 Ask this guy, it was 14k though, so perhaps a bit above your budget? Maybe try the silver version. 
If it would only take a couple of days for the move you can just fold everything neatly and don't pack it too tight in the boxes. I've done this several times now, and each time all the wrinkles came out after a couple of days on the hanger. It's cheaper than those wardrobe boxes, but a bit riskier I suppose. I'm moving myself next weekend, and that's what I'm going to do. Except this time it's a 30min move, so much easier than international ones! As an aside, I've heard...
 Well, a lot of other exercise cause your traps to grow as well, as they work as stabilising muscles when you do deadlifts or OHP or cleans. However, my traps didn't really grow much until I started doing shrugs, and went back down in size when I stopped doing shrugs. This might not be the case for everyone, as everyone's body responds a bit differently, but it's safe to say you won't get massive Brock Lesnar sized traps all of a sudden.  He seems to look ok in a suit...
 Yeah, suits for 4 days out of the week, although you don't really wear your jacket much so you could get away with just odd trousers and shirt if you're not client facing. It depends on your group, but not many wear ties anymore. Some won't allow you to wear a tie at all. When you see clients though you nearly always wear a tie. People who see multiple clients a day generally put on and take off their tie in between meetings. Fridays can vary from very casual...
 Yeah, no one's going to care much about what you wear or is ever going to look at your labels. It might've happened in the 80s at some banks, as there are a couple of apocryphal stories about it, which is where I got the idea from to troll you when you said you wanted to work in finance/law. Not many people went along with it though, so it wasn't one of my more successful trolls. Oh well, you win some, you lose some, but I had my fun. Were you actually considering of...
 Sloped shoulders is more than just having big traps. Not everyone's bone structure/posture is exactly the same. If you don't want big traps don't do shrugs and you'll be fine.
 You'd probably raise some eyebrows if were to work in womenswear.
 yep
 High finance is a douchey name for investment banking/private equity/hedge funds/certain types of asset management, etc. Retail/commercial banking and private wealth management is usually not meant when one says high finance. I think it's a stupid term, but there isn't really a better one.  The work you do in the finance department of a regular company is usually of a very different nature. Some people call it the 'real economy'. Some firms do have m&a type teams as well...
Come on guys, it would've been much more fun if you went along with it, but now the shtick is up. It would've been hilarious if he'd asked Leonard Logsdail to stitch black lapel labels on his suits.   @semperexcelsius I'll be good natured. I've never seen anyone check for labels or google someone's brand or whatever. You can wear whatever you like, as long as it's not too flashy and more than a standard deviation away from your peers. I guess one exception could be...
