It always pays to have a sharp suit handy and if you’ve worked hard to get in shape, the last thing you want is a bulky getup to cover it up. Banana Republic’s Tailored Fit Wool Suits offer a slim and modern fit and are made with premium lightweight Italian wool. Everybody fits differently, but I was able to get one right off the rack without any adjustments needed. Sold in two pieces – $355 for the jacket, $150 for the pants.
While it’s not going to make the grade for an interview, this lightweight Chino Suit from Banana Republic is a great for classy outings this summer. Cut with a tailored fit, it has a modern and slim look that will have you looking sharp – because “puffy” never looks good. The blazer, which can also be worn with jeans and a t-shirt for more casual occasions, runs for $250 and the matching pants will set you back $130. Not too bad when we’re talking suits.
It’s been a hot summer and if Al Gore is right it’s only going to get warmer! Be prepared for sweltering gatherings and invest in some nice shorts. Banana Republic offers several styles that are perfect for that casual afternoon party. Their clothes are both classy and well made – so they’ll hold up in more ways than one. $40-$50.
