where do i go?
I'm glad you fucked up your club sandwich. YOU HEAR ME.
BTW TK Maxx have some nice suits in there, last time I looked they had some top quality Boss suits at a bargain price.
get one tailor made, just about.
...Moss Bespoke are around that price. I wouldn't spend £400 on an off the rack suit as it won't be particularly any better than a £200 one.
My experience was mixed due to getting a trainee but the suit itself is top drawer. My mates all raved about theirs so think I was just a bit unlucky. Worth a look...
Ive had a good suit from a suit that fits, would recommend.
if you're spending 'around £400', you should be able to get close to a tailored one, especially in London (i.e. there must be loads there). If not, try Gibsons - i got my wedding suit from them and it's beautiful.
from House Of Fraser the other day. It's slim fit grey, for my friend's wedding. It is SHARP and fits like a dream.
also when i want to feel snazzy.
Looks better on me, obviously.
he rents hotel suites and you go and he measures you then he sends the details to Taiwan or something then sends you a made to measure suit.
YES. has anyone does this? it feels like a molestation lawsuit waiting to happen
I'm not sure you have the time to wait and see if Mr Taiwan comes up with the goods, or whether your funds end up in Bank of Nigeria.
couldn't you just spend it on 40,000 penny sweets instead? I would.
browsing and there were a couple of Paul Smith / D&G numbers in there around the £400 mark.
Spend the rest on booze and Android tablets.
that's a lorra cash dollah.
and i'm going to pm you pictures every day.
i'll be there anyway, picking up a gift for you
Well I slept with your wife
there's no way you've slept with a woman
Although there are lots of other good suggestions on here to check out too.
That's £341 change to spend on things that will make you stop thinking that £400 is a good anount to spend on a suit. Like gigs and beer and holidays, that kind of thing.
and I own one of them.
but absolutely worth it
friend of a friend in Harvey Nic's waived the alteration fees altogether which helped justify it.
Beautifully light, insanely nice looking, and even makes ME look good which is unexpected.
nearly went with Paul Smith but the trousers were a bit baggy-looking.
Doesn't sound like something that cost particularly close to £400 tho.
so I was only £200 over budget, which isn't bad
I can only see this going well
and otherwise crushing indifference?
There are a great many higher earners/spenders on the board. Not sure why £400 is okay but £600 isn't?
a bit much, perhaps, but if it's what you want, tickles your fancy and you actually have the cash sitting there in your account doing nothing else.
£140 on a shirt - no. no chance at all.
such a good shirt
but you've got your work cut out convincing me of the merits of a £140 shirt.
I bought a Hugo boss suit a month ago. I genuinely got a promtion the day I wore it for the first time.
The Paul Smith Sale shop on Avery Row is a good bet for end of the line suits for around the £400 mark. Got my wedding suit there
one of the light grey suits in particular was amazing as all hell, but the troos didn't fit me properly :(
There's one fitting that description in House of Fraser which I'm very tempted by.
i never normally think about light grey suits, but seriously, it was utterly awesome
But the "spot of shame" issue means they are a no no
but also everyone around me needs to wear dark clothes or stand well back if red wine is around and I'm excitable.
Get yourself measured on day one and get three or four amazingly well made suits for fuck all money.
That's what my brother-in-law did.
made is still in active service, $25 from a tailor in Hoi An I think it was. Best purchase (in respect of suits) ever.
I dropped a pant-shittingly large amount on a suit on Friday (after I managed to inexplicably destroy the last one). I never have to wear a suit for anything other than weddings or special occasions, so I don't need a number of different ones to rotate, and therefore I don't mind splashing out a bit on one.
However, whatever you choose to spend, it's definitely worth taking it to a tailor to make sure it fits perfectly. It'll only cost £30-40, and you'll look a million times better.
