    I stick around the EUR 300 - 400 price ranges as I am still waiting for my body to fully adapt to my new working life (e.g. will I get a beer (read: wine) belly yes/no).

    However I buy my suits in this outlet "village" so their retail value is around EUR 650 - 800. ATM I would never spent more than 650 on a suit, unless its custom made that is.

    I've seen that ehaberdasher carries some very nice suits, such as fully canvassed Caruso, in normal colors and sizes for $550 - $700. I think that's a really good deal. Also has its own label suits for $500, again fully canvassed. If I was looking for a new suit I'd be checking that site often.

    These days I only get bespoke suits except my beater M&S which is around £500.

    At least £1500 per suit that I owned

    However I go cheap in shirts and ties

    Unfortunately due to being tall and skinny (read 204cm and 90kgs), I require MTM or bespoke. Being in Perth, Australia doesn't help either, so my suits average at around 2k AUD

    My last three suits (BB 1818 and Samuelsohn) have all come in around $500 plus tax.

    I try not to overspend on suits but sometimes the need arises that I have to look my best so no other way to do that than wear a fine tailor made suit.

    Most of my suits were under $1000, including a couple of Oxxfords, RLPL, Zegna. I recently ordered a MTM Samuelsohn that will be over $1K. Deals are out there if you know what fits, are flexible with color/pattern, and (most importantly) you are patient. This last time, since I knew specifically what I wanted, I spent a bit more to get that made MTM.

    I'm a student with a government job, so a $500 club monaco suit is just fine for me. I imagine I will step up my game when I start making the big bucks.

    In all honestly, I would love to be able to buy off the rack more often.

    But finding a 48S with a 22 inches in the shoulders and a 14 inch drop is next to impossible, expect for the odd casual sport coat.

    If you can get a great fit OTR and then get it tailored to fit perfectly, go for it.

    I'm just stuck with impossible proportions.
