Jos. A. Bank


Having never been into a Jos. A. Bank before I was pleasantly surprised by the customer service and suits options available to explore.  I struggled with the same issues I experienced at Men’s Warehouse: I found only one suit in the entire store that fit me (the Joseph Slim suit).  Considering it was $895 I felt the suit was extremely overpriced; it was 100% wool but the cut and quality wasn’t anything better than what you’d find at Macy’s.  However, Jos. A. Bank does offer a buy one get two free promotion, effectively bringing the cost down to a more reasonable $300 a piece (excluding alterations).  They don’t offer suit rentals either, and the grey tuxedos they offer all have a contrasting lapel that I would rather not wear.  The only rental bright spot: if you rent 5 tuxedos you get the 6th free.  I will keep this in mind in case I end up renting a tux, but otherwise Jos. A. Bank wasn’t any more enticing than Men’s Wearhouse.

Lessons Learned
After visiting the two stores, I realize I have a ton more work to do before the wedding.  I need to visit more suit stores and determine what styles and prices are available.  And I’ll probably need to visit a rental shop too, in case I have to eventually go that route.  I am hoping to have better luck in the future, so stay tuned for an update in the next couple of weeks.
