The best bang for your buck with your budget of $600 would probably be a Hugo Boss Jam/Sharp Suit. Normally retails around $800-900, but it's not uncommon to find one on sale at 30% off.

Why the Hugo Boss Jam/Sharp?
  • With the little time that you have, you don't have too many options. You will have to buy a ready-to-wear suit from a retail shop.
  • Quality of a Jam/Sharp Hugo Boss suit is head and shoulders better than any of the suits at other retailers costing you lower than $600. (i.e. Simons or Kenneth Cole at the Bay costing you $350-400) The incremental value you are getting for the $ for the better quality and fit is worth it.
  • The design and the fit of the suit is better than other designer suits costing $1000+. The Jam/Sharp is a classic suit for starters that can set you apart from others. It is the standard for a minimum "acceptable while still being affordable" suit in the industry.
  • The next better available option (which is a customized one from a very good tailor using expensive fabrics) will cost you more than $1,000 if hand-made here in Canada.
  • You want to stay away from Moore's, Mexx etc. Horrible fit / cheap quality and it really shows. You'd rather have one good suit at $600 than 3 cheap ones at under $200. Ladies often comment that a man looks best when dressed in a nice fitted suit. Do you really want to look sloppy when given the occasion?
  • Be ready to welcome the compliments rocking your new Jam/Sharp Hugo Boss suit.
