So, the time in my life has come where I feel I need a suit. More specifically, one for interviewing in, and with some luck, to only be worn once or twice. I will be making the rounds tomorrow (Saturday) and checking things out and hopefully making a purchase. On to the questions!
1) Is it standard for the place you buy the suit to do required tailoring to make it actually fit you? Is this normally included in the cost of the suit or is it extra? I'm pushing 6'3", I have lifted weights and done various sports on and off for years. I'm built like a tank with a gut. "Standard" cuts of clothes do not fit me. Coats big enough to get my arms through are almost always too broad for my shoulders. Pants which fit my waist are tight around my thighs, with the exception of things like baggy cut levi's silver tabs or the like. My suit WILL need tailored.
2) What is the real difference between suits? For example, there's S&K Menswear. They have full suits for $75-$150. Then there's JoS. A. Bank. They have suits that are $700+. Normally this would be out of the question, but JoS. A. Bank has a sale this weekend - 50% off. On the one hand, I am not thrilled with the idea of paying $300-$400 for something I hope to wear once. On the other hand, perhaps this expensive ones are significantly more comfortable to wear. Perhaps the $100 suits are total shit, more like the crappy, uncomfortable tux you rent for prom. I have no idea.
