Quality Suits

(on a Budget)

Used to be, when it came to suits, you could have it affordable or you could have it quality—never both. But times, as they say, are changing. Both J.Crew and Rugby have just unveiled suiting that offers regular guys luxurious, well-tailored jackets and pants that won't leave you short on the rent. What's their secret? They've hired some industry vets, who are well-connected within the manufacturing game in Italy and have been crafting high-end suiting for for decades, to bring that know-how to a larger audience.
