So I’m getting married this fall, and I need a suit. Gonna be a pretty casual wedding, nothing black tie. I was thinking of just renting a suit, but the last 2-3 that I rented looked terrible and fit me like a cardboard box, even after multiple fittings. I wanna say I was spending 2-300 bucks or more as well, and that was several years ago. So I figured I would buy myself a nice suit, likely something custom made. I have a long torso, short legs and arms, and a really wide neck and shoulders. It’s hard to find clothes that fit well. Any suggestions on places to find custom suits in the OKC area? Or suggestions on reasonable prices? I went by Q Clothiers on the classen curve, they said full custom suits start at $1299, and I pick literally every detail on it. Sounds like a lot, but I honestly don’t know. It would be the equivalent of renting 4-5 suits over the next few years. It is appealing though, they also sell custom shoes, and I would like to buy a nice pair of custom fit dress shoes that will last me a lifetime, rather than buying ill fitting crap that lasts a few years.
Any suggestions or thoughts? I always remember something I read, talking about how back in the old west you could get a quality made shirt for roughly a months wages, but it would last you forever. We’ve gotten away from that mindset as a society, but it’s appealing to me. On the other hand It’s a difficult pill to swallow, as right now I’m not swimming in money.
I know that this may sound odd, but I've gotten some very fine suits from the Salvation Army store. Do some research of the higher quality brands so you'll know what to look for. I've actually found some that still had the store tags on them. Oh, since you're still fairly young, might get maybe 1 size larger for future 'growth'. Don't worry about a lifetime pair of shoes --- your feet will get a touch bigger over time.
Then, take the 'saved' money and buy yourself a dress holster and a fine 'new' shoot'n iron.
Call me frugal............call me cheap..........call me smart..........just call me happy and satisfied!
