Suit Outlets

Written by Mr. WellCultured, Sunday, February 13th, 2011 in Q&As

I’ve noticed plenty of outlets/warehouses for mens’ designer suits cropping up recently. They all advertise 2-3 suits by DKNY, Calvin Klein, etc. for around 150-300 dollars. Is it too good to be true?

Not necessarily. For the most part, designer brands like DKNY, Calvin Klein, Kenneth Cole, and BCBG tend to end up in outlets for one reason or another. This doesn’t really mean that the suits are fake or even poor quality — usually, it’s a product of over-stocking, a poor economy, and the fact that a lot of stores that carried their brand(s) have since gone belly-up. For example, Kenneth Cole appears to be selling off a lot of their excess wares because they are closing down some of their branded brick-and-mortar stores.

For obvious reasons, be careful, but do take advantage of good deals. If the price is right ($150 a suit seems reasonable for an outlet sale of a Calvin Klein suit, as Overstock.com sells them for about that price), and if the goods are decent (i.e. no manufacturing defects), go ahead and buy now and get the suits tailored. The brands you’ve mentioned are of decent quality, and at that price are worth the effort.
