Good deal OP, great quality, ideal for court appearances and maybe the odd wedding and funeral.

This deal has been around for a really long time, but still decent. These suits are alright.

quick pointer: if you want suits for a job interview at a corporation, i guarantee you the interviewer will know that you're wearing a £20 suit. i work in consulting, and in interviews i can make out if a guy's wearing a marks & spencer suit, and given consulting is a heavy customer focused job where you deal with CEOs and higher level executives, that suit actually hurts their chances of getting the job.

invest in a good suit. it makes a difference. it's another thing for funerals or everyday use if you must, but avoid for interviews.

Dinner suit is good quality i picked one up last week for a works night and was well impressed

Little stock left - most normal sized people have to ask M&S to "email me when available".

i don't think many corporations expect interviewees, especially fresh graduates, to have the money to buy expensive suits. the money comes after you're given the job, which will happen if the organisation thinks you can contribute effectively. a suit can easily be upgraded, whereas a brain can't.

Likewise, I am a midget and I also had a reasonable choice.

Not sure if this deal is any good for 'Average' size peeps. :-D

Just out of curiosity - where would you reccomend getting a suit from then? Basically, I have a few of these cheap suits but I am about to buy a decent one. I was thinking of getting one of the M&S ones that are reduced to 120 from 200 but if I'm likely to spend 120 quid on a suit - where would I get a better one for the money? And would you consider a 200 quid M&S suit to be much better than a 40 quid one? I'm off to try some on tomorrow so I can order one over the web with a discount later.

What a stupid statement...for starters its not £20 (i agree that if its a £20 suit and the quality is very poor, but this is ok, not great just ok)

ive worked in IT/Telecoms as a consultant for 22 years (7 years as a freelance contractor and now a permie consultant)

I dont judge people on what they wear, i judge them on what they know (trust me the people who have your view are usually those who know very little!)

Sure, you shouldnt turn up scruffy but some M&S suits arent bad (not sure about these though)...anyway I wear fairly good suits - made to measure some time ago but now cerruti ones (oh and the occasionally M&S ones)

I deal with people at all levels and companies of all sizes....£millions to £billions

If 'I' was a CEO (yank speak for a boss I think) I'd be looking for someone who could cut costs, save my company money, knows how to look after a budget and is aware of the bottom line. Not someone who thinks the label in the suit is more important than the person wearing it.

I would say taking a deal like this is a sign of financial prudence, not a sign of poverty. Not sure how these suits will hold up to daily use though (e.g. jacket shoulders). Does anyone have one of these who can comment?

I got 2 Black Suits from the last promotion. Still wearing well, try to get 2 trousers for each Jacket. Boss, Wife & work mates all like them.

i like the cerruti suits (but they have cut the price and wuality now (mine were about £550 for 2 (were rrp lol £499 each)....they arent the same as the ones you get in the suits u or whatever its called....i got them as they fit me better than the M&S ones.....I also have some M&S ones (autograph and colleziene bought the sales for £49 each)...best to try some on......made to measure in this country is a joke, silly money (though there was what sounded like a reasonable deal somewhere (2 MOM suits, 2 MOM shirts and 2 ties for £1K, but most people cant justify that)....might be slightly cheaper to get 2 from Hong Kong including a holiday

Though some people have taken offence to this I must admit you are right. It is easy to spot a cheap suit and at the end of the day when you interview for a job first impressions are very important, so i can see where you are coming from.

On a side note i bought these last time the deal was on and they are ok, i work in IT though so i don't get to speak to people ;-)

What are you burbling on about???

The fact you apparently work in consulting ( recruitment LOL !) is neither here nor there..... and why would what they wear affect the views of someone?...your job is to put them forward if they're suitable....and I can guarantee if any right minded CEO etc found out you were judging people by the alleged quality of their suit, rather than their ability to do a job....you and your company would be out on your sorry a$$es!!

How stupid is that? On one page it says suits within the Outstanding Value range ARE included, and then later it says not the evening suit.

If your looking to get one of the expensive M&S suits for a good price, go to an M&S Outlet they sell them at about 60% off he original shop price.

Better still when we discontinue a suit the trousers go down to £13.99 and the Jacket down to £18.99 irrespective of the original suit price.

Thanks for the tip-off! Much appreciated. I will look to see if there are any in the Midlands...

These suits really are apoor quality. I'm not a suit snob, and i would not judge the ability of a person based on what they were wearing, but a £45 suit from tesco or matalan is far better quality. Trust me I bought 2 of these M&S suits about a year ago when they were on offer and they are the most ill fitting suits i have ever had.

If people in consulting assess people on their suit rather than their abilties it doesn't say much for consultants. Mind you, I've never had a very high opinion of consultants anyway. The best way for a company to waste its money is to hire a consultant - personally I'd rather have the M&S suit.
#34
Suits of 100% man-made materials are defintely noticeable, and will be noticed by people that are used to good suits.

Whether it effects your chances at an interview will depend on the job/company. The person that suggested against these suits is probably right for jobs like consulting. You will be out visiting clients and selling services, you'll be representing the Company, so the Company will care about the image you project.

For normal office jobs where you don't visit clients, then i think these are ok. Personally I would be looking for a suit that at least is part wool. 100% wool suits are the ideal, but can be expensive and can wear-out pretty quick.

In general though M&S makes some excellent suits. And at high-street prices you won't find anything a great deal better.

Though one thing last thing to note. How the suit fits is probably the most important thing. A mid-priced great fitting suit is going to look twice as good as an expensive suit that fits you like crap.

I reckon you have a pretty lame job and are quite insecure about yourself. That's just my opinion though. :)

That bloke and his CEO are having a laugh. I have been an IT contractor for nearly 20 years now and only wore expensive suits early in my career to make up for my lack of experience.

Anyone who looks at packaging rather than content needs to stop being a teenager.

Sorry, I can't resist this. You are trying to offer a heads-up. Would have maybe sounded better if you said something along the lines of " we judge people on how smart and tidy they look" Fair enough if the suit is tatty or needs cleaned, shirt wrinkly etc... Thanks to Tesco, Asda and M&S it's no longer an excuse for students etc. If you give them the job based on potential/ability then give them an allowance/loan to buy a couple of sharp suits if required.

Personally I wouldn't want someone in a £1000 suit and a Porche as they mostly will give the wrong impression.
