Pick a tie, any tie. The wall at Suitsupply's full of 'em! — Photo courtesy of Suitsupply
Located beneath Dantanna’s at Buckhead's Shops Around Lenox and in a modern, windowed space, Suitsupply is first and foremost dedicated to providing Atlanta sartorialists with well-fitting, good-looking suits in a bevy of colors, fits and cuts and (wisely) in a range of reasonable prices (anywhere from $399 to $999).
Lean toward traditional? They’ve got it in black, grey, brown, tan and pinstripe. Want something that makes you look stylish, but not like you’re trying too hard? How about a fitted suit in a vibrant blue? Edgy, you say? Try a snug suit in maroon or green, you handsome devil, you.

Take your time and let the selection really sink in, because they’ve got it all, in a smattering of textures, weights, fabrics, price tags and, most happily, sizes. The store takes pride in its ability to pair its customers with a look that not only fits the personality, but that fits the actual physique of the person wearing it. (No more saggy crotches or skin-tight arm-pits, fellas!)
Let the slightly hipsterish, very friendly staffers take you under their wing and guide you through the process. Afterwards, if you need tailoring, they’ll do it in-store.
Though this is a chain with 51 locations around the world, you still get the sense that you’re in a local haberdashery when you walk in. The place brims with personality.
Take the onsite tailors; you see them the moment you walk in the door. Or consider the glass cases of bespoke furnishings like tie knots, cufflinks, pens, socks, pocket square and tie bars and that kaleidoscopic wall of ties in every hue, and you’ve got ample attributes to love.
But it’s not just the quality-driven suits (and also gorgeous shirts, pants, casual wear, shoes, coats and travel accessories) or sleek space that set it apart. No. It’s the fact that what could be a pretentious store is not one at all.
The atmosphere is welcoming, friendly and (above all else) helpful, which is exactly what you want when you’re going through what can be the financially and emotionally stressful experience of buying (or going with someone to buy) a new suit.
