    We both agreed he would probably get a suit for this special occasion. Now that we're 75 days from our date, he has agreed to go shopping for one. We went to Jos A Bank, but it became clear that he needs an "athletic" cut (shoulders and chest wide). He's going to try Men's Warehouse and I think we should go into Brooks Brothers. 

     

    Finding a men's suit is a whole new shopping experience for me. Any suggestions on where to go or what to look for in a suit for proper fit would be appreciated!

    are places like Macy's out? They are having a sale on their linen suits right now. Brands like Tommy Bahama, Calvin Klein and Kenneth Cole.

      Thanks AllieH, We tried Macys one weekend but it was probably too crowded because there was absolutely no customer service. We will try again.

        Have you looked at Studio Suits online (studiosuits.com)?  There is an entire thread devoted to them (on BDW) and most people are very pleased with their product and pricing!  They have a great deal for linen suits.

          We purchased my FI suit from Jos A Bank's they stay cool tropical blend suits on sale for $197 with and additional 25%.  So we ordered him one on a Saturday and it arrived on Tuesday. It is a really light suit and nicely made.  They also have a great return policy you can return it for up to a year and get refunded as long as the suit has not been altered. But we won't be returning his :)

            I made a trip to Macy's and bought two Perry Ellis 3-piece herringbone linen suites for $168 each (one for Fi and Best Man).  It was marked down by 30% and they had a special offer over the weekend were they took off an additional 25% off for suit purchase over $100. Oddly enough the price in stores was cheaper than the online price by about 10-15% depending on which suit you're interested in. My Fi likes the fit, just needs to hem the pants and I think he's decided to not wear the blazer so he doesn't bake in the sun.

             

            My Fi wanted to order the the Hawaiian grey linen suit from studio suits, but we got nervous about a purchasing a custom suit made in a different country with no return policy. Plus the Macy's option was cheaper.

              My fiance had the same issue.  He def needed athletic cut also.  There was no way slim cut was going to fit him...We bought his at Nordstrom.  We ended up geeting ivory but they also had it available in a light oatmeal color which was very nice.  I think it came to about $400.


              46 booked and counting!

                He wound up going back to Macy's and finding one he liked. http://www1.macys.co...-xx.esn_results It's Kenneth Cole Tan Cotton Suit in case the link doesn't work. When we picked it up it clearly had not been pressed, so it was rather wrinkled. He was surprised that cotton would wrinkle. (SIGH) My dad and brother (best man) got suits from JC Penny http://www.jcpenney....d=SearchResults

                 

                I found a website on how James Bond picks out his suits and that if they fit you look better... so advice from someone else worked better than hearing it from me!
