Where the FUCK am I supposed to go to buy a suit?

Where the heck am I supposed to go to buy a suit? Do I go to a Nordstrom or Bloomingdale’s and just trust some person there to treat me right? tuxbell, the only source of knowledge I can rely on in this crazy world, sadly has rather little information on suits. I’m an adult with a job and I feel I should have a reasonable suit in my wardrobe for weddings or whatever other occasion.

    if you’re in a city there should still be at least one old tailor who makes suits.
    these days he’ll have a few off the rack he can alter for you but should still be able to offer bespoke suiting if he’s any good.

      yeah suitsupply is a decent suit especially since they will tailor it for you. It is a little overpriced but saves the headache of looking for a decent suit

      Quality is mid as their shit is made in china but I don’t think it’s overpriced if you buy their cheapest suit.

      They will give you a slim, mediterranean look so you can count on it fitting.

    I went into the local Hugo Boss and got one off the rack. I’m an ideal body type so it fits very well, and I never bothered to get it altered

    Where ever you can find em just get it tailored after
    You can tailor a big suit but you can’t with a size that’s smaller

    Depends on your budget, just buy one off the rack and have it tailored. If you just want a suit and don’t care about anything else go to suitsupply, they should have tailor in store.

    Don’t buy a suit in advance for a hypothetical future situation. Unless it’s in the very near future you must likely need to have it altered again to look perfect anyway. An independent menswear store will have decent staff to help you pick a suit out and then alter it for you within a few days. Having a suit made from scratch is kind of silly unless you plan on wearing it daily or it’s for an important event like a close family member’s wedding or a new job.

        you hecked it anon. any suit you buy will need to be tailored.
        i’d say borrow or rent some bullshit for the event. take your time picking and tailoring your suit. a good one will last a decade at least

            What would that happen?

            >within a few days.
            a bought my last suit a month and a half before an event and even that was too tight.
            they didn’t have my size on the rack and had to order it in.
            then of course they still needed time to alter it.

            Ok, that’s not the norm though. The alternative is he has a suit custom made now for some potential future event by which time his measurements could be totally different. Bizarre thing to do.

    save some money
    go to a good mens tailor and ask them to make a suit
    pick fabrics, cuts, accents
    it’s not that hard

    I’ll be coming back in a year or two to make a post just like this. I basically want a suit that would be fully /fashion/ approved, I don’t wanna look like a noob or a tryhard

    I got a suit from a Nordstrom’s I needed for a funeral recently and it was relatively painless. They have on-site tailors that should waive any labor if you purchase it there. I’ve personally had good luck.
    I got a Emporio Armani suit from Neiman Marcus recently online by just waiting till it went on sale and getting it 50% off.
