No.

Not sure if this is a troll or legit, but no to plaid. Just go with a normal, plain navy, charcoal or gray suit. You aren't supposed to look suave and stylish. You are supposed to look like someone ready to work hard.

Just a plain navy? Alright. I was told it was supposed to have a design, didn't sound right to me but he's very successful so I didn't question.

How about this, a plain navy - http://www.bachrach.com/mens-suits/tailored-mens-suits-modern-fit/solid-seville-modern-fit-mens-suit-navy.html

Not a fan of both of those suits. I'd take a look at Banana Republic. They carry more "youthfully" cut suits, which it seems you're after, but are still in the classic styles. Plus, if you have a BR outlet store near by you can get a really nice one for under $200 (huge sale going on right now).

Also, I'd check out Nordstrom Rack. They have great suits at great price, plus you can try them on.

I am eyeing a slim-cut. hadn't considered either Nordstrom Rack or Banana Republic, I'll check them both out in the AM. Thank you!

Prospect it doesn't really matter what you have, that second suit is not as bad as the first one.
Plenty of threads on suits to own on this forum. Do a quick search.

Stick to navy or charcoal, you can't go wrong with those. Just go to a taylor or someone who can adjust the suit so that they can tighten the shoulder and potentially shorten the sleeves if need be. As long as you don't wear that first suit, and it looks like it belonged to your dad you should be alright.
