$400-500? That's so expensive, I doubt I can afford that kind of suit. I was thinking more like $200.At K&G in the Philly area you can get 2 decent suits on sale for $150 - $200. $400 - $500 is kinda steep maybe that's the amount in NY or something.
So what is in style, 2 button or 3 button suits?
Go stand outside of a biglaw law office (Or the courthouse) on monday and you will see what they wear. If you go to the courhouse make sure you watch the lawyers entrance.
yeah it's steep, but i said decent suit. if you can only afford $150. or $200.00 you can probably find something at a K&G or men's warehouse, but you also get a $400 suit for $200 at department stores on sale, there's a lot of good deals right now because they are clearing out for fall merchandise. don't bust your budget but you have to pay $400-$500 and up for a nice suit anywhere you live (once again if you don't believe me ask around). it's an ivestment but you can wear it to work etc. especially for you people going to work in high end law firms. you can write that stuff off on your taxes by the way (business expenses). you're going to want to have a decent suit trust me. if you just don't have the money get the cheaper suit for the interview and then upgrade once you start working. the shoes are most important though you can really dress up a $200.00 suit with a nice pair of shoes, same token you can bust down a $500.00 suit with cheap shoes. the number of buttons is personal choice i prefer two but a lot depends on the cut of the suit and your body type. for women sorry i don't have as much "expertise" but i would still say get the best stuff you can afford. women's clothes tend to be a much cheaper than men's so you guys will probably have an easier time finding nice things you can afford.
