I don't wear a suit for work so I really don't have much experience with them but last summer, I had an opportunity to interview for a new position in higher education and thought it would be appropriate to wear a suit. Unfortunately, the only one that was in my closet was something out of the 80's with huge sholder pads and I really didn't think that would leave the impression that I was after. I shopped at all of the major retailers and everything that I looked at seemed as if it was made for professional women in their 70's or something. I just wasn't happy and was going to resort to just a blouse and black skirt until I walked in T.J. Maxx. They had a huge assortment of Tahari suits sold as separates. It was very easy to mix and match sizes which is what I needed to do since I'm smaller on top than on the bottom. I was most pleasantly surprised by the price - only $99!
I wish I could say that the suit was responsible for me getting the new position and changing my life, but I didn't get the job. I'm sure it wasn't the fault of the suit though and now I'm ready for the next time an opportunity comes up for an interview!
