Jos A Banks Suit Quality?
I was looking on eBay and seen a regular $950 marked down to $100 and the seller had great reviews on every suit purchase (thousands of reviews) so I jumped to purchase it. With shipping and tax it came up to $170 which is $30 under budget for the suit. I couldn't find any locally for anywhere near that price, it costs $300 for just a jacket and he wears a 52 jacket so it is difficult to find his size.
I shared this with a wedding forum and they jumped on me saying that they have horrible quality suits and young people shouldn't even wear suits like that… so I did more research online. I realize that they mark up their suits more than they should so their discounts look impressive so I didn't get an amazing steal, but I think I did pretty good to get a full suit for $170. I also read that they apparently only are good for larger men (which he is) but that they need a lot of tailoring to look half decent…
Any feedback or experience with these suits would be great because I really feel stupid for jumping on it.
He did try other kinds of suits at our mall and that was how we figured out he needed a 52 jacket. Regardless, as long as it fits and looks half decent I don't see how you could argue with $170.
