The Power Suit Dilemma: to become powerful you must own one, but if you're not already powerful you can't afford to buy one, much less blow off two hours of work to get fitted. The solution: Astor & Black.
A&B is the preeminent custom clothier for men seeking to look as successful as they already pretend they are. They deal only in the highest quality materials, hand-stitched to your disturbingly exact specifications. But instead of using their pedigree as an excuse to gouge, A&B offers the goods for 50-80% less than both custom and off-the-rack competitors: $500 for a Canali-level suit, $800 for a Zegna equivalent, and $1300 or less for the same Scabal fabric used for Brioni and Polo's 'Purple Label' collection. Dress shirts custom-made with the same love? Only $75-$100. There's also a discount for volume purchases, and options like functional jacket sleeve buttonholes, handpicked stitching, buffalo-horn buttons, and monogrammed crests are included in the price -- saving you funds to purchase office luxuries, like "Hang in There" kitty posters.
Best of all, you can call A&B's Cris D'Annunzio anytime, day or night, and set up a housecall with a professional fitter -- saving you time, gas, and steering-wheel-shaped forehead dents. Mention Thrillist and he'll knock an additional 10% off your bill. Of course, using A&B could sap your career motivation, because when you can make a man fight traffic just to come to your house and measure the girth of your thigh, how much more success do you need?
