Question by Jared: How much is a sport coat?
I am looking to pick up a sport coat soon but I don’t want to spend too much as I am still getting taller and broader (17). It doesn’t have to be particularly great, I would just like something to make it easier to look a little more dressy,

Goodwill or Thrift Shops starts about $ 8.99.

Call the store that sells 35-45% less than department stores: Marshall, Ross, TJ Maxx, Target, Walmart.

try ebay or even express or macys depends where you shop or

It might cost around $ 100, but if you’re lucky, you might find one at a thrift shop for about $ 10. I’ve bought ladies wool & corduroy blazers at thrift shops for around $ 8-$ 10 each. If you don’t see one you like, try Ross’s, Penney’s, Target, & Sears. I got a good quality brown wool dressy wool coat one year on sale at Sears for around $ 60. So, surely, a men’s sports coat would be a similar price. I also bought a casual velour coat lined in quilted flannel & washable for $ 15 on the clearance rack at Ross (outlet store) one December (a couple of weeks after buying the dressy coat at Sears). A few years later, I bought an identical velour coat in a different color at a thrift shop for $ 10, with no signs of wear. Lucky me!

So, the main advice is to watch for the sales but also to look at thrift stores & church rummage sales. If you know any other guys who have gone through a sudden growth spurt, then maybe they would have one that would fit you that they’d give away or sell. Ask male cousins & uncles, too, in case they have ones that no longer fit. Also, watch for a dark colored suit for school dances like Homecoming, Christmas, & Valentine’s Day if there’s a good price on one. A sports coat with dress pants might be okay for these, but it depends on the customs at your school. Fortunately, it’s usually only the prom that requires a tuxedo.
