For these things, one patronizes tailoring establishments, not "Men's

you get product worth the premium price. Properly done, with good
materials, a full suit and two shirts will probably set you back about
a sum in about the same order as a reliable used car, however.

Indeed so, but a dozen such suits and a couple of score shirts should
last you a lifetime.

And, alas, cost you as much as a house.

Worth it if you have the money in hand, but banks don't usually
give mortgages for suits.
