The Proper Fit

What can make a $500 suit look like a $5,000 suit? The fit. It doesn't matter if your suit is wool, cotton or corduroy—the fit is always the most important thing about how a suit looks. Here's how to get the right one (and how much you should expect to pay for it).

When it comes to buying your year-round suit, your aim should be to spring for the best you can afford. But when you're looking for some variety or simply some one-season suits for cooler weather, that's when you want to score one for a bargain. The key is finding options cut from quality material with a decent fit and finish. Thankfully, there are a slew of seasonal styles—from Suitsupply's Italian wool and Club Monaco's corduroy to Micah Cohen's take on a classic wool flannel—that all ring in under $500.
