Jade Howe’s recession-friendly suit
Designer Jade Howe has created a $250 men’s suit — and it’s pretty sharp.
The “Personal Jesus” suit, which is part of his “Rise of The Indie Executive” spring '09 collection, is a two-piece lined suit. The jacket is a fitted, two-button blazer with a narrow lapel and the pants are a skinny fit, tapered black trouser. Indie indeed. Skinny suit pants may not work on every body type, but this suit is a great deal for the young, hip guy breaking into his first real-world job.
And he can always wear the pants with Vans and a V-neck sweater or the blazer over a worn-in hoodie.
Howe’s Personal Jesus suit is $250 and available at Nordstrom in L.A.
