Depends on how much you want to spend, if its just for a wedding and thats it Next will be fine but if you were wearing it on a regular basis splash out and get a proper suit as Next suits are awful for daily wear.

200 will get you the buttons off JCs suits :wink:.

You might think it a bit dull but it might be worth a look - M&S do a large range under 200. :duck:

I got a nice Ted Baker suit out of Slaters on George St for a bout 200 about 2 years back, cracking suit. Jenners and Harvey nicks were looking for 350/400 for the same suit.

i Used to work with them when they were in Dundas Street, the owner/manager is a Craig Martin, good company.

Also try Slaters in George Street, speak to Robbie Ross, who I also worked with in capital Menswear. got my last suit from there, a nice black/white pinstripe number:wink:

Slaters can be v.good to get a 'designer' suit for a good price however i find their layout cluttered and if you are not a fan of salemen tailing you around a shop then don't go there. Very good alteration/fitting service tho.

M&S is probably the easiest and one of the best, a wide range of prices and styles...competatively priced and some of their 'easy care' innovations work extremely well.

Capital Menswear...Maybe just me but had a couple of suits from there and tbh would not buy another.

Course if you have the (serious) wonga then Crombies is the place to go...
