I'm looking at buying a suit. I'm roughly 41" around the chest and I wear size 34 pants. I've been looking online, and in my price range its looking like my options are either HM/topman/Zara or grailed. Im assuming it'd be smartest to get a 42 if I order online,and tailor it down. The question is if I should go with something off grailed, go for the fast fashion option or if there's anything better in the $300 - $350 range
What would you do?
just go to menswearhouse or something if you're on a tight budget, let them do the sizing. I think J crew and indochino suits are pretty nice too for the price.
About $500 should be the minimum you spend on a suit though - then you don't have to buy a new one for a decade.
Do not fucking get a fast fashion suit.
Please don't order a suit online, it will most likely not fit.
Do as >>10856199 said and go to a plae that specializes in suits and literally just tell them what you want and how much you want to spent.
That's what I did and the guy got me one that fit perfectly on his second try. Tailoring the pants is no problem but try to get the jacket right.
