Oct 2nd - 7th I'm in NYC.

Need to buy good, reasonably priced suits.

Where would this be?

Is it for a court appearance?

1) convenience (need them in NYC first)
2) exchange rate
3) lower sales tax
4) better selection?

Pretty big deal then... 2 choices;

1) Go for a bespoke (tailored suit) in Canada. That will at least DEFINITELY fit you properly.

Or

2) Go a day or 2 early, hang out in Wall St, pick a style you like being worn by a passerby and say "HEY! GREAT SUIT! WHERE CAN I GET ONE?" which may look great on him but might look like a bag of spuds on you if you don't give the tailor time.

I go option 1. Everytime. I'd rather have smart clothes that fit properly rather than worrying about current styles (which, let's face it, investment bankers probably won't give a toss about).

In the true sprit of Counterglow, here's a gratuitous picture of Michael Flatley.
