I'm starting an internship at an investment banking firm. Need two suits, some shirts, ties. I'm on a tight budget: don't want to spend over $1,000. I like slim fits, skinny ties, etc. I'm not sure what the appropriate "investment bank" colors are, so looking for some recommendations. Links, pictures, etc. are all welcome. at a high level, Ibanks are pretty conservative... so fitted/slim is better then skinny/fashion. watch for that line carefully... let the quality of your output speak for you, instead of trying to compensate for looking like a flashy douche. where you located? (city, country) - just so I know if I should recomend brooks (usa) or lewin (uk) or chan (china?) or whatever I'd really say be careful about the "cheap" places like H&M, Zara, etc. Guys who wear suits every day can spot "mock" suits a mile away. I'd suggest something like brooks brothers, or if you're in uk check some of the lower end savile row places. colors, I'd suggest navy, maybe pinstripe, and charcoal, maybe subtle pattern like a crosshatch or a bit of texture. for budget, I think you could find a 2 for $900-1000 deal somewhere for something that's a decent suit. Ties are easy to find for like $30-50 off the buy and sell here or ebay (careful) or clearance racks at higher end department stores. There's no need to spend $100 on a tie. Go for textured but simple ones like navy, red+blue repp stripes, etc. your ties is your personality, and as an intern at an Ibank, you're not expected or welcome to having one. shirts, plain white maybe patterned like a herringbone or twill, get 2. then light blue, white with blue stripe, etc. again, BB's had extra slim fit shirts, 3 for $200. they're a good step up from cheap mall brands but they're not designer or high end. hope that's a start.
