How much does a first suit cost?
For your first suit, I’d recommend something in the $300 to $500 range. Even at the low end of this range, you should be able to find a suit that you can wear for years (and maybe even decades), without having to choose between suiting up or paying your rent.

Overall, expect about 2-4 weeks total when the suit is made locally. For custom suits made overseas, the whole process can take up to 4-8 weeks total.
How should a suit fit?
The seam that connects the shoulders to the arms of the jacket is a reliable indicator for fit. Basically, the seam should be at the edge of your shoulder, right where it slopes down to your arm. The shoulders on a suit should be flat and smooth. You don’t want any rumpled fabric or creases.
