    hey everybody,
    i am looking to buy two new suits.

    being that i havent had a suit since early highschool i am certainly due for one as i will be interviewing for jobs/internships as i enter my senior year of college.

    i have gotten by with slacks/shirts/ties etc but as of now i am insistent to get two new suits.

    my thoughts are leaning towards a dark suit and either a brown or navy suit.

    my problem is I really do not know where to go to find a respectable suit in a moderate price range. While i would love to pick up a sick nasty designer suit, i am indeed a college kid and i desperately need to save some money and not look like a beggar at the same time.
    as far as my size/shape goes, i am 5 11 and 195lbs, athletic, larger shoulders. 16 1/2 neck, 34x32 slacks.
    please offer up some recommendations, thanks a lot everybody.

    Im going to tagalong in this thread, as I too need suits and dont have a clue where to begin my search.

    I have a slimmer build (5'11" ~160lbs), so I need something slim. Im thinking 1 navy suit, and 1 grey suit. That should cover all the basics

    Im out of college (until I go back for law or med school), so I can spring for something a little pricier than the OP if it means I can wear it forever.

    Any recommendations? The only brand I can think of off the top of my head is Thick as Thieves. But I know jack shit about suits.

    This one from Club Monaco looks promising (and in the OP's price range), although I thought hemmed trousers were a no-no: http://www.valetmag.com/style/products/2009/inside-club-monacos-new-suit-080609.php/
