FI has asked me for help finding a good place to buy a suit in DC – he’s going on a boy’s weekend soon with his best man and some friends, a suit-buying expedition with some fun times in the evenings. We’ve budgeted a fair amount, so he afford to shop in the Brooks Brothers range.
He really likes things that are a blend of classic and modern (he’s crazy about Neal Caffrey’s clothes on White Collar). I’m afraid just researching online he might end up at a place for stuffy old men.
Recommendations? and does he need to make an appt?

We just bought FI’s at Jos. A. Bank. The suits are pricey but they’re doing a 3 for 1 sale until the end of April. I loooove the suit we got for FI.

I second Jos. A Bank – FI buys all his suits there because they have amazing promotions.

I’ve checked, and he seems to have an aversion to Jos. A Bank. Does anyone know anything about Wm Fox & Co? Or any others that aren’t chains?

There’s a Thomas Pink (1127 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington, DC 20036) and JPress (1801 L Street NW
Washington, DC 20036 ) and a Brooks Brothers (1201 Connecticut Ave NW
Washington, DC 20036 ) all within walking distance of each other (I know this because I work close to all of them) – this might be a good place to start!

FI got his from Hugo Boss. I highly recommend them. He is very picky about his clothes and I had nothing to do with his selection. Plus, alterations are included.
