    I want to invest in a business suit as every now and then (atleast once a month) i will have a formal meeting or something where i have to dress up. I don't own an actual suit but so far i've just used a sports coat, white button up collared shirt and some khakis. i know i look ridiculous in that get up so i want to change it. I need to find some ideas on a look (pics would help a lot). i want a suit i can wear to a meeting and be taken seriously but i don't want to look too uptight i guess. i dont want to look nerdy i think is what i'm getting at. i would like to look a little fashionable in it. and some suggestions on brands and where to go to find it.

    I'm going to pick up the four suits I bought the other day from the tailor today after work. I'll post pics of them when I get home.

    How much are you looking to spend?

    Jos A Bank is very affordable, nice, and professional. So is Brooks Brothers.

    Saks 5th Ave outlet has some pimp ass stuff in that price range.

    slim cut, 4 button would be fashionable but will look dated quicker. 3 button is a good choice if you want a suit that you can look good in for many years.

    3 button - classic
    4 button - more trendy

    :cool:

    I would definitely like to keep the suit around and use it for as long as possible. Are there any magazines that i should look at that would give me some insight on what looks good with suits. I'm thinking if i could just find a bunch of pictures, i could probably piece something together to my liking. something like GQ maybe? (I'm completely out of the clothing/fashion loop.)

    ...my ex spends a lot on suits. But then again, he and his father only have suits made.

    Eh, 2 button - classic, 3 button - more trendy.

    i hate 4 button suits. I would NEVER wear one for business.

    2 button is classic, but also is an "older" look. 3 button is still classic style, just more current. 3 button doesn't really go out of style, plus they just look better IMO.

    well, it looks like 2 button is now back "in", based on everything I'm seeing in GQ the last couple months :)
