As much as people would like to say that they don't judge anyone based on their appearance it's not the truth. Appearance is the first chance anyone has to gather any kind of information on someone as an individual. Whether people want to acknowledge it or not, they ask and/or answer a bunch of questions about someone in the first few minutes of looking at them.

Now, this doesn't mean that your appearance is an end all be all because that would be insane, but it does help in how someone else may view you. This is why we often hear about taking your hat off inside of buildings, being conscious of your shoes, and even wearing the best in your closet when heading to a public event or interview. Most of the time formal attire is desired for certain events but is the hardest to come by.

In Kalamazoo, there are a handful of options that specialize in men's(and some have a quality women's section) formal wear. This can come in handy when you grow out of your old shirts, spill something, or just have a reason to buy some new formal wear/a suit.

Before getting into the specialized stores there are some places such as Macy's. TJMaxx, Marshalls, JCPenny, Meijer, Walmart, Target, Kohl's, and more have a selection of items. With that being said if you're looking for the best formal attire Kalamazoo has to offer, here are 7 places you should look for.
