The Geoffrey Beene name has been recognized as an iconic American couturier for nearly half a century. After launching his brand on Seventh Avenue in Manhattan in the early 1960s, Geoffrey Beene quickly gained recognition as a fashion industry trendsetter, taking on numerous prominent clients, from Faye Dunaway to Nancy Reagan. Geoffrey Beene dress shirts, suits, ties and apparel represent a distinctive level of quality, sophistication and style found in few other brands, as does Geoffrey Beene luggage.

When this suit was purchased for my teen son, who stands 6'1" and weighs perhaps 160#, we also purchased a Calvin Klein suit from this website in the same size (40R). The Calvin suit was the more expensive of the two.
When it came to try on, the jacket of the Calvin was excessively slim cut, and binding in the shoulders and upper arms. On this guy, that's quite something. The Beene jacket fit perfectly, though the pants will require taking in and up.
Overall, the Beene suit, though perhaps of lesser quality fabric than the Calvin, was better cut and better fitting. Men broader than tall and lanky teenagers may wish to consider this as well.
This was a great value, and a good "starter suit" for a teen. If you don't wear suits often, and simply must have one, this is probably the one you should get, rather than spending more money on quality that won't be worn.
