Whether you are a girl or boy, supermarkets (Asda - George and Tesco) have decent stuff for something like a job, Matalan as well. And they aren't horribly expensive.

I was in there a while ago and they had some, they were only about £40 too. Failing that, Asda's the only other place I've seen them really...

Primark doesn't seem too bad but some of the suits in Tesco are just awful. If you don't mind spending about £70 then Next is good, that's where my suit is from.

i brought my suit from T K Max for my 6th form. It wasn't exactly cheap but it's Ted Baker so fantastic quality. It cost £300 from Ted Baker and I got it for £175 in TKMax - bargain.
I don't know if you want to spent that much but there are always bargains in that shop if your willing to look around.
Tesco do do suits but the quality is not great tbh. I think a cheap one from there would cost less than £50.
M&S do nice suits but i haven't fot a clue on prices unfortunately.

i dont get how a suit can really look cheap? as long as its not got holes in it then it should look fine shouldnt it?
i was kind of hoping to spend £30 max.. ive already got black trousers, do you think it would be ok to just buy the coat part of the suit (or whatever you call it), or would that make it look crap since the trousers and coat might not be the same material?

The guy on big brother wears a suit from ASDA, imagine they are really cheap.

Primark will probs be more stylish though... They sell suits for women, not sure about men

I believe the current cheapest on the market is Asda (George) from what I read a couple of months ago. It's quite nice too- not too shiny. M&S is also reasonable (£20 trousers,, £30 jacket from what I've seen)

unfortunately as with everything you can tell when you spend a lot of money on something. The cheapest suit are made of some polyester or whatever and a expensive suit will be made of wool or even cashmere and you can really tell the difference. It also depends on what you'll be do doing. if you going to be in an office with suit on the back of a chair or something then yer a cheap suit will be fine. However if you going to be meeting people having a lot of contact and generally wearing it a lot investment in a nice suit is well worth it, not only because it will be more comfortable.

One more thing the person who will be benefiting from a nice suit will be you- you really can tell the difference.

Congratulations by the way on your new job

Yes, but if he buys a suit from Primark it'll look like a bin bag. You can really tell the difference between a cheap suit and an expensive suit.
