Dress clothes

Hey! Grad pics are coming up so I was wondering where's a good place to get good quality and well priced clothes. Things such as dress shoes, dress shirts, dress pants, ties etc. Le Chateau sounds seems kinda overpriced and the clothing doesn't really seem that good quality either. Thanks

I find Mexx clothes to be better than Le chateau.
But cheap? You're not going to find Prada quality at American Eagle prices.
Yes dress clothes are a lot for what they are, but if you're just buying one shirt, it's worth it imo.
Shoes... sometimes you can find some at winners, but if you're not too picky, feetfirst, aldo etc.

Got my grad clothes at Mexx as well, I find their selection is better tailored to young adults.
H&M also has a decent selection of dress shirts/pants.

I find mexx has a good price to quality ratio... as long as you get them on one of their 50% sales.

Lol for grad pics most important thing is colour of your shirt/tie I wouldn't worry so much about quality of your clothes, wait till prom for that.

I bought a suit at zara (pants+jacket) for around $300, there are some you can get for 250 i think or less, pretty decent selection. I don't know whenever I walk into mexx just feels like a sea of black & white and the same stuff over and over again from years past.

I also found some suits at the hugo boss outlet at seattle premium, they had a reasonable price for hugo boss but I'd only go there for the suits.

The bay has a really good shirt and tie selection, and if you have an spc card I think you get 10% off
