    Sorry mate, I really have no clue where it actually is - Ive only been there around 3/4 times and only once was I lucky enough to get a nice suit that fitted me. I live miles away from Yorkshire but go past the warehouse on the way to relatives

    Agree with the sentiment, but why do looking good and showing talent have to be mutually exclusive. It's all about the full package, and whatever people say, you are judged on everything in this industry from your ability to your presentability.

    My wardrobe:

    4 x suits (2 lighter weight ones for summer and two wool/cashmere blended super 120s suits for winter. Navy, grey and charcoal)
    1 x black overcoat (Banana Republic)
    1 x Barbour jacket (for the rainy days - im from the country, so it's acceptable!)
    10 x Charles Tyrwhitt non iron slim fit cutaway collar shirts in white and blue.
    10 x ties (Hermes, Ferragamo, Thomas Pink)
    2 x black pairs of shoes (Loake Oxford and Loake Brogue)- adding some Gucci loafers imminently...
    5 x pairs of flair socks (all the colours of the rainbow to mix up the standard black socks)
    1 x Watch (stainless steel Omega Speedmaster)


    Total value, probably around £8000, but ive accumulated it over about 5 years, so hasnt hit me too hard...

    Pretty good set. In fact shockingly similar to mine, minus the Seamaster and Barbour jacket. And the £8k price tag.

    Where from? With the quality of the rest of the wardrobe, I'm guessing bespoke or at least MTM?

    10 x ties (Hermes, Ferragamo, Thomas Pink)
    :yy: Very nice, especially the former two, though guessing you're in sales or IBD if you need the ties? Plus there's supposidly the issue of junior bankers wearing Hermes being seen as a bit above their station, but never sure how much truth there is in that.

    Definitely need more here, and not Gucci loafers. I'd go for another 2 black pairs, probably a wholecut and a monk (both so underused IMHO, and stand out by being classic, though I've nothing against Oxfords and brogues), a pair of dark brown or burgandy Oxfords (yes, even for the city, brown and burgandy goes so well with a navy suit) and a pair of something to go with either suit or jeans, like some tan half brogues.

    There's far better than Gucci for the price. And far better than Loake as well. Both a bit fashion forward in my view. Much rather go Church's, Crocket & Jones, Trickers, or Cheaney if I want something a bit more fun.

    Many thanks. I have four Crombie suits - only buy from them. Buy off the peg then have alterations made to suit.

    Im an M&A man, hence the ties. You say some seniors might have an issue, but the truth is, 100quid a tie is such small change to these guys that i hardly think theyd begrudge an Analyst for wearing them. A £30,000 Patek, or rocking up in a Lambo...more likely to ruffle a few feathers.

    Yeah, agree that the shoes need an extra couple of pairs adding. Really keen on the Gucci, they re such a classic design and instantly recognisable. Just iconic in my view.

    Sorry to say, but i baulk at the idea of non black shoes for work... Was brought up with a "never wear brown in town" view and will continue this. As for the Monks, i Find them slightly pretentious and im sure theyre just a flash in the pan trend and will be back out in a couple of years - unlike brogues, oxfords and loafers, which clearly wont.

    Shirts are such a needless expense in my opinion. If i had a pound for every time ive put my elbow through a GH or Thomas Pink shirt, id probably have been able to replace them.

    Good for you, i find anything with a big H on it horrendously crass though. I saw some intern the other day in a charcoal suit, tan loafers, winchester collared shirt, H pattern hermes tie and giant gold H buckle belt. He looked like the biggest chump. Sometimes less is more, but each to their own...

    The more I read this thread the more I think maybe I should look more towards a career in software/electronics... working for these banks seems like a big to do when it comes to the fashion side of things...does anybody know if VC firms are as fussy as IBs are when it comes to clothing.

    Not advocating wearing the full keep. And their loafers dont come with a massive H on them either.
