I am starting a new job where the dress code is 'smart casual' - no denim. My current job just requires jeans and a t-shirt/top so I am starting this wardrobe from nothing. I have 18.5" collar, 50" chest, 42" waist, and I am 6'2" tall, 33 years old, based in the UK. I want to be more smart than casual and have an initial budget of around £1,200. Most of the current staff seemed to be wearing formal trousers and shirt - no tie. Salary is £50k.
Can anybody give me some ideas what would work well for my build, and suggestions on where to buy from in the UK.
