OT: Buying a suit in Montreal? (Big & Tall)

Hey guys, I need your help finding a place that sells big & tall suits at a decent price.

I'm going to a wedding next month so it's kind of a rush. I'm a size 50R and I live in Brossard.

I'd appreciate any help.

I think you're going to have to narrow down your price range to something a bit more specific than 'decent'

At that price you might as well just rent one. 200$ is not even enough for a suit jacket.

Where can I rent a suit? Moores only rents tuxedos and I don't need a tux.

If you're going to spend money on a suit, and you wouldn't mind going to Verdun... go to Giunta&Beauchamp, 5021, ave. Verdun, Verdun (Québec) H4G 1N5. Get it tailored. He makes all my suits. Bring him a picture of any suit you like, he'll make it for you.

I'd suggesting going to the States which is barely an hour away.

I bought a Calvin Klein slim fit suit separates + matching pants for 210 USD at Macy's in Burlington VA where there is ZERO sales taxes on clothing and shoes.

Did they look at you funny when you wore it across the border?

You might consider eBay, if you are sure of your size. Get a New With Tags or a New Without Tags, and get it shipped to you. Use AuctionSniper to win the bid at the last minute.

Edit: try to get a well reviewed seller, e.g. 99% and up.
