Kenneth Cole New York Slim Collection Black Stripe Wool Suit – $125.00
You could spend around $350 – $500 on a Kenneth Cole Wool suit at a department store. Or you could keep an eye on Overstock.com.
If you’re athletic, but far from skinny, these Slim Collection suits from Kenneth Cole might give you the extra room you need in the chest, all while coming pre-contoured and ready to be additionally darted in by your tailor.
I own two of these. I paid $350 for one which I bought at a department store and $100 for another that I got off Overstock. They’re both (in my opinion) excellent, and they’ve got a consistent presence on Overstock.com. Sizing availability can be sketchy, so you might have to check in often.
The last time these Overstock.com Kenneth Cole specials were highlighted, it was the lower Kenneth Cole REACTION line and it was all synthetic. This particular model is a Kenneth Cole New York, it’s 100% wool, and comes in black with a very thin stripe to the fabric.
If you’re not a fan of black and instead want a more versatile solid Charcoal, the same suit with the same size availability can be had for $165.
Will these turn heads like a Boss Black or a J. Crew Ludlow? Not really. But if you get it expertly tailored and pay attention to the rest of the details, you’ll look better than everyone else in the room.
Now if they could just do something about those hideous ties the Overstock people keep pairing with these suits.
