    Hi, unrelated to this but I want to get your thoughts on gaps on the cv. The thing is I have a 9 month gap now because I have made the money necessary to not jump into any old role. But how would employers take this? I mean its like they expect you to have no gaps no matter the circumstance.
    I don't think they'd be that bothered, they'd just want to know you'd done something besides watch Netflix all day. If all else fails just say you went on holiday for a bit and you're taking the time to select your next role (shows you aren't desperate and looking for anything).

    SA-1 Kenan and Kel bammy jastard 27 and all other sharp suit wearing dons.

    What's the best place to buy an affordable but decent slim fit suit?

    I was thinking Next.
    Next suits are extremely good for the price, ignore the person saying they're "poor quality". I own a lot of suits including two from Next and there's little difference between those and the ones I own from Ted Baker & Hugo Boss.

    Moss can be very good for the price too.

    I'm not saying only high quality suits give you a good fit and neither did I say having a high quality suit guarantees you anything. My point is when you want to make it/get noticed by prestigious brands & attract opportunity e.g. get promoted to say become a director or manager how you look becomes very important. You won't see top people at Goldman Sachs poorly dressed..
    Nobody on this thread is going to be interviewing for a management position at Goldman anytime soon.

    -I agree with you that fit is important.

    -I'm not saying only high quality suits give you a good fit and neither did I say having a high quality suit guarantees you anything.

You won't see top people at Goldman Sachs poorly dressed.

    -I think it's worth it to spend less than £200 on a suit that looks a lot better than a £80 you will get from next. The difference in look and quality is very noticeable...but anyway to each their own.


    SA-1 Usually a full Windsor knot, not a huge fan of French cuffs tbh and double monk straps are my favourite shoe.
    I worked in the biggest infrastructure group in the world. The CIO and Director wore suits from M&S, self-confirmed. I wore a much more expensive DKNY suit. You just end up looking like an arrogant tosser and they think "Who does this graduate think he is?". You can try to behave in a modest way etc but they will label you as arrogant anyway... that is the nature of people when they see flashy things. You have to remember that most people are poor despite their salaries, senior managers and the like. They are the people that don't have £10 to spare and are always complaining about their finances. They are the people in the circa 50% that don't have £100 in savings. When a young grad is walking around in a £300-400+ suit then they just get bitter feelings and they project that onto you.

    That is reality unless you are working at the top end of Goldmans... which I doubt is where people in this thread would be.

    Where do you guys stand on formal shoes? I've always worn brogues (black or brown depending on suit/occasion).

    Same, have a pair of long pointy ones but dont usually wear em. I'd invest in a pair of Doc Martens brogues if I were you. Best decision I ever made, honestly the most comfortable shoe, formal or otherwise I've ever worn tbh.

    I did have reservations about Depleted, but then he started sending me pictures of himself asking me to rate his beard out of 10.

    I really think Lucio and me leaving, killed TSR Football.

    Mainly Lucio

    I've never seen him offer any insight at all, he knows nothing about football and had probably been less games than fingers. He offers no jokes. He's just here, festering.
    That read like you saying Lucio leaving killed TSR
