There are plenty of times when men can get away can get away with an inexpensive outfit-say, at a baseball game or trivia night at their local pub. But when it comes to their suits, it can be worth every penny to invest in something worthwhile. Spending the extra dime on a fine Italian custom or bespoke suit instead of something off the rack, can pay off in a number of ways by providing a better cut, look and fit. A classic suit can last years and lends a man an instant look of confidence and self-assuredness. And it doesn't hurt that sipping whisky while getting fitted for a bespoke jacket is a luxurious experience in itself.
When purchasing an Italian suit, keep in mind that the more classic the look, the longer the it will be able to work for your closet. Solid colors like navy and black will work with a multitude of shirts, ties, shoes and accessories, and will be more suited to your wardrobe in four or five years when the latest trends have long gone out of style. Investing in one great, classic suit will be worth it the long run rather than spending a few hundred every year to update your wardrobe.
