Suits Me

Aug 19, 2007

Ninety Five Percent of the time I work from home and wear extra casual clothes.  The other five percent of the time, I travel for business to trade shows and various events around the country and have to transition to more formal wear.

Since I don't have to really mess around with casual business clothes, I tend to dress up a bit more when I have the opportunity or need.

I've noticed a recent trend at a number of the malls in the Atlanta area.  The men's clothing stores tend to go through cycles that don't really help shoppers.  First, they tend to sit on out dated styles a bit too long.  The recent styles get their prices inflated significantly and tend to be a bit of a rip off.  Plus, when I'm buying a suit, I have to get it tailored anyway.

So I am taking more to the idea of purchasing clothes online through sites like Shopping.com.  Going through the internet I have a better chance of finding clothes that I like.  Since I typically have them tailored anyway, the exact fix out of the box (as opposed to off the shelf) is not important at all.

I was looking at some of the Hugo Boss wool suits and thinking that I needed to refresh by wardrobe a bit for this winter.  Last year, I went with a few wool suits from a high end and trusted suit maker in the Atlanta area that I will not name.  For whatever crazy reason, all the suits ended up with holes in them by the spring.  Apparently, there is something like a worm or something that gets into wool and over time they eat through the clothing.

I wasn't too happy about that and lost a lot of money in suits, but it has reaffirmed my opinion that shopping online for suits is probably the way to go.
