Suit Quality

Suit Quality

If you can only afford one suit at the moment, make it the best suit you can afford. Many important first impressions are riding on it. This does not mean to test the limits of your credit card, but to get the greatest bang for your buck!
An investment in your wardrobe is an investment in your future - a wise investment. How people see you today is how they remember you tomorrow.
Quality not only makes a good impression; it makes good sense. The better the quality, the better the suit will wear and last. If you own only one suit, it's going to need all the help it can get. This is where we come in. We have decades of experience with suits and created the Hundred Dollar Suits line from the best fabric at the most competitive prices.
How do you determine quality? Price is only one indicator, but by far not the only one. In this case, the most expensive suit may not be the right choice. What you want is a conservative, attractive suit that fits and doesn't look cheap. You want durability, not luxury. Here are the things to look for:

- The suit should be lined and constructed. Lining is the slick fabric that helps you slip into the jacket without fiction. It should be silk or silk-like rayon and smoothly attached. Poorly sewn lining causes puckers in the suit. The construction forms the suit's skeleton. You can’t see this canvas-like construction fabric, but you should be able to feel its stiffness around the shoulders and chest. Think of it as the hidden frame inside a convertible top that gives lasting shape. It's important. On the better suits, this canvas interlining is stitched, not glued. Hundred Dollar Suits are glued.
- Look at all the outside seams. There should be no uneven. lines or puckering. Pay special attention to the armholes front and back, where puckeung most apt to occur. Hundred Dollar Suits are constructed in the classic suit making fashion and won't show any puckering.
- Turn sideways to the mirror and inspect the neckline. The collar should lie perfectly flat against the neck and shoulders, with no gap. Lift your arms and put them back down. The jacket should return to this flat position. Hundred Dollar Suits will hug you like a second skin with the right fit.
- Buttons should be imitation horn (as in water buffao). Avoid cheap plastic, which breaks and/or deteriorates with cleaning. Plastic buttons are solid and will match exactly. Horn will be less even in color with visible veins running through them. Hundred Dollar Suits uses plastic buttons to save cost.
- Buttonholes should be neatly stitched with no strggy threads. Test them by buttoning and unbuttoning repeatedly as you try on the suit. Make sure no threads spring free. If the suit has imitation or sham buttonholes on cuffs, they too, should be flawless. Hundred Dollar Suits uses imitation buttonholes to save cost.
- Pockets should be real and usable, not just bogus slits or flaps. But keepyour hands and preponderance of stuff out of them. Weight and pulling ruin a jacket's shape. Hundred Dollar Suits have all fully functional pockets.

Hundred Dollar Suits are designed to balance the biggest bang for the buck.
You will receive a fully constructed suit that will look great for years to come, at the most competitive price. We saved cost where it doesn't matter, and spared no cost in the construction, quality and longevity of the suit.
