    Suits and non-Iron shirts.

    I had to get my first suit last week for a job interview this Wednesday. I've never worn or owned a suit before so this whole looking nice thing is new to me. A few things I noticed;

    1) I look damn good in a suit. This comes as no suprise to me, because I look damn good in general.

    2) Suits are made for fat people (general population). The guy at the store had to give me a huge ****ing jacket just to fit my shoulders. Even though they took the waist in, it could still come in much much more.

    3) I have no ****ing clue how to tie a tie. I had to take a test in fire school where we had to tie a total of 20 different knots blindfolded. I got 20 out of 20 in half of the allowed time. However, give me 3 hours, a step by step picture of how to tie a tie, and the thing still looks like ****.

    4) Suits are expensive.

    5) I wish Carhartt made suits. They would look nice as well as being functional. They would have a hammer loop and many utility pockets on the pants. This way I could wear my suit to work.



    This is where I need help. The shirt had a large band around it that said 'NON-IRON'. How the **** do you get the wrinkles out?

    haha...non-iron means it won't wrinkle. You can iron it. After washing it, it should come out of the dryer without wrinkles

    They had suits starting at $135, but they looked like crap and I really want to make a good impression. My suit cost $300, and with shoes, a shirt, a tie, and tailoring, it came to just over $500. Expensive, but well worth it if I get through the interview.

    if you weigh under 120lbs they aren't.


    for guys like myself, buying a suit is ridiculous

    Men's Wearhouse or Mom's Whorehouse?

    I've never seen that sale and I love the place.

    Suits are silly expensive but worth it there.

    Pay for tailoring once and it's free for life.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    /agree with every one on Mens warehouse, I have about 7 suits and 5 sport coats all from there...they are great for bigger guys.

    however they arent cheap... expect to pay $350+ for a decent suit with alterations.

    Their dress shirts are second to none though and GREAT service

    I got it from Moore's. It's really the only suit place I know of.

    I don't know what kind of suit it is....... It's black and has pin stripes. I just walked in and told the guy what I needed the suit for and he set me up.
