    Would you always stay away from buying a suit online, and always insist on trying one on?
    Anyone had an experience with buying one online?

    This place has amazing deals on suits : http://www.burton.co.uk/

    i bought a suit from next was fine. However you do need to check the measurements not just on the look. I prefer to buy instore though.

    Online shopping is one of my hobby. In internet we can easily get lots of online store for clothing, accessories, jewellery, footwear and so on. I like to buy suit online as well as I get lots of discount offer, free shipping service and so on.

    I'd much rather buy instore because if i were to buy it online it may not fit or look right

    I would buy in instore, suits are one of those things that have to fit absolutely perfectly and I wouldn't take the chance of buying it online.

    Anyway Burton has stores I'm sure. Check where your nearest branch is.

    I bought two off-the-rack blazers online. I don't wear either of them as much as I'd like to because the fit is a bit off. There's not enough waist-suppression on the first one, and not enough shoulder slack on the second. The blazer I end up using most is ironically one picked up at a thrift store.

    If it was a cheap suite (<£200) then yes. But an expensive suit I would certainly want to try it on.

    Having said that, you can always take it to a tailors and have it adjusted slightly to get the fit perfect; if you know your measurements, and those of the suit, it shouldn't ever be too far off for a good tailor to fix.

    Surely at that price, it would be better to get a tailor fit suit. Also, I do quite like the Next Signature collection suits
    :love:

    Also, I got my suit delivered from Next (not signature collection) in the sales

    It only cost me £200 and fits like a tailor fit anyway, just got lucky D

    Why not just go into Burton and try one on :confused: Anyway, I'd only buy online if it was a no quibbles return for your cash or if I had tried them on in the actual shop.

    I bought my suit and DJ online, they're both a good fit. As long as you're not really abnormally proportioned, you should be fine.
