Make sure to budget for alterations.
Unless you have someone who does a decent job at a lower than average cost altering waists, shortening sleeves and hemming will tack on another $50 to $75.

Ps I will echo some of the posters above. You get what you pay for.
I bought a couple last year. I am not a suit snob but these are okay for occasional wear for someone who doesn't generally wear suits or in a light rotation as part of your "stable" if wearing suits every work day.

I bought one last year, don't wear suits that often but for the price it seems like a solid buy.

They are very boxy and not a nice cut. However I spent ~$75 in alternations and now it actually looks very nice!
After alteration it worked out to ~$250. I don't think you can find a better suit for that price.

What is the quality like for Calvin Klein suits? I have bought Calvin Klein shirts before and the quality is meh and you get what you pay for.
I am aware that most people don't wear suits daily but say if you did, would you buy these?
I'm wearing one of these suits (from last year) today. It fits well, is comfortable, but is not particularly well suited to heavy duty use. I only wear it a few times a month and I'm pretty sure a shine is starting to develop in the elbows... it normally takes years before that happens with my other suits.

I think this suit is well suited to two groups:

a) someone who wears a suit regularly but doesn't necessarily need something obviously high-end (i.e., if you're a trial lawyer, politician, CEO or some kind of public figure, look elsewhere)

or

b) someone who only needs a weddings/funerals/job interviews suit.

If you're, say, a district manager for a tech company and have a rotation of 6 suits, this one would make a fine addition. But if you wear it every single day, it will be garbage within two months.

What trouser waist size comes with a 42 Tall?
That's my size... the pants are 36. It's a comfy 36, though... some of my other 42L suits have come with much more fitted and snug 36 pants.

I do wear suits pretty often and I did buy one of them a few years ago. The quality is pretty bad and to be honest I'd rather have only one 400$ suitsupply suit than two of these. If you only need a suit, go for something a little more expensive or just rent one if you only wear one once a year.
I have one of these suits, and have worn it a few times. Quality seems very decent for the price, but I don't wear suits often. I would suggest that buying a suit like this makes more sense than renting, considering that this suit is probably $50-$60 more than the cost of one rental.

Absolutely agree with you; I did try one even before the sale begins at the Bay store and the salesmen highlighted the "boxy cut" issue along with the alteration costs. If it fits well, great! but getting right alterations itself a challenge, at least in my experience. Thanks op!

Ya.. returns are very easy in store. No cost.

Personally I have one from last year and it's fine. Nothing special but for a basic suit it's a-ok.

Does anyone know a good place to get alterations done? The place inside The Bay at Yorkdale is stupid expensive, I think it cost me 100$ to alter the pants and another 150$ for the suit jacket..

I just went in store and bought their X fit suit in navy. Jacket fits well for my build, I don't need to wear suits daily, so this is perfect for my needs for the occasional event or wedding.

Exactly my use case as well. Weddings, baptisms, funerals, interviews, etc. The charcoal one I bought last year was the first suit i bought in about 10 years. Very happy with it. So i bought two more this time around. Should be set for another 10 years Face With Tears Of Joy
