Suits & ties etc. (for the lads)

This is one for all the men out there...

I was wondering where people buy their formal clothes from? I've got a suit from Next, and get the odd shirt or tie from there, River Island, or Debenhams - but where would you recommend going?

    I don't have any formal clothes.

    Except a pair of trousers I got from Topman and a few shirts, but their all "night out" shirts.

    I aint even got shoes :eek2:

    Shirts and ties from T.M. Lewin!

    Er, next is ok. Hmm, there's a good clothes shops owned by the house of freaser(sp?) *forget it's name* -John lews- maybe :confused:

    I normally know quite a few, but you've caught me on an off day.

    I'll try and tell you a few more tomorrow, I walk past enough of them

    I hate suits. It's a uniform invented by the Victorians, and has become a convention that has dictated the way men have been forced to dress for over a century now. :( They're bland and boring. Women can wear a huge range of interesting, colourful, great looking clothing, but men are expected to wear a boring, bland, suit. :( You can be smart without having to wear a suit, it just takes a bit of care and creativity.

    Yeah, but a suit is a suit all the same. I don't like them, they're all too similar.

    Hmmm, crossdressing, is there something you're not telling us? What goes on underneath your suit? No! I don't wanna know!!! :eek:

    I got my suits from some stores in Clacton Factory Shopping Village :D - though I've been wearing them 5 days a week for 2 years and they haven't stood the test of time that well - one has a hole in its inner pocket which means all my money falls down there and the other has a tear in the trouser leg where they're sown together at the bottom of the leg. But I got some shirts from Cotton Traders and they're excellent, not too hot but keep you warm and very comfortable. I only have one tie though, I got my dad a nice tie when I went to Italy a few years back it was a silk tie and it had skyscrapers painted on and was really nice. Mine's more boring (it came with the suit) and is just blue with lines like - - - - - across the tie.

    Suits you are good for smart suits and shirts. Top names as well as "cheaper" names.

    They always seem to have a sale on as well :confused:
