Check out the latest excellent suit I just purchased from Banana Republic.
Man, I love this suit! First of all the style is perfect. It is your basic 2 button single breast 2-piece suit. It’s dark gray pattern with a window pain texture that is accented by light gray and black lines.
The suit is a great because it allows me all kinds of flexibility. I can fancy it up with a nice purple shirt like the one in my latest IG pic, purple not your color? Cool you can just as easily add some pop with a pink, blue or even a subtle read or maroon colored shirt, the really cool thing is this suit easily allows for the shirt to have a pattern or not you will look really great either way.
But … wait for it … you can also conservative up this suit rather than a colored shirt, instead go with a plain-jane white or your basic (I work in a bank) blue shirt. You know you have one.
The suit looks great with a tie or no tie too.
I know, I know your asking what about the fit man isn’t that part of looking great ?
Ok you got me, yeah the suit has to fit no getting around that but that doesn’t have to mean a bespoke suit for $2500.00. Look, I’m definitely not the slimiest dude in the world, so I ordered a 46 jacket and a 40 pants. Jacket fit was dead on but the pants were a big, so I took them to my dry cleaners and she took them in an inch or so in the waist and took care of the length too. Bam! Perfect pants and jacket, twenty more bones; So worth it.
So with this suit, purchased for less than 300 bones, I basically get a 4 different potential looks. That is awesome flexibility and amazing value.
Now, I probably will not wear this suit to a job interview, or a wedding where I want to look immaculate. But it is a great utility suit, well made, it affords me a ton of flexibility and it was a great price.
This is the way you build a nice affordable wardrobe, that looks great and still impresses, and the money you saved you can spend on shoes, never enough shoes.
