How To Buy A Great Suit In 3 Easy Steps

There's so much that goes into a bespoke suit -- from the subtleties of a man's posture to the numerous fittings before the suit is even finished -- that it inevitably comes with a much higher price tag; you'd be hard-pressed to find a proper bespoke suit for less than $2,000. They're also made by the tailor (or within his small team) and not shipped off to a factory or overseas, adding to the premium pricing.

Confessions Of A Fashion Hoarder

Like any addict I started small, working my way up from shoes to sequins to vintage novelty anything.
