QUESTION: Hi, I have a really important presentation and interview in a week.
Where in the city, can I get a really good suit custom made to my body size in around 300 dollars? Please suggest the places you have tried and have worked best - if you had a bad experience, share that too

  1. You want a custom-made suit for a week from now?!

  2. For $300, you get the low end of ready made suits. Customs start at $1,500. Go to Stars in fairview mall and try a few of their suits out to see which ones fit you best. I am 5'7" with broad shoulders and I like Sean Johns the best. Roughly $200.

  3. lololol 300 for a custom suit are you shitting me... You might be able to get a half decent jacket that's off the rack for 300. You'll still need pants, a dress shirt, a tie, dress belt, cufflinks (pro tip:it's not a good dress shirt if it doesn't need cufflinks) and shoes. All in all probably run you about 700 if you cheap out on the shoes.

    1. That's a joke right? Dress shirts have different styles. A cufflink shirt is a more formal dress shirt. I have many shirts, some cufflink and some button and the majority of the better shirts I have are button simply because they are more practical and I wear them a lot more. You should really avoid consistently wearing cufflinks.

    2. The guy who made my suit at Harry Rosen didn't chose a shirt with cufflinks. I looked around, and no one else had cufflinks. I think they are out right now.

    3. 4.a 4 here. If you're trying to impress and you're going out of your way to look nice, you're going to want cufflinks. Obviously not all of my dress shirts are french cut.

    4. @4a. Have a look at combination cuffs, they can button close or take cuff-links.

      It is very convenient.

    5. 4. I was pretty much just responding to your "pro tip" which was one of the worst tips I have ever read (just because a shirt isn't french cut doesn't mean it isn't good). And for an interview you want to impress with business attire. French cut shirts are formal shirts, rarely seen in the workplace. Mind you, not all french cut shirts are completely formal, so I don't want to be interpreted as pigeonholing all french cut shirts.

  5. There is a place at st. jacob's market that has good deals on off the shelf stuff.

    You might be able to get a suit for that much from them. They also do alterations, but it takes a week.

  6. Not in a week, but www.indochino.com is relatively close to your price range...

  7. So many rich commie Asians on here. OP, don't waste money on a custom suit. Just go find one that fits off the rack. You can get a decent suit (jacket and pants) for $200. If you think money makes it look nice you're an idiot, just have some taste for what looks good and know how to wear it and look confident in one. That goes much farther than the $1000 some dirty rich Asians are mentioning.

    1. 8 again

      Tips:
      Don't let your pocket pucker,
      Don't let your fly flap pucker either
      Sit down in it, socks should never show!
      Ensure it has a medium break
      Get them to add a permanent crease
      Get measured properly and have it tailored in store
      Get a two button jacket

    2. I let my fly flap pucker so they know I want a big compensation package to pair with my other package

    3. A $200 suit is shit compared to most $1000 suits. I don't care where you bought it or what... You can't get a well sewn suit for 200. - a white as fuck guy you dumb motherfucker

    1. Socks will show unless you are wearing pants that go over your shoes, just make sure to wear dress socks, that match what you are wearing.

  11. Why spend more than $300 for one suit that will only land you a $50K/year job? Stupid investment.

  12. Please just remember to only do up the top button.
