    all you need where I work is 10 shirts ( can be all white) , 3 trousers ( 2 of which I have the matching suit jacket for ) , 1 tie ( which you'll never wear), 1-2 shoes, and maybe 1 jumper. This is for sales btw, and trading can be even more casual ( and we have casual friday)

    A lot of the talk on this chat is giving poor advice and people bragging about their expensive watch or suit. fact: as an analyst you don't need it... it might be nice to have it.

    If you have a tight budget, don't worry because you can look better than most guys who think they're the nuts in there off the peg styleless designer suit.

    He's at GS.

    Anyway, while people can go for the 'bare minimum approach', I don't think it is optimal.

    My total spend is around 3.5k

    Shoes: 350
    Suits: 2x PS + 1 Boss - 1200 (saved around 300 quid in the sales on 2 of them)
    Watch - Tag Carrera : 1350
    Shirts: 400
    Ties: 3 x Hermes - 300 - understated.
    This sounds like a reasonable benchmark.

    I'd spend about half the amount you did on ties though simply because they get absolutely no use. Similarly I'd spend about double what you did on shirts. Get 10 nice Thomas Pink/Hawes and Curtis slim/superslims. Probs spend about 10-20% more on shoes and suits also.

    Could finance that by going for no watch...but I didn't.

    Are you aware that there are people in this world that have a severe medical condition which causes them to be that way? My mother for instance is one of those people. She is a truck driver that has bad knees and a bad back from driving the truck but you probably do not care about that case either. Oh well I am not one of those people I am 6'4" 245lbs and I exercise every day. I would love to see you say something like that to my mother in front of me. Probably never happen though you are probably just an internet tough guy. I doubt very seriously you would say that to someones face. Just my thought. What do you think. Oh I am sorry you probably do not have a brain. I on the other hand will be happy to buy you a plane ticket to come here and see if you have the nerve to say that to someone I know.

    Yes but have you acquired the knowledge thus far that there are people who suffer from conditions beyond their control, and are naturally in that state? My aunty, for instance, happens to be a person of that nature. She is a crane operator that has bad joints and a bad spine from operating the crane but you probably lack empathy for that case also. I do not fall under this category as I am 6'5, 300lbs and every day I make an effort to stimulate myofibrillar hypertrophy by inducing skeletal muscle mircotrauma. I would be most enthusiastic about you saying such a thing of unkind nature to my aunty in the vicinity of my physical presence. This has a low probability of coming to pass however as you are courageous only when your words first travel through an electronic medium to a public display forum. My belief is not strong that you would vocalise these insults when there is little spatial distance between yourself and that person. That is my thought process. I would like to know yours. Oh I do offer my apologies as you lack a frontal lobe with the necessary neurons and synapses which are prerequisites for a sentient being. I myself, however, would be most happy to book you in for a three day cruise to travel to my location and visualise yourself making such taunts to a person of my acquaintance with the removal of an electronic discussion medium.

    FACT #10
    Even this T-shirt is bespoke
    Fashion

    Fashion is a means of personal expression. Clothes broadcast emotion and can speak volumes about one's inner character. People send out different cues about their nature with their outfits: self-confidence, conformity, reckless individuality. As Bankers, we, too, utilize fashion for personal communication, and the singular message our finely woven threads scream is an unrelenting: "We are better than you."
    ok?

    The problem is your focusing on the things in life that don't really matter. When I was a kid I had hopes and dreams. We all did. But over time, the daily grind gets in the way and you miss the things that really matter, even though they are right in front of you, staring you in the face. I think the next time you should ask yourself "Am I on the right track here?". I don't mean to be rude but people like you I really pity. So maybe you could use the few brain cells you have and take advantage of the knowledge I have given you now. Good luck.
