    How much should your first suit cost? And how many should you have?

    I'm applying for job positions within the IT sector and just needed a bit of advice.

    I only have one and it's not really that expensive, and looks okay. I don't wear it to work but I do wear it to interviews and it suffices to be honest. as long as it doesn't look odd or stand out for the wrong reasons.. I don't think it matters too much

    Unless you intend to get a lot of use out of it I'd say spend £200 max

    As much as you can afford. But it's more important that it fits properly, i.e. the trousers are the correct length and it's not to wide across the shoulders. Navy or charcoal (not black) are most correct. But this is all very City advice - I would have thought you could be much more relaxed (but still professional) in I.T.
