    Yeah I know but the jeans as I am would wear it with are black jeans but slightly faded so it would not look like double denim at all.

    *edit* I am a bit drunk.

    Went to house of frazer and picked up some more discounted wool vneck jumpers. Can't ever have too many of them.

    Hi fashion gurus. :p

    I'm looking for a new suit, budget £200-500 max. I'm fairly skinny but about 6ft 1 tall so am looking for brands which have a really good, tight fit around the chest. Obviously I will go and try stuff on, but it'd be good to get a few pointers for brands. Ideally, it should be fairly modern in style and I don't want to look like a banker.

    Thanks!

    If you are in/close to London visit Suit Supply. They have modern suits, with good detail and quality at a great price.

    Bought this in the end, mainly for work. Arrives on Monday. Got a 42 as that's my chest sized, only that was the second smallest size available and it's probably fairly tailored, so I fully expect to be swapping it the very same day. Online clothes shopping can be a bit of a nightmare like that, but still better than traipsing through town centre imo.

    Right guys looking for some advice and a wardrobe overhaul. Gone from working in a crap office to working for myself. So going to chuck out all my old cheep rubbish shirts.

    Im looking for a nice but not expensive shirt to go with my brown with a light blue pin striped trousers that I can wear when I have to attend meetings or see clients. What color/style do you think?
    I'm thin and a 15.5 collar.

    Also most of the time I work from home but was thiking can you get away with a nice pair of jeans and a shirt?

    Depends on what your business offers IMO.

    I wouldn't say shirts are that varying in quality unless you have a stupid amount of money to spend so it's mostly color/pattern you'll want to look out for. Obviously if you wish to be seen in a professional light it's just the same several colors you can choose from really.

    I got a couple of nice shirts from Jaeger at the weekend, they had some nice lines in.

    I assume those shirts will be thrown out into a charity bag ya? :p

    Yep all bagged up in a charity bag.

    So what color would you recommend with brown trousers, take it that it should be a plain shirt if the trousers are pin striped

    Quick heads up that American Eagle has 40% off, some nice stuff and the polos fit me awesome!

    £15 shipping, which is damn cheap considering.

    White or cream goes best with brown imo, it's a classic look.

    I was in the market for a casual jacket with a layered effect and set myself a budget of £250 for something nice I could wear out and about but wouldn't drop out of fashion (a barber jacket just seemed too obvious).

    Tried on several and had my heart set on a G-Star Raw that was slightly over budget.... until I chanced it in H&M and bought an equivalent that looked practically identical for £17.50 :eek:

    Great fit, good textures, snug and warm... perfect. BILLY BARGAIN \o/

    Wouldn't you have to pay customs? Which could be anything really depending on how they much they insure the parcel at.
