    Before you start judging the fact my shirts are less than £100 each, this is for my placement year + summer internship. I wouldnt recommend shirts more expensive than CT until you have nothing better to do with the money since the quality and fit (for me atleast) is good and getting more than 4x brand new shirts or the price of 1 turnbull shirt just isnt worth it at this stage...

    Im half a year in, this is me so far;

    Pre-job:

    2x suit, Navy and Charcoal (TMLewin) - £500 between the two
    4x Shirts 3 white (2 single cuff 1 double) 1 blue, CT, £81
    1x Belt, Black, Ralph Lauren, £30 (sale price obvs)
    2x Black Oxfords, Dune £80 each
    So many socks
    3x Undershirts (primark) £pence
    About 20 ties i've collected over the years (new and used), about 5x Boss, 2x armani, 2x ralph lauren, 1x Lanvin, 1x aqauscutum, a few CT and TML

    During:

    2x more shirts, lilac and blue pupstooth (both double cuff) £21 each, TML and CT
    5x more undershirts £not much
    2 more sets of cufflinks
    so many more socks
    1 more suit on the way, different shade of blue, TML again £200
    1 casual suit jacket, Chester Barrie, £250
    A few new ties

    On hermes ties and belts... no. Well, yes, I want them, (regular belt, not the H), but the price isnt worth it until you hit 100k+. Better off with multiple belts/ties of a lower price level so you dont end up with a single nice belt and tie that you constantly bring out to try and impress.

    Not sure why there’s all this talk surrounding Hermes ties, they cost about £140, just as Purple Label ones.

    I think it's frequent in IB to come from a family that can spend 140 without worrying

    so right, but its odd that most never seem to understand that these are indeed luxury goods and that there is a good argument to finding cheap quality substitutes. As much as I'd love all my shirts to come from Turnbull, I could buy 5 from tyrwhitt and have them dry-cleaned every 2 weeks for almost a year and still spend the same as 1 turnbull shirt in some cases. And youd almost certainly look better wearing a fresh shirt every day too!
