I live in St. Gallen and I really need to get a suit (nothing fancy, 200). Where should I go to do the shopping?

1. Konstanz is closer (1h on train vs. 4-5h)
2. Metzingen is only a bit more expensive to get to (group ticket costs some 7-8 per person)
3. For goods <300CHF, tax refund from Konstanz is 19% (green form), but ~10% from Metzingen (global tax refund fees)

Basically, I believe Metzingen is better, but is it really worth all the fuss?

p.s. In other words, is it possible to buy something decent in Konstanz for 200 (I am not brand chaser)

Re: Shopping for suit in Konstanz or Metzingen?

Last time hubby and I tried in Konstanz we were not successfull. The suits in the price range you are talking about were all made of polyester, H&M which usually carries some decent and inexpensive woolen suits, did not even have any.

Maybe we just did not know the right stores to go to. I am thankful for tips
