Tasso Elba suits were created to close the gap between low end and high end suits. This brand is unique to Macy’s and provides for a nice middle of the road suit.
Luxury style three buttons make up the bulk of this lineup. However, they do have two button suits as well. Look for slightly narrower lapels with single vented backs. Pants range from double pleats to flat fronts.
The look of these suits is fairly traditional and you won’t find any cuts that you could accuse of being trendy. This means that if you’re a trend follower, you probably won’t be happy with this suit.
On the other hand, if you’re searching for a suit that will stand the test of time, this might be for you.
Look for high end wool materials starting over super 120’s in spin. Many of their models also throw in a bit of cashmere to make the suit softer and to give it a better feel.
Although I can’t say for certain, these suits appear to be fused suits with machine stitching. This is not unusual for a modern day suit, and you can find many fused suits that drape quite nicely.
Classic colors define this model with small variations created in hues and patterns to break up the monotony. If you’re searching for wild colors that will get you noticed, you’ll have to search somewhere else.
Prices range from $400 to $800 dollars. As of 2011, these suits have come down dramatically in price and you’ll find many models in and around two hundred and fifty dollars.
This brand is young and untested and should prove interesting to watch over the next few years.(2008)
(2011) Three years have passed and the only real change that has taken place is that the price has dropped.
It is possible that Tasso Elba suits were priced a little above market to begin with or that the recession has brought the prices down, kind of hard to say at this point.
