Costume National Homme Suit via YOOX, $498.00
Costume National Homme Suit via YOOX. $498.00.
Q: Where can I get a suit for a reasonable price? And what would the MB consider a reasonable price?
—Casey


A: In their November 2007 issue GQ said you needed $1,000 to get into a good suit. MB sees GQ's $1,000 and lowers it $500. Finding nice, inexpensive suits is fairly easy because they're always on sale, and especially now that fall is beginning to get closed out (see our retailer links on our home page). For example, our favorite retailer YOOX just slashed prices on fall, allowing thrifty and stylish MBs to acquire this Costume National Homme (currently our favorite designer) suit for just $498.
