7 Affordable Suits to Fall for This Autumn
A suit says a lot about a man. Whether you work in an office with a conservative dress code, you attend a lot of formal events like weddings, or you just like to look dapper, every man needs at least one or two good suits in his closet. It’s only a rumor that good, stylish suits also have to break the bank. In fact, suits are now more affordable than ever. So, if you want to step up your style game this fall, check out these incredible finds.
Suitable is a new menswear line that offers custom suits (yes, you read that correctly, I said “custom suits”) at not so custom prices. This is how it works: after checking out online, you just give them your measurements or you can even schedule a virtual fit session. And if for some reason your suit still isn’t perfect, they offer a $50 alterations credit so you can take it to your local tailor.
While all of Suitable’s offerings are stylish and affordable, its Anchor Brown Suit really stands out. Made of Super 110s wool and designed with attention to detail, the jacket features pick stitching and canvassed lapels. It’s a great way to look like you just stepped off the cover of a magazine.
J.Crew Outlet Thompson Suiting
J. Crew’s outlet website is one of fashion’s best-kept secrets. Its Thompson Suiting line is made from a wool/cotton/spandex blend, so it’s comfortable and easy to move around in. Hey, just because you wear a suit doesn’t mean you have to be stiff. While this design in particular is available in classic colors like navy and grey, its Windowpane Flannel style stands out as a safe, but bold choice.
H&M Suit Separates
While H&M is mostly known for its casual wear, it is stepping up its game in terms of offering more formal clothes. The clothing company has great suit separates that are very low in price and high on style. One of its best offerings for fall is their Beige Suit. Made of cotton (but don’t throw it in the washing machine), it is a must have if you live in a slightly warmer climate and find wool to be too hot.
Frank & Oak Laurier Linen Suit
Canadian retailer Frank & Oak offers a personal shopping program called Elevate. [Update, 4/19/2016: A previous version of this article referred to Frank & Oak’s program as Hunt Club. It has been updated to reflect that it’s now called Elevate.]
However, you don’t need to be a member to shop at the store. Its Laurier Linen Suit separates are lightweight, so it is a great option for warmer days. Fully lined, you will find this suit to be completely comfortable.
Topman New Fit Black Skinny Suit
Fast fashion British import Topman has taken a step back from super trendy to offer this very classic, Black Skinny Suit. It pairs perfectly with any color shirt and a perhaps a patterned tie. The jacket and trousers are sold together, but you can choose the sizes separately, which is great for men who have trouble fitting into the traditional suit size mold.
Express Men Producer Suit
Express Men’s Grey Producer Suit was designed to look sleek, tailored, and modern. Made of a light fabric, it’s meant to be worn all year round. In addition to the pants and jacket, Express also offers a matching vest, should you be a three-piece suit kind of man. Expect the Producer Suit to produce a lot of positive reactions.
Lauren By Ralph Lauren Regular Fit Herringbone Wool Suit At Saks Off Fifth
What could be more classic or American than a Ralph Lauren suit? Off price stores like Saks Off Fifth, Nordstrom Rack, and Neiman Marcus Last Call always have deals on suits. This wool, fully-lined suit in particular is conservative, but not stuffy. Essentially, you can’t go wrong with Ralph Lauren, especially for the price.
