I'm hot in my new designer suit

I went to this designer suit outlet in Manhattan, New York to buy a suit that I would have to wear once in awhile to events. I actually found the outlet by accident, taking a stroll on 5th Avenue with my girlfriend on vacation. It just so happened that I needed a suit, so we went in. The man outside passing flyers said that the outlet offered cheap designer suits, shirts and shoes. They advertised 40% off of the normal cost.  I went in not really knowing what kind of suit I wanted or what kind of material I was interested in.  I rarely wear a suit and have never ever bought a suit for myself. Don't get me wrong, I do have suits.  But they are my dads from the 70's. My girlfriend said I needed a suit, and me being the sucker that I am, allowed her to wrangle me into the suit outlet.
 

Because I did not know what I exactly wanted, we went to an outlet that had a wide range with more versatility than your average department store. The sales person (Tarek) that helped us first asked us what we were into.  I thought to myself, I like ice cream.  But suits, I have no idea!   He told us that it was best to try a bunch of different styles and types to see what I liked. Tarek brought out a lot of different styles for us to look at, including plaids (just not what I like), windowpanes, pinstripes (just not what my girlfriend is into), and solids.
 

Even though I tried a bunch of suits, the one I ultimately picked and bought was a classic black Michael Kors suit. The suit is formal, and black.  Tarek said it was an “essential piece for any man’s wardrobe”.  Who am I to argue with him over that!  I just thought it was very comfortable and that it made me look good.  I am pretty tall (6”1’) so the jacket sleeves did not need to be shortened. If we had needed tailoring though, they had a guy on hand that made alterations in person, but you do not have to use him.

We also found this kicking Ralph Lauren sude dinner jacket.  I ended up buying that one also. 
 

The outlet was good in general though because they had authentic designer suits for reasonable prices too.  I did not feel like I was getting hustled at all. Tarek person did not work on commission (we asked) and he was not pushy at all. He also was not judgmental when I told him I did not know much about suits or what I wanted.  He was very helpful and actually educational.  Overall, there was a great selection of everything and that the sales person was not just looking out for his own interest more than mine. Tarek was actually really quite comical and good natured.


If you are like me and have no idea what kind of suit to get, or in general what kind of 'nice clothes' to get, I would go and visit Tarek at Mens Suits on 5th, and talk to him.  He will hook you up and make you look 'pretty'
