Men out there seem to want style advice, too. After M's question, I got quite the response from the male contingent of the Infintessimal Readership. So here's a tip to start you down the road to building a solid, flextible wardrobe. If you want to find that well-cut suit on which you can base your professional ensembles, try Filene's Men's Suit Sale. Like I recommended to M, go for a basic color with a little bit of pattern (for color flexibility). Remember, almost anything can work as a neutral these days - you just have to be creative.
And don't forget to hit the tailor afterwards. The suit needing no alterations whatsoever is very rare.
What: Filene's Men's Suit Event
