Hubby picked up a new suit at Tesco, priced £31 for the jacket, £14 for the trousers.
Got to the checkout and they went through at £20 and £10 respectively. A full suit promotion, not a pricing error!

The suit is lined, and from what I could see comes in jacket sizes 29 - 48, small/reg/large (sleeves), and the trousers in standard sizes, 29-33 leg.

A lovely suit for the price and worth picking up for job interviews, summer weddings etc.

I don't think any suit for £45 can be classed as "decent", sorry. Just my opinion.
#2
Voted hot - what a bargain.

Have to disagree entirely with Nottmsteve - as these folks have bought it, and they consider it decent that's good enough. OK it's not Versace etc which you may think is 'decent' but it's 90% cheaper than a Versace pair of trousers alone.

As said by OP great value especially for youngsters going for first job interview or folks returning to the workplace etc and can't afford to layout £300+ for a more upmarket suit.

Good find, thanks for posting KittyKate

Decent doesn't have to be Gucci, it's decent enough for us poor minions who can't afford a £2000 suit

Whats you problem did i say it was not a good deal !!! Have a think before you write your rubbish and whats the problem spending £30 on a tie :x

To be fair - your comment that you've spent more on a tie came across as a bit of a snub which was obviously not intended. Okay - you may not have said that it was not a good deal - but you didn't actually say it was either which is why your comment was misinterpreted. However the response to your comment was a bit full on :shock:.

Come on folks - let's just get on :thumbsup:

My partner has a very good job, and doesn't need Gucci suits to do it well. In fact, most posers here in the city are the ones with the least pay. The Tesco suit looks and feels nice, washes & presses well, and at the price, you can buy five or six for the price of a Burton or Next suit, which are often made in the same place, anyway.

This isn't a value branded suit, it's just a good deal, and I was sharing it with other no-nonsense buyers. Your opinion is not really relevant.

Thr trouble is that no-one knew what you meant but yourself :-D and please don't worry about clearing anything up for me as I'm just trying to diffuse the situation. As I said in my last post - the reply to your post was a bit full on so I don't think I need to comment on that again do I or are you just pressing home a point here?

The way the thread was worded, imo implied that this deal is good based on what you are getting for your money. Why would someone want to brag about buying a tie?! No need to bicker :whistling:
Great deal for the suit!! I know plenty of college leavers going for an interview who would love this and the fact that they own a suit makes it even more exciting for them. Voted hot!

Quite.

I wouldn't call any suit made of polyester "decent", or even "wearable".

Think this is a great deal for anyone after a cheap suit, the quality isn't exactly hugo boss but if you're on a tight budget these aren't half bad.

Charity shops. Honestly. You can often get good brand name suits (pure new wool rather than polyester) in good condition for £10-15. Obviously, M&S, Burtons etc. are the most popular there because they sell most, but I've picked up Gieves and Hawkes, Boss, Versace and DAKS and other suits for less than £20 (and sold a few on ebay afterwards too). Just make sure you're buying a neutral classic cut suit. Then get it dry cleaned for £10 ish too.

Just watch the cuffs, and internal pockets (where pens get clipped) and the crotch area on the trousers as these are the areas that get most wear.

Failing that, this is a good option (nor brilliant quality, but good value). But not really any different to alot of other suprmarket clothing.
#18
If you have a M+S outlet near by they have some cheap suits, i got a Italian made 100% wool suit for £60 :thumbsup:

I'll wager half the people saying what bad quality this suit is have never even clapped eyes on it.

Well I have, and for the money it IS a decent suit. The Asda value one, which I think was a full suit for something like £19, was horrible. Unlined, shiny low threadcount polyester, refused to iron etc.

This is a nice suit. The pinstripe is woven not printed (which I've seen in Burtons @ £120!), the lining is nice, the weight is good. It is well finished, inc buttons/seams etc, and the fit is excellent.

I would say that most people dissing it purely on the basis it is 'too cheap' (or too good a deal?) or from a supermarket would struggle to select it as the 'sore thumb' in a line-up of suits twice the price (without looking at the label, of course).

I have seen a lot of this behaviour on HUKD recently. If you think you are better than a deal, or 'wouldn't be seen dead in it/wouldn't put that **** in your body' (as with the Asda 4p curry sauce!) then don't post. I'm sick of being made to feel like a cheapskate by people who would happily go out and burn their money (sorry but anyone who'd spend £30 on a tie which wasn't for their wedding or some other very important event is a total mug in my opinion).

This is a money saving website and I post deals to help people out. If others are above it, I suggest you keep your comments to yourself.

Yup - I agree too.
I was gobsmacked at the deal; and as stated the fact you bought it adds credence to the fact it's a bargain.

It's one thing to see what looks like a bargain and not buy it - it's another thing to see it, consider it, inspect it carefully and decide to buy it yourself.

Keep 'em coming KittyKate.
There are many out here who appreciate good spots like this to make our hard earned money go a little further !

You can have an opinion on the price (which can be nothing but a deal) but you cannot have a valid opinion on the suit until you've seen it and looked at the quality yourself. So no, you opinion is not relevant in the slightest.

Thanks OP, heat and rep :)

Hi,

Ive just returned from Tescos, and although I try and shop at my local greengrocers, eat meat from my local butchers etc, I HATE to say it, but this is a good deal. M+S, even DAKS, suits are made in the far east at times.

Anyway, I have a cracking job, live comfortably, but can't resist a good deal. I work on construction sites, so this type of suit is great for me. If it wears out in 6 weeks, who cares?

I hate people thinking just because a suit is inexpensive, it looks naff. Team it with a quality pair of shoes, a crisp ironed shirt, and a clean tie (all of which can be picked up from charity shops/ebay if you dont want to spend a fortune) and you're onto a winner.

Any way, im off to bribe the wife to turn up my trousers for the two new suits Ive just bought...The Zen MP3 player I just bought her should help....

Good post.

and chances are it was made in the same factory as this suit! he he. I worked in wholesale manufacturing and 'designer glasses' were made in exactly the same factory using much of the same material as those from next or similar high street retailers and the priced point varied hugely.

don't know why you're all jumping on waterloo, all he said was he has spent more on a tie....meaning this suit is damn cheap...implying good deal

So you gazed into your crystal ball and from that you have decided that I haven't seen it?
I have seen it. Yes, it's worth £30, but I'd hardly call a hot deal something being sold for what it's worth.

Personally I find your comments not relevant as it was based purely on assumption

I'm not saying you're fibbing, but at no point do I post a pic of the suit nor mention which one it is (my local Tesco's superstore has loads). So you can hardly say for sure whether the one I bought (the deal was on all £45 suit sets) was worth £30, because there is more than one.

Anyway, I'm so glad that this deal has made the front page because despite the squabbling it's a great deal no matter whether it's for a 'use once' suit or for those who wear a suit every day.

And yes, I'll keep posting deals.... :-D

That was prob a promotion.....
There is a suit for £130 in M&S that is italian wool from the "slim fit collection" but never had any instore. I ended up paying £200 for mine :( as i needed it pretty quick for a wedding and wanted something that will last and look good after every dry clean!

To help any possible buyers the suit in question is more than perfect for a cheap suit....obviously if you want a suit that will last and look fab then wool it has to be along with more cash but for job interviews or work this is a great buy

Oh my tie was £10 and is silk :p

Dunno why you would think it's OK to turn up for work or an interview in a cheap suit, (presumably reserving a better one for social occasions)?

If ever you want a better job/salary then it is worth investing in good quality clothing because it sends out the right messages about you and your attitude to employers.

If you are going after an important job and are reading this, do yourself a big favour and beg, borrow or save enough money to invest in the best quality outfit you can.

Not only will you look better, you'll feel better and that extra confidence will transmit during the interview. You'll even find the confidence to negotiate a better salary and thus keep you in work suits for the year:thumbsup:

As long as you look smart, it shouldn't matter to the employer what your suit is made of or how much it cost. If an employer didn't give me a job based on what I was wearing, that employer doesn't deserve to employ me.

What you just said, in my opinion, is completely ridiculous.
