This summer I'll be interning on Wall Street so I'm assuming I'll need a suit.

I want my budget to be somewhere below $1,000

I'm looking to spend $500-800

What do you think about that suit I linked? I'm looking for a slim fit.

The styling of the suit seems quiet good, I mean with a good button stance, CBD style, however I am not convince with the material composition, also I bet most people would not look good in this off the rack

How about the M&S Fully canvassed range, the £499 one, I had it as interview/first impression suit and it is perfectly cut, high armholes, not overly trendy (skinny and high button stance), and it is a wool and cashmere blend, prefect for 4 seasons (grey)

The construction is way beyond the hugo boss black, and possibly more comfortable and looks better

They do plain colours, do check them out and spend your money wisely

BTW, better to try the suit in the shops first, it is no point to focus on bargains in your first suit.

I have a feeling you will not have an ideal size of what you need, your own measurements and the sort of cut you like

If I need to buy my first suit, have a look on the advice in other threads but don't concentrate too much on getting discount, this should not be your primary focus on necessity

Hope you internship goes well
