mrsnitti17 :  If you found a crazy good buy, they should buy now. At that price he can puchase two suits and sell one if he bulks up.

ps Do you have a link to the suit?

Well, one month out is definitely enough time to buy a suit.  Mens clothing usually doesn’t require altering the way womens clothing does.  And even if you were renting, you know that high school boys going to prom don’t have the foresight to rent suits or tuxes 4-5 months in advance.  My friend walked into a store and bought a suit for his own wedding two days before the wedding (they only had a three month engagement).

The only concern is if it’s on sale because they are discontinuing this particular style.  And if they are, is it generic enough that he can find a suitable substitute?  I mean, you aren’t asking him to get a teal or chartreuse suit or something, right?  Most suits look pretty much exactly the same save for color. 

Otherwise, if he wants to spend more of his money later when the price goes back up, then let him.  It’s his right to do with his money as he pleases.  Everyone else can order theirs now and save some money.

A month is fine – but it’s almost June. Your wedding is in September, how much does he think he’s going to put on in 3 months… Lol. Unless he’s dirty bulking and is just getting fat, ahahha.

mrsnitti17 :  It might be a moot point. Have all the other men ordered their suits? Your link shows the only regular size still available is a 40. The rest are tall izes.
