Whoever says the suit is dead has 1. never been inside a Suit Supply and 2. forgets that Washington is full of lawyers, lobbyists and Hill workers who for them a suit is business casual. Suit Supply offers a great selection of suits in a variety of fabrics and fits that are really stylish for today’s working man. What’s great is their selection has a very modern appeal at around the same price point of many of the local department stores. Why shop there? Suit selection and fast tailoring (sometimes as quick as one day)

Paul Stuart may not have had the brand recognition as some of the other luxury brands that have taken up residence at City Center DC (Burberry, Gucci, Hugo Boss) but one cannot deny that this brand has clearly made an impression on the fashionable men of DC. Paul Stuart is known for pushing the envelope in terms of mixing patterns and bold colors in its looks but it does it in such a way that it is never too over the top or costumy. Why shop there? Its bold pattern looks and the Phineas Cole line
