I Bought a Jos. A. Bank Suit

People like to call out Jos A. Bank and Menswear House for making some of the worst suits out there.  They like to cite quality concerns, fit issues, and an overall outdated or boxy look look that is made worse by the “overpriced yet crazy discount”model that the company operates with.  Just look at some of their markdowns.  However, I absolutely pounced at the chance to buy one.  I did cheat though; it was on eBay!
