I came across a new double breasted suit from a reputable brand that is new for less then $100.

I'm tempted to get it-but I have big doubts about doing so despite the amount.

1. I feel like the style is too liberal and would be too much for day to day wear
2. I feel like i hav enough suits (for now)

Then again it seems like a double breasted suit is a must have somewhere down the line and I figure this is as cheap as it's going to get for a quality one. It looks sharp, so I figure why not pull the trigger?

Any thoughts?

Thank you in advance!

Given the reservations the OP expressed regarding this purchase and the potential pitfalls associated with such a "too good to be true" purchasing opportunity, I would walk away from the deal.

Stay away from those suits that are too liberal. High taxes and more regulations-that's all they want. Phooey.

Says who? It's a nice-to-have, but is it a "must-have"?

And I agree that without photos of the suit, the advice we give you can only be wobbly at best.

Without knowing the brand or vendor and seeing pictures we really don't have much to go on.

On the other hand, if the question is whether a double breasted suit that looks good would be a good addition to your suit wardrobe, I would say yes.

We need more information to know if this is the one.

It's a JB (Made in USA) from Mens Wearhouse.

I guess you have to decide if you're ever really going to wear it. As good a deal as it might seem, if it just sits in your closet and is never worn, then it doesn't matter what deal you got on it. I have clothes I bought for a good price that never get worn and they're just a constant reminder that I wish I had saved my money.

Amen to that...I and so many others herein, feel your pain! And the answer to the obvious next question, sadly is, "no we will never learn!" LOL. :(

I used to make the same mistake when I was younger. I'd get something just because it was a good deal without really thinking through how it would fit into my stylistic scheme. I ended up with a closet full of crap that has all gone to goodwill.

I'm definitely getting better about thinking ahead of time before I buy something. Many times before in the store, I'd see a good deal on something that looks nice sitting there on the table without thinking about how and when I would ever wear it. Now before I buy something I really try to think it through. Where would I wear this? Do I have anything that goes with it? As nice as it looks on the table, does it still look nice when it's on my body? After making many quick decisions on clothing, I'm starting to get smarter about my purchasing choices.
