where to find an affordable suit for grad

I am looking to spend 100-200ish, trying to keep it low because I have a feeling in another year I won't be able to fit into the same suit again.

I'm looking for a slim-fitting suit (not tailored), something off the rack.
I"ve heard H&M and Zara have good suits. Can anyone tell me places where I might find such suits I"m looking for?

I'm just looking for a plain black suit, maybe with stripes

Thanks

Zara suits have good selection. Better than h&m but it's still going to be over $250 and the materials aren't the best. I bought a slim shiny-ish suit there feels like polyester lol but looked cool.
For $200 u should check out the bay they have some really good brands and prices. Maybe wait for a sale though

Another option for $200 is trying the calvin Klein outlet in Seattle which might have some for that price

Renting a suit is the best deal though they start off pretty low so unless you're going to be wearing suit at least 5 times a year IMO don't buy. And I'm guessing if u don't already have one you don't really need one in your closet lol. And the suit rentals come with everything (tie shoes vest etc)

Moores generally have cheap suits. Don't bother going to the bay, sears if there isn't a sell generally pricey but good size selection.

I pickied up a suit from H&M for $80. Not something incredibly fancy but it looks good and probably my favourite fitting wise.

Howmuch is renting a suit? I'll need it for 3-4 different days (different photo sessions). Can i just rent a suit for like a week or two, or should i rent one for for each of the days

Go to Mexx Outlet. My gf's brother just bought his from there for about your price range. That's just for the jacket and pants though, not including everything else like dress shirt and tie.

ever planning to head down to LA?
god fucking cheap there..
go to one of those outlet in Korean town
they sometimes carry items that didn't sell/little mixed in size from bigger store..
top notch quality if you ask me..
ads said 3 pieces for $100
I thought they meant jacket, shirt and pants.. what they meant.. 3 sets of jackets and pants for $100.
quality wise? fucking 10 times better than ones I got from Moores(spent 3~400 on those)

Head to the states. K&G in Washington state got me a decent suit for $130. Even better is that it was in my size since I'm a big guy, all the stores locally had shitty-looking suits in my size.

I'm assuming you bought everything separately from H&M cause I definitely did not see that outfit when I was shopping for a suit that i need to wear for a wedding.

Zara has some nice slim fitted ones for under 200 and imo i think their quality is better than H&M' slim fitted suits which cost around 250ish the last time I checked.

However, if you have an ebay account go search up h&M slim fitted suits and there are sellers there that sells suits for under 170

The coat and pants we're kinda together and the shirt and tie were separate. I actually bought the coat and when I went back a few days later it was 50% off so saved a lot that way as well.

BUMP!!!! i need a suit in 9 days.
i found the one i want. its calvin klein arden 952. $159

does anyone know where i can get this locally and not in the states? i know you can rent it from Moores, but do they sell suits too?
does anyone know where to get suits for under $200 in this exact color? blazer, trousers, vest, tie and shirt? or am i asking for too much for $200?
im just wearing this suit not more than 5-7 times so i dont want to spend much on it.

With a suit, you can the tie/shirt/shoes separately. Try looking online would be your best bet for blazer/vest/trouser combo. I personally bought my grad suit from england at a store called Top Man, they have on in new york now. Nice slim fit suits that ship pretty quickly.
