Best Places to Buy Men’s Suits

Sometimes there are too many choices, and the choices need to be narrowed down- like where to buy your suit. First off, there are many qualified contenders, but each store has different perks that may sway you to purchase from them.

The Most Classic/Traditional and Best Service: Nordstrom
The Most Stylish and Best Variety: Bloomingdales
Best Value: K&G
Good Prices and Good for the Everyday Man: Joseph A.Bank

Classic Burberry Suit from Nordstrom

This is where I learned about the details of men’s fashions and styles. If you want superb one on one personal service to help choose a suit, then Nordstrom is the only place you want to go. They only carry the best brands and they have some of the best tailors in the business. Nordstrom does not have tons of promotional sales or coupons, they have a half-yearly and a anniversary sale that easily trumps the sales of all other retailers. Those sales, that are usually during the summer, are the best times to buy suits, shirts, ties, shoes, belts, pocket squares, and anything else. Featured brands include: Canali, Hugo Boss, Joseph Aboud, and many more.

Bloomingdales
If you want the most stylish and most trendy suits, then Bloomingdales is perfect for you. The store offers a wide variety of styles and brands including: Armani, Purple Label, Hugo Boss, and many more. Bloomingdales, known for its brown bags, has sales throughout the year and is great place for anyone on a reasonable budget or who has thousands to splurge. This is usually my first recommendation for someone searching for a suit.

K&G
If you are on a very tight budget and looking to spend $100-$200 on a suit, then K&G is your godsend. K&G is a warehouse so the store has a plethora of suit offerings- every color, style, and cut. K&G carries the Steve Harvey wide-leg suits, Jones New York athletic-fit suits, italian-made suits like Zenetti, and even 3 piece-suits by Sean John. They have a wide variety, but it’s hard to find a teir-1 suit in K&G, you have to really search and you’ll only find a few to choose from.

I’m sure you’ve seen their commercials and advertisements- Joseph A. Bank is known for its sales. This store is good for the average guy on the search for his first suit. They have helpful attendants and have many traditional styles and brands to choose from.

*Other Notable Stores: Brooks Brothers and Men’s Warehouse

Every man should own atleast one suit. Not one that you got from your dad or brother, but one that you bought specifically for you and your body. I also recommend all men to have atleast one quality designer-type suit. A good suit can easily be spotted and definitely speaks tons about who you are- it says that you are serious and ready to succeed, not to mention that you have great taste!

  1. Try the new men’s cologne from NoBs Alpha Male, called Fighter. Get a FREE SAMPLE by emailing your USA mailing info to customerservice@nobsalphamale.com. Or visit http://www.nobsalphamale.com and purchase a bottle with a 30day money back guarantee. It’s the perfect balance of marine, citrus, and woods notes. Smells incredible, but retains masculinity.

  2. What do you think about H&M suits? I have about 5 of them, 3 slim fit and 2 regular fit (discontinued). It's so rare for me to find suits that fit the way H&M suits fit me and for the price H&M always has me going back. Do you have any recomendations on other suits with the Italian slim fit cut that are at a reasonable price?

  3. Well these are some great choices for suits and if you dont own at leats one suit then your real behind in the game. My overall first choice would have to be Bloomingdales, followed by Joseph A. Bank. And when it the time comes and i'm a little hard for cash the K&G is definitly the spot. Another is S&K they are small but great on help with the suit that will impress on that interview that came up on short notice. But these are some great tips…

  4. Just discovered your blog. Very nice with some great tips. You’re pretty much on point with your decriptions regarding suits. I have had my share of buying suits since coming out of school and entering the “Work” world. I’ve bought my suits at higher end stores such as Barneys and Brooks Brothers. I saved and used credit to get the suits from those stores because of the fit and quality. I also wore my suits for long periods so the cost per use was driven down by the suits length of service. Hence the reason I will suggest getting a custom made suit. Over time a custom suit will become cheaper. A friend recently intorduced me to a custom tailor in NYC who does not charge an arm or leg or both. The fabric selection is outstanding (it’s about the fabric) The prices are very reasonable. The fit, comfort and style (that you bring to create your suit) is prety priceless. The ego gets an extra boost knowing your rocking a suit made for you (your name is sewn into the suit).

    If you can’t do the custom suit, then make sure you like the feel of the fabric from the department store suit. Always ask questions about the fabric: What is the fabric? Is it weaved tight or loose? Is the fabric pure of bended? Utilize the tailor at the store to make your suit fit you. Most men of color will need to have the waist adjusted in and the thighs adjusted out. Rock your suit when it’s done.

  5. There is a website called indochino that is all custom made suits you just enter in your measurements. brilliant site
