As long as it fits well, they're not going to judge you on the brand of your suit. I work for a pretty luxury brand and I wore an M&S suit to my interview.

Post pics of your suit / smart casual options and you might get some useful feedback.

Will also get people telling you which made to measure Saville Row you should be going for of course…

In an ad agency / digital business it would be a bad idea.

I have a next 2 button 2 piece (cant get pics because not at home atm) that doesn't fit very well at all. ok in the shoulders but slightly too tight in waist & it has an oddly low button stance & the lapels are annoyingly thin - it just looks shit.

I could go and buy myself an M&S suit no trouble, but is it worth the effort? I have plenty of nice button downs, oxfords and trousers to wear if the office-casual vibe is enough.

I think there's a difference between what the office vibe is when you're in, and what you should wear for an interview. You need to make the right impression and show you've took it seriously and want the job, it's a respect thing more than anything. I interview all the time, and if someone swanned in casual it would instantly go against them, and for me, once you lose the interviewers confidence in the first few minutes its really hard to win them back round.
