    Basically, my parents do not want to buy me an expensive suit, but they are probably prepared to buy one around the 100-250 mark
    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    Debenhams is always a safe bet for suits, or a sale in House of Fraser If you go to a suitmakers then you're more likely to get dress type suits that wouldn't be the right style for Sixth Form

    This may be a silly question, but I'm not sure if I've misunderstood...

    You want suits... To wear to Sixth Form.... On an everyday basis or?... Why? What's the need? I'm confused lol

    Never buy a suit from Next or Topman, for that price Marks & Spencer or House of Fraser are probably your best bet in terms of high street stores.

    When I was in 6th form, I got a Primark suit and an M&S one, the Primark one ended up fitting better and I returned the M&S one.

    Could go to TK Maxx, my current suit is a 3 piece Jaeger which I got for ~£300, maybe less. You're still growing though, it's a waste tbh (except maybe if you buy one that's too long and get it tailored so you can let out the length again later).

    Giorgio Italy in Wood Green sell very good quality suits for that price range. My brother got his from there.
