Suits: NYC

Recommended Posts

Completely random, but I need a suit. Are there good places in NY to get a reasonably priced, new suit that doesn't look like crap? And will these places actually help you with this instead of making you feel like a complete idiot? Men's Wearhouse, I'm not sure I could bear to visit again.

Here's some suit ideas:

-Theory- They do really nice suits that can cost a pretty penny but are made for slimmer/athletic built individuals. These are the only suits that I tend not to have to get tailored as they fit perfect. NY has to have a Theory store but if not guaranteed you can find them out there at Nordstroms, Bloomingdales (they will be the most expensive here), or online if you know your size.

-Hugo Boss- They have some cool slim fit suits but once again can be pricey.

Both of the above are worth the money! Hugo and Theory staff tend to be very fuc'n helpful so ask the questions. Oh yeah Nordstroms staff can be cool too.

Here are some cheaper ones that I enjoy:

-J Crew- they do some cool summer suits (sheersucker and a bad ass brown/tan one)

-Banana Republic- If you can find their outlet stores you can score a suit for as little as $150 or less.

Just a side note that if you want one to work year around get grey, black, navy, and some browns. I have a suit obsession and hope this helps? If not, feel free to ask more questions......

It does! Was also checking out My Suit, terrible name, but looks decent. But I guess if I'm gonna get a suit, I might as well go whole hog.. Brooks Brothers anyone?

You might as well invest! From a perspective of wearing them, you can tell the difference between a well made/tailored suit and one that is not. Brooks Brothers has nice ones but yet to buy one there as I try to find nice ones for cheaper due to $$$. For those in the Bay Area at the Great Mall in Milipitas you can score designer suits for very very cheap and sometime buy one get one free at Off Saks and other stores. Three pieces and bow ties are sick but haven't done it yet......

As a man with more suits than necessary I might be able to offer some advice. (NYC area as well!).

What is your price range?

Will you wear it everyday?

What season?

What type of event? (Work, dinner, funeral, all-purpose?)

J. crew. the "ludlow" suit. slim and classic, awesome construction. buy it, get it tailored to your fit (always tailor a new suit) and enjoy! i have it in light italian wool, charcoal grey.

Slayer, I could probably spend about 5, wouldn't be for every day, and I'd prefer it to be lightweight. Gonna get worn this summer and gonna be a godfather in it, among other things.

Mario, funny, was looking at the Ludlow styles yesterday, either in charcoal or that light gray. Stopped in the men's shop the other weekend to see about tuxes, too, ha.

    • HE'S GOT THE BUUUUUUUGGGG!!! 😁 @minisoda not sure if you've let us know who the artist is yet, but feel free to share! check out their prior work and see what they're into. if they usually do traditional colors, they might prefer to stick to that aesthetic. if they do some crazy shit, they might be open to new ideas.  i think adding an olive branch in an open talon would look a bit strange. during your next shading and color session, bounce your addition and background ideas off your artist and see what they think. in the end, you're wearing it and they're doing it, so your two opinions count way more than us shmucks.🤓
    • If it is scarring what else could it be? Could it be that the ink is too thick ??
    • Laser removal is not an eraser. You'd still faintly see the tattoo. If it is scarring, then yes, you'd still see the scar, too.
