CK suit

Postby Anonymous User » Sat Jun 15, 2013 10:09 am

Is this suit ok for interviews/OCI (--LinkRemoved--)? My main concern is that the site says it's shiny; I'm not sure what that means. I hope to interview at a couple of very traditional firms, so I would like to dress conservatively.

That's way too expensive for that. I'd get a suit from Brooks Brothers, Suit Supply or JAB Signature and up instead.

What Brooks Brothers fit would be the equivalent of CK slim fit/Boss trim fit? What's the slimmest of Brooks Brothers' fits?

As a general rule, don't buy suits from fashion brands like CK, Van Huesen etc.

As far as CK goes, they make some of the best dress shirts for the price. Go to Macy's or something when they have a sale, and you can find some really great CK shirts sometimes less than $40 each. I'm always getting compliments on those shirts, and they are some of my favs. 100% cotton, non-iron, nice subtle patterns, etc. As you can see, I'm all about them.

Haven't looked into their suits though. And I agree that, for that price, you can likely do even better if you wait for a sale.

BB suit prices drop to around 400 during their july sale? Def might check that out. I still have a few JAB suits from OCI and my SA last summer, but looking to get a few new ones, and I'm def looking into BB and Hugo Boss if they can be had for a good price.

No. The one I was responding to was $575.

You can get Hickey-Freeman and other far nicer suits for $550 or less at Neiman's Last Call on sale or at Saks Off Fifth.
