For me double vents all the way on my suit jackets, they make me look good, really good. I find single vent suits are worn by people who just don't care how they look other than to conform to a "professional attire" dress code and they just look frumpy.

If you are out of Toronto and have access to wheels, drive out to Oakville and check out Garvey's, they have a special on particular model of Jack Victor suit at $550.

I second the recommendation on Allen Edmond shoes, they might be out of your price bracket but well looked after, they are an investment that will last for 15 years. BTW, Contgratulations on getting a job as an investment banker, I'm surprised they are...
