While looking on the Bay for some inexpensive suits for work, I found some listings with the "Next" brand. I think it is an English store and the suits are made in China. Are these suits on par with M&S or Banana Republic?

Thanks for the help.

I would rank Next below M&S, though this is based on my experience of the UK high street some 15-20 years ago. It's slightly more fashion forward.

If your experience is 15 years old you are not up with how crappy it is, it has been rushing down market for years.

Never owned a next suit, but based on a few other items I have owned from next the quality must be pretty awful.

Got to M&S (although steer clear of their bottom rung) or if you can wait for the sales, in the current desperation you should be able to get something a lot better for around the same price. I picked up an suit Aquascutum, that I believe is fully canvassed for about the same price as the next suits in the spring sales.
