I think MoB might be inferring that you can't go wrong with Suit Supply for the price and you don't necessarily need to spend £900.

Depends what you want to be honest. Do you want structured formal suiting (traditional Saville Row etc) or softer more casual suiting (think Drakes)?

Less structured might be a better option, I got rid of loads of formal suiting as I just don't need it anymore (kept 2, navy/grey). You may well get more wear out of an unstructured wool/twill Drakes number over the years and it's far more comfortable.

Will definitely be some discounts on Porter (Thom Sweeney etc) and Drakes website in the coming months. I would swerve any 'fashion house' suits to be honest, usually expensive and shite in my experience.

Exactly this

Edit: Also their instore tailoring service is fantastic, i;ve been a right fussy cunt with them and they've never put me wrong. I reckon i've had about 10 suits from them in the past 5 years and still have and can wear every one.

Suitsupply is a great option indeed, or if you're feeling lucky, check the Tonello brand on Yoox. Decent suits (made in Italy) and can often be found cheap, but of course more of a gamble size wise but you can have your tailor make changes.

Ah seen cheers.

Suit supply stock / selection wasn’t that great in my size so took a punt on a couple of Zzegna ones that came in at about 350 each will keep suit supply in mind though.
