Nordstrom, call the men's suiting department, make an appointment with a personal shopper. Explain to them the sitch beforehand.

Not suit supply, it's the worst

ACN3 - you had a bad experience? My SuSu stuff is much nicer than comparable suits I've had from j crew and brooks brothers and good but cheaper

Yes, Nordstrom has in-house tailors and a pretty great selection of suits. Tysons, Pentagon City, and I think Friendship Heights. Good luck!

like

They pride themselves on customer service? Which location? Try Bruce at Tysons if you can. Haha Also, try different brands. If he runs narrow, do Hugo Boss. If he runs really narrow, the only dress shirts that will prob fit him will have to come from the Hugo Boss store. I think that it is about finding the brand that works the best for you. If you tell them that you'll open a Nordstrom card for the points (credit or debit), they might pull some strings for you. Good luck!!

Montgomery mall nords saved the day and they can even do the alterations by Tuesday night!

Omg, I am so happy that my advice was helpful! Congrats!

Nordstrom's?

What's the exact turnaround time?

two days six hours eleven minutes nine seconds

That's quick, but not impossible. Call your local dry cleaners and see if they can do your alterations in that time, but expect them to make you pay through the nose. If they can, you should get it into them ASAP- like the next few hours. I think D1 is right about Nordstrom being your best bet at this point.

I'll caveat - SuSu is great if you can get over the euro trash hyper-douche marketing

lol we have until Wednesday so @accenture2 so you weren't totally off with the timing 😊

You might even get lucky and find something off the rack that fits well, but I really wouldn't bank on that. In my experience, department stores can't expedite tailoring to this little time, especially with it being wedding season

Thanks everyone we are at nords. hoping they see how much I normally spend here and take pity on us 🙏🏻

My memory recall for technical details has always been my major flaw. How do I make it stick in long term memory? I work with over 200 technologies as an infrastructure PM.

It feels like way too much to ever learn, especially since I’m not the one building it. But I will learn it somehow. I take notes obsessively and when the questions get really deep, I do call in an engineer.

How do I get better at at technical memory recall by working smarter?
