Foreign vs Domestic Suit Quality?

Hey WSO,

Any suit connoisseurs want to comment on the quality of a suit made in places like China, HK, etc? Say I'm paying $200.

Reason I ask is that I got a suit made in Shanghai, and it feels and fits great and everyone tells me it looks good, but I haven't worked in a BB and don't know anything about suit tailoring or quality.

Am I buying crap? Or should I buy a few more when I go back?

Thanks

Indeed, but sadly I'm not him. I'm the green guy on the right.

At that price point, if it fits, looks good and isn't falling apart it is a good deal. Also, assuming you're still in college or are an analyst it hardly matters if you're wearing Jos. A. Bank or Kiton; it would actually probably be prudent to stick with the former. That being said, if you're out in Shanghai maybe cough up a little bit more money ~$600-$800 from a reputable tailor (ex. WW Chan-- may be too expensive). But sounds like you have it good.

Brooks Brothers suiting essentials (~$700) are made in Thailand. I don't think you need to worry that foreign = poor quality. Just make it sure it looks/fits nice and you're fine.
