Macy’s A Gentleman’s Guide to Style – Chapter 1: Suit Quiz
Macy’s has launched an interactive feature called “A Gentleman’s guide to style” with the first chapter being all about suits. It’s a short quiz that attempts to help you find the right fit for your body type and personal style. Of course they want you to buy one of their suggestions at the end (they are a business after all) but it’s worth taking a spin through even if you already know what brand and style of suit fits you best.
Let’s give this thing a run and see what suits it spits out for me (5’10” / 165lbs). I’m hoping the Macy’s style robots running this thing show me the suit the guy in the intro is wearing (see below). Don’t think I’ve ever seen that one before, and it looks like something I’d like to add to my collection. My answers are underlined.
Question 1: What’s your Build?
- Big & Tall
I’m no body builder by any means, but getting out and running with the dog and hitting the gym is one of my favorite things to do. Athletic it is.
Question 2: What’s your Style?
I really don’t know what to put here. My suits are all two-button with modern cuts and close tailoring, but I prefer classic colors and patterns. I guess I’ll go with modern.
Question 3: What’s it For?
- Social Event
- Formal Event
Again. Not sure. I think a work suit should also fit right in for a dressed up social event. No? We’ll pick “work” and see what happens.
I actually got ten results but these are the top four. Not bad, being that I’ve sung the praises of the Alfani RED line for awhile now on this very site. Also impressive? The first suggestion given for my style seems to be the same suit the intro guy is wearing. I think. Is he wearing the same Alfani RED Grey Sharkskin? Looks like it to me. Not a bad option for $275 if it is. Thanks Macy’s.
