I would say, as the budget is limited, and they are only starting off, I would recommend; 1-2 Boss suits, maybe one in navy and one in charcoal 1 Bironi, certainly in a navy, as the Bironi cut realy looks good in navy. Both of which, in my opinion should be single breasted, two/three button. A Zegna, Cashmere blazer (I belvie in America one would call it a Sports Jacket) A few pairs of trousers, from a high street shop, (excuse my Britishness here, in case you cannot understand, in American english that is; slacks from a low end chain store e.g. Bannana Republic) Two designer ties, e.g. Hermes, LV, Gucci, Versace, and two more sensible ties, e.g Kiton etc. A light suit for summer wear. A Designer belt, e.g. Hermes, Gucci, LV, Fendi, Prada. 3 Pairs of shoes, preferably one british style (Oxfords, or Standard Lace Ups), and one italian (i.e. Pointed, sleek, no cap toe) style both black and one brown. A Made-to-Measure suit from Saville Row. Forgive me if this would cost too much. Â
Bear in mind that diffrent brands have presence in England to the US, therefore, I have not got a clue what things like Allen-Edmonds and Oxxford are, threfore I cannot recomend them.
