    Hey,

    I'm starting a new (part-time) job on Wednesday as a Lettings Agent. I guess I really need a suit but unfortunately, I don't own one that fits at the moment and money is tight. I was looking around local charity shops this weekend but couldn't find anything my size. Anyway, I have a casual jacket which is fairly smart and I was wanted opinions as to whether it will be smart enough or not. I also wanted opinions as to whether I should wear a tie or not. I have included pictures so that you can comment. Bear in mind that although the job is hardly big business, I do have to look fairly smart when meeting up with landlords and showing potential tenants round properties.

    With tie:

    It's not a suite, but still looks fine to me. The jacket isn't that informal at all, and the tie adds that lacking elegance a suite can also offer. Good luck !

    Well, I will get a suit eventually. I think I may save up and get one at christmas. I'll probably either get a cheap George/Primark one or see what bargains I can snag in the charity shops.
