Video Description
This video features 2 articles I purchased for $18.66 with tax from a local Goodwill store. The greyish blue 2 button suit is a new Jones New York suit still with the original tags on it for $10.99. The Sport Coat is a 100% wool Lauren Ralph Lauren jacket, made in Canada, that I purchased for $6.49. I altered the Jones New York slacks in the waist myself, and did nothing to the coat. I may get the collar adjusted by a professional to get rid of the slight rolls between my shoulder blades/neck area at some point. The original tags on the suit show the full retail price of $350, but I'd call it a $250 suit, as most would not pay full retail price. The suit is medium quality, being machine made, and using a 76% polyester, 21% Viscose, 3% spandex material. It will serve as a great "workhorse" suit in my wardrobe, meaning it's a suit I can wear on days where I will be very active and/or may get it dirty. This way it will help keep the wear off of my more expensive higher quality suits, but I can still look sharp as the fabric and fit look nice.
