Buying A Suit With Limited Funds
Buying a suit is hard on the newly formed professional. The reason for this is because many people do not know how to buy a professional wardrobe on a not so professional bank account.
Read this article and you will gain my years of experience in buying and selling suits. You will learn what brands to buy and where to get them. I will also give you many options to choose from so that you can make your own decisions.
The most economical option is to buy used clothing from a local vendor. Places to search are thrift stores, consignment shops, and yard sales. This is the most frugal way to buy used clothing because you do not have to pay for shipping. If you cannot find anything local your next decision should be to check some of the online auction sites.
Used clothing is economical and my number one choice for saving money. Having said this I do realize that not everyone is comfortable wearing clothes that have previously been worn. Also another drawback is the lack of a return policy on many used purchases.
The second option is to buy high quality suits that have not been discovered by the masses yet. Suits like Pronto Uomo, Steve Harvey, Mantoni, Perry Ellis, and Sean John are all fashionable and durable but lack the high price tag you would expect. Look to pay less than $500 for each of these suit brands.
The drawback to this option is that you will not have many suits in your wardrobe. Also, you may have to opt for shoes that are less comfortable than you are used to. This option is great for the man that does not have to wear suits everyday but less appealing to the professional.
An option that allows for a large amount of diversity without buying used clothing is to buy many lesser quality suits. This route requires that you buy more expensive accessories to augment the wardrobe. Buying some Tommy Hilfiger, Haggar, or Stafford suits can provide for a nice look and feel but often lacks the long term durability you may find in a more expensive brand.
Major disadvantages to this option are low durability, lower image, and the need to see a tailor more often. Sometimes it can be cheaper to pay more money upfront so that you do not have to worry about more costs down the road.
These three options give you a wide range of choices to make. Decide which option suits your needs the best before venturing forth. Remember to take into account what you will be wearing your suits for and how much your willing to spend before making your final purchases.
