Glad you got what you wanted. Interesting to hear from a guy’s perspective since we women are so wrapped up in the dress.

My Hollister-wearing fiance is going to look for a suit next month, and I hope his experience turns out as nicely as yours! Thanks for the post, you’ll have to follow it up with pictures!

I’m so excited for you!  It’s a couple thousand that makes you feel like a million bucks!  You do deserve to treat yourself at certain times in life and men deserve to feel just as great on the big day.  Your suit sounds fantastic and so happy to read that you made yourself happy.

You know what? This is FANTASTIC. I’m so glad that you made the splurge and got something that makes you look and FEEL fantastic. Good on you, sir!

The other thing? Our gowns are pretty much a once-and-done deal, no matter whether they’re $99 DB or the really high-end stuff. You will be able to wear, and wear, and wear this high-quality suit for a variety of formal occasions for a very long time. It’s an investment piece.

@village_skeptic: You make a good point. Although I could try and wear my wedding dress to my next interview, and see how that pans out.

Bonus points to you.  I have to admit that there is nothing that looks better on a man than a well made well tailored suit.  I think that it is great that you got a wonderful suit for your big day just like a bride gets a wonderful dress.  I got Darling Husband a few made for him, tailored shirts several christmas’ ago,  he gets all kinds of compliments on them when he wears them, and he just loves that.  Being long and skinny, buying shirts off the rack just doesn’t work for him. 

As soon as it’s done, bring back some pics.  I would love to see it!

@scottsouth: Keep an eye on gilt.com.  I have gotten several $100 off custom shirts from them (which makes the shirts around $80 depending on the fabric).  I get some of DHs with it and they are just as nice as the ones from the local shop, and just as well made.  Just wish I could find you the exact site but it has been a year since I have ordered one.
