefields, but if you pay attention to the materials (all real fibers such as linen, cotton, or wool) you should be fine. Banana Republic, J Crew Factory, and many others are bound to have big mark downs.

        Macy's sales are great for suits. I picked up an Alfani slim fit for $220 during a one day sale. There were also Hilfiger and Ralph Lauren total comfort suits for $200. I would recommend printing out the in-store coupon and trying some suits on

          I do have one, but it's about 2 hours away. Tomorrow is my last day off...do you think there will be a big difference in prices between Friday and Saturday?

            Nordstrom Rack is another great place to look for a nice suit in that price range. Styles can be a little hit or miss depending on your size and the store you visit, but the both the prices and the designers are solid.
