There was a thread on suit a while back.. I know, I know.


Thing is I'm a lean and mean 24 year old. I'm not happy with my Men's Wearhouse suits... Need something more modern/trim. Any suggestions?

Mr. Jones, if you are lean, an Express suit is the way to go. Especially if you have narrow shoulders. They are designed around Express/Abercrombie models.



I'm lean, but have broad shoulders, so it won't work for me.

You're one of those "Metro-sexuals", aren't you?  C'Mon, admit it.  You have the clear, glossy man-fingernails, you smell better than my wife, you spend 60 bucks on haircuts, and your bathroom cabinet looks like the counter at Macy's.

There's nothing wrong with that. You haven't lived until you've had a good mani/pedi...

Not even close, I have a military haircut (which my wife does in the bathroom), I don't actually have a bathroom cabinet, b/c my wife's stuff takes up all of the space. And I don't even wear suits most of the time. Only at court, for group presentations or for formal events.



However, I used to date a girl who worked at Express and would constantly buy me clothes. Wasn't my style, since I'm a little rough around the edges.   But I learned a lot about "fit" and "cut".



The only jewelry I wear is my wedding ring, I shave only once every couple of days and I tend to dress like House. My shoes are inexpensive, my clothes are wrinkled.



And I am one of the few people who has no scent. I don't use deodorant. Or cologne. In fact, when I do shave, I use soap.



I'm the guy at the regional meetings that never wore a suit.



I was also the guy in the military whose patches were hand-sewn and not very well, who never shined his boots (when we had to shine them. really polish is just for protection, you only need to put a little bit on). I pushed the limits of the shaving policy and wore the same uniform five days a week, no matter how much I sweated in it.



I might not even be human (so says my wife). But I did get a pedicure once with my little girl.

Not sure where you live, but I bought a really nice Burberry suit from Saks Off 5th Avenue for $500, marked down from $1,300.  I have also purchased several suits from Nordstrom Rack in the $400-$500 range that sell in the Nordstrom stores for $900 or so.  And I have found great deals on Hugo Boss suits at their outlet store, paid around $400 for a $900 suit.
 
I prefer heavy wool suits with a thick tie and a pocket square to compliment it. 
 
I don't have to wear suits, but I really like wearing them.  I hate Men's Wearhouse and would never personally purchase a suit from Express.

actually, of the three suits I own, the one I bought from Express a couple years ago fits me the best by FAR.  The jacket is perfect, although I did have the pants hemmed a bit.  Before this job, it was just an interview/wedding/big meeting suit because I didn't need it on a daily basis.  Probably been worn 20-25 times and drycleaned, still holding up wonderfully.

I found the season premier a little disapointing....wait...does this need to be a new thread?

ask Still@. I also found it a little disappointing. The show is not just House. It's how he interacts with the staff.

Yeah, what kind of woman let's two mental patients take her car, and later sleeps with one of them?
 
Overall, it was a little too cheesy for a House episode - but I guess that would have been hard to avoid given the redemption and growing nature of the story.

What kind of woman? Plenty of younger ones, but mature, married women?

I loved it.  I'm glad they made it clear (at least to me) that it would be the only episode of that kind during the season.  It was one of those "I could watch that once, but they better revert to the traditional after this" type of episodes.  I also don't think that House will become "softer" after that episode either.  Fox knows what got them to the status they are at today, and that is a grizzly, pain-in-the-ass House.

Express isn't bad, but it does have a real slim fit. If you search a few online sites and maybe even some outlet stores you could get your hands on a Zegna suit for a realistic price. Buy one and  you'll never get another brand, perfect fit and it really adds a nice v-shape to your back!
