    You guys are meant to be students graduating/interning! How the hell can you afford some of this stuff?!

    SERIOUSLY:

    1. 2/3 Suits (M&S, debenhams, suits you, Moss) £150 max each (+ you already have 1 i assume)
    2. Another 2-3 pairs of smart black trousers (above) @ £30 each MAX
    3. 4-5 PLAIN shirts (white/blue) @ £10 a pop
    4. 2-3 PATTERNED shirts (not stupid patterns, just diff colours/stripes etc) @ £15-20 each
    5. 2 pairs of smart shoes. Clarks for comfort or mandm direct for designer ones at £20.
    6. 1 belt. doesn't need to be great. M&S. £15.
    7. Watch. Either don't wear one or spend £50- £100 on a reasonably decent silver (looking) one.

    Total about: £250 + suits and that should keep you going. Then you reinvest your pay on nicer things and your wardrobe develops as you earn more. SIMPLES.

    Best brands, in my opinion, for quality are Balmain, Chester Barrie, Daniel Hechter, Paul Costelloe.
    Balmain fail.

    But I like Chester a lot.

    They expect you to spend at least part of your golden handshake on kitting yourself out. That's 5k on average at most banks. It's not unreasonable to spend 2k on 2-3 nice suits, 3 nice pairs of shoes and 7-10 good quality shirts (definitely no patterned ones though).

    Yeah Balmain menswear is a bit crap, but they haven't been doing menswear that long to be fair.

    Although I do have a nice pair of Balmain shoes I got for £35 :awesome:

    This whole thread is devoted to wearing clothing appropriate to make one comfortable and confident.

    Buy a dictionary, take a course in logic, go back to school, commit suicide... Do something that will prevent similar moronic posts.

    How formal is the dress code at S&T? Where I worked last year, some of the traders wore jeans to work on some days...

    Any tips on the dress code for girls? I was quite surprised to see some girls in low cut dresses and ankle boots/booties (the shoe) when I went for my interviews.

    They probably worked within HR? :yep:

    I think the OP also mentioned what divison,...
    I never wore any suit jacket or tie during my Internship within Technology. In fact, hardly anyone in the office did.

    Nope, they were interviewing for FO jobs. Not sure if they got the job, I guess it wouldn't hurt if your interviewers were male and bored...

    IBD/CM. People have suits but mostly wear shirt with no tie or jacket during the day. Some groups wear suit+tie. Lots of IBD analysts are retards and wear suits to training events etc. CM is more relaxed even for these events.

    What did you all wear to internships then? Where from? I'm assuming they are going to be a bit cheaper seen as you haven't gotten the money from your internships yet.

    2-3 decent and reasonable suits
    2 pairs of black shoes
    10 shirts
    few ties

    Nothing too fancy.
