I agree with Peak. Finding the matching trousers for a suit jacket is impossible. Sure, the fabrics may look similar at first glance but there will be noticeable differences, such as the type of the fabric, variations in color and pattern. In fact, you could take two suits from the same maker of the same type of fabric and pattern and they will still not be a perfect match. A suit is a suit because the jacket and pants are made of the exact same fabric.Thank both of you for your responses. I do believe, (with my very limited knowledge of suits) that the H. Freeman does feel "nicer" in quality. However, Pine, your statement to scrap it hurts. I know it is not a suit, because it doesn't have matching pants, however, I know there has to be a store somewhere that has the same pattern or color (If fact I saw a store in a nearby city that had pictures (SJ Haggard) in OKC that had a picture of a kid wearing a suit that looked exactly the same as my H. Freeman, so I know they have to exist. I know it would be a time sink to try and track down a pair of pants, but unfortunately, that is what I have more of, more time, and less money at this moment and if I could spare having to throw the jacket out (maybe instead I could wear it with something else, like jeans or other contrasting pants as a casual outfit?) I just hate throwing stuff away!
Anyway, the whole reason I even went down this route, instead of buying a legit, nice suit, is I need it for my friend's wedding (I am a guest) and don't want to sink 600-1000 into a suit yet because I am in the midst of losing weight. I have lost a ton of weight over the past year, around 100 pounds, and I have 20 pounds more to go until I am at my goal weight. I don't want to get measured and have a suit made with 20 pounds left to lose, but needed the jacket for the wedding, so that was my dilemma. Someday, hopefully in the next 6 months, I will go and get a true legit suit, which I do look forward to and will treat as a goal for becoming a much healthier weight. Anyway, thanks for your information guys. I will do what you suggested Woofa and give a few pics of both jackets and see what you think. I'll post later. Thanks again.
I understand your concern about spending too much only to not have the suit fit within a few months, but you can get a used suit at a super low cost if you know your measurements and do a little shopping around.
