does it have to be a bespoke? if not zegna, zanella, canali, etc you can shop around for and get minor alterations done to them.
its funny cause i bought my first nice suit and i only used it once for the interview and is now sitting in my closet. dress code is casual so i just wear a nice chino, dress shirt w/ tie, and dress shoes and done. if i knew this, i shoulda got me a cheap tommy suit from macys for $300 compared to $800 at hugo.
nice thanks man, I thought I saw that thread before, but couldn't dig it up again.
I'm very much expecting the suit to sit in a closet for most of its life, but I do enough interviews and other random business formal events that I figure I should probably have one.
Plus my frame is a tall one, most suits don't work quite that well in them.
