Purchasing from Aliexpress?

I recently brought a couple of cheap loafers and suits from Aliexpress, Your probably thinking "why Aliexpress?" Its because i'm on a budget because of how expensive college is. Its either food clothes or amenities you get the point. But when it came it the suits were tighter and more weird looking than usual, and the problem is I have a final round interview tomorrow. What do I do?

I don't know which city you're in, but if your suit shop has a possibility to rent out suits to you, then check them out. Of course, you'll be missing out on valuable prep and "zoning" time.

Aliexpress is great for electrical parts, smaller consumer electronics, outdoor & hobby items (fishing, knives, metal parts, ..). I would only buy clothes if you had measurements compared to your own and confirmed them with the seller.
At times there can be communication issues but generally AE sellers seem willing to help.

Just to give an idea about last 11/11 ("singles day"):

I have been using Aliexpress for about 2 years now and every item was received without any problems.

In your case you could rent a suit for the interview.

AE sellers are helpful, and you'll have a great experience, as long as your product is ready-made and does not require much customization. (i.e. uniformity in color, specs, etc). Communication errors are possibly the only reason why I do not buy from Ali Express. It's so hard chatting with them unless you know how to type Mandarin.

I think, it is the best place today to buy everything necesaary in any area. There are so many sellers of great quality, as well, that everybody can find anything necessary for him. Especiall, using the specific tools for this.

You need a suit this is a very justifiable expense. Go get a nice looking one. Make sure it is comfortable and that you can wear it all day, play basketball in it and still look good. Does not need to be bespoke or Armani, just fits right.
