I've been looking for suits, got a fair bit to spend on it (£500 - £700). I know nothing about suits, but I'd love something dark, sepia, maybe a waistcoat with it.

It's for sixth form, and I'll be getting it tailored. (I also need advice on shirts, shoes, ties to go with it).

I'm not sure. Based on what I've mentioned, what would you guys recommend?

As long as you're not yet physically mature (except if you just have enormous wads of the stuff to spend), tailored clothing may not be the best solution. If you're looking for a perfectly presentable short-term solution, you could look at the usual suspects (Tyrwhitt, Lewin, SuitSupply), or take a look around in Bicester village.

In any case, good luck! Great to see the brown suit getting some love.

If you don't already own a suit then navy or grey would be a better choice then brown...
