What are affordable alternatives to Brooks Brothers

10 things by which you can recognize a cheap suit

The other day I was sitting at the conference table with two men and two women. Both gentlemen wore a suit, of course. And one of the women asked me: “Do you know what kind of suit the two of them are wearing? How much do you think they cost? "

Hmmm. I had to do the practical test.

One man was wearing a suit from Suit Supply. I could tell immediately by the light, navy blue fabric and the shape of the collar flap - oversized, but in a fashionable way. He was in his mid-twenties and on the cutting edge of fashion, but he didn't spend his money on expensive Italian suits. The other guy was a bit older and wore a more conservative suit. The dark pinstripe suit looked a little too classy for "Brooks Brothers" and it also looked more Italian than British. I suspected “Canali”, but it was from “Brioni” - that kind of surprised me. But in general I was pretty close.

This conversation got me thinking. What are the quality features of a good suit anyway? Are these visible to the average person? Are they important and if so, to whom?

Before you read on, this article is not intended to denigrate inexpensive suits. I even own some cheap suits myself. I think an inexpensive suit can perfectly serve as a trendy item of clothing. For example, I bought this white linen suit for less than $ 100. With the help of appropriate changes, it looks much more noble. You know: It's not about what you wear, but how you wear it.

Now I come to the ten signs by which you can recognize a cheap suit.
