Affordable, quality suit needed

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello,

I recently posted a thread asking for help in choosing a shirt and tie combination for a very important job interview. I have been offered the job at a very respectful global I.T consultancy and since I am still at University in the United Kingdom I own one suit/trouser combination which I now have the money to upgrade.

Are there any affordable yet quality suit tailors within the United Kingdom? I have looked at TM Lewin, but cannot find any detailed reviews.

Any help would be fantastic.

Many thanks,
James

Congrats on the job!

I acknowledge that my input was not requested since I know nothing about tailors in the UK. I would suggest that you be frugal in the new job. I remember getting my job out of b-school and took my bonus and lived it up - but the economic times were different. I think given the current economy, the slower you spend your money the better. And your focus on affordable quality is spot on.

Once again apologies on the off topic comment.

Cheers.

Thank you very much for the information . I do plan to save quite a bit of money in the first year!

TM Lewin suyits are good for the price, certainly better than your average department store.

I personally think Charles Tyrwhitt's Black Label suits (with peak lapels and good quality cut) the best around for the price:
