    Default Suits

    How often are you buying them and how long do they last?


    Thinking of cowboyin up and ordering one of the completely tailored made and hand stitched gems.

    What say you? Any things in a suit you Moomba Maniacs have to have??

    Althought a bit unconventional, i like the pant lining to go all the way down. Typical is to have them lined through the butt and thigh. How long they last is completely dependent on how often you wear them, and how often they are cleaned. General rule for me since I got out of school was to have 10 suits to start, then replace two per year. Unless of course I needed to change sizes I never went with a completely tailor made suit. Always off-the-rack at Macy's or Nordstroms, with the necessary alterations of course. Tailor made I would guess would be 3x to 4x the cost on the low end. I bet they would fit so much nicer though.

    I went with a 3/2 mm suit. Didn't get it custom tailored bc I only use it a couple months out of the year.

    Mark, please tell me you saw all these smart arse comments coming?

    Go custom. Better materials, better fit, last longer and not always as expensive as a high end suit.

    I only wear a suit to weddings and job interviews, so I never buy one.

    You can get great rental rates on a suit at a Funeral Home
