Suits

Recommended Posts

My team at work is nominated for an award at the Trusts award ceremony at the Hilton this Friday night. I managed to get a ticket, free meal, good opportunity to do some 'networking', but just found out it's black tie only! Which is a shitter as I only own a blue and a grey suit :lol:

 

Anyone know where I can buy a cheap (and I mean cheap!) black suit (slim/tailored fit) that won't look like it's come from 1994

 

Cheers

'Black tie' doesn't automatically mean black suit these days though, it just means formal (unless you're going to the palace or something) If the do is at the Hilton I'd think you'd more than get away with a blue suit as long as you wear a tie etc.

You could always hire a tux if you don't envisage going to another black tie due anytime soon. I bought one about a decade ago and have only worn it twice.

£80? Fuck me, was £25 when I was renting one for my formal (albeit 12 years ago).

 

yup, hence him spending an extra £20 and just getting a black suit to do him for interviews etc

Only dickheads and wideboys wear blue suits like.

Alright James Dean :lol:

 

I lost 2 clem last year so had to chuck my suits. Got a Navy suit and a Grey 3 piece suit. Only wear them for Weddings/Interviews these days so pointless dropping £500 on a suit no one will see

Can anyone actually buy a decent suit for £100? A tux fair enough but surely not a suit.

 

he won't need to wear them for other than 30mins in an interview i think anyone paying big money for the likes of that is insane unless the top you're going for will require it, by time you need it again could well be outta style.

if you're wearing them everyday it's worth buying decent ones so you can rotate them like, unless you fancy getting rid of cheap ones often when they get a bit tattered.

 

don't think you'll find much in it between the 150-300 mark though tbh bar the label i've some cheaper ones closer to 150 as well as tedbaker/dkny efforts and it's six of one with those

Nowt wrong with a blue suit, though not at a black tie do, obviously.

 

I'd never wear a black suit usually. Like a waiter innit.
