    I'm looking for a slim fit suit in a sort of metallic blue colour. I've looked in a few online stores such as burton, topman and asos, only managing to find one:

    I want a suit like that, but would appreciate if someone could find me a cheaper one or direct me where to look. Thanks

    Realistically, I don't think you'll find one cheaper than that. What you're looking for is quite specific, not your standard black or grey suit you could get from somewhere like Matalan, I can't think of many places in or below that price range you haven't already looked at. £100 isn't bad to be fair...

    Will be hard to find a suit for less than this. Any cheaper suits are likely to be devoid of any form of style and very cheaply constructed too.

    These are of a similar price though and are quite contemporary/slim fitting. Maybe worth a quick glance just so you have a few more to choose from:

    http://www.debenhams.com/webapp/wcs/...p%3B+tailoring

    http://www.moss.co.uk/mens-suits/962865327.html - OK not blue, but a similar style

    Debenhams seem to be selling a lot of suits for £60, not in the colour I want though =/ Would Burton possibly have what I'm looking for
    in-store?

    Edit: £60 for the blazer only

    Never mind, they are a bit darker than the one at asos.

    Reminds me of this suit actually. I'm conscious that it's a lot more expensive than the one you're looking at, and it might not be suitable for you as it's more formal and a bit lighter. But it is very nicely styled and excellent quality - I tried it on a couple of months back but I found the colour a little light for what I'd use it for. Would be a very good buy for £250 though if it's right.

    BTW it's about 15% mohair, 85% wool IIRC

    That's a little bit too expensive

    If I can't buy a blue one, I may buy a grey one in the same sort of fit etc. which should be easier to find cheaper. Thanks though

    Online they don't have much of a selection and are priced at about the same price as asos. Funnily enough one of the models in the video of M&S is the same as the one in the suit I want above

    I'll check in store though, so thanks

    Ha. I know I'm not male and dont wear suits but I would definitely advise spending a bit more on one especially if you plan to wear it a fair bit! M&S is definitely good quality! I have shoes from there and they are much better quality than normal high street stores.

    Burton

    I got a full suit, same colour, regular fit, wool not poly for less than the price of that jacket. You could get a MUCH better deal if you go for a regular fit.


    Dont buy online, defo go in person.

    I love ASOS suits/tailoring, they're so cool!

    But yeah that's pretty cheap though! I don't think you'll find one for much cheaper.
