Yup!
My local Asda has this too. Buy the jacket for £19 and get the trousers free.

Are they stitched so badly you have to lean to the right?:oops::whistling:

Yeah...they are so cheap they didn't have sufficient material to finish the right side..

Be prepared to get an electric shock while wearing one of these. Cheap and nasty, just like the food.

saw this when i was in great yarmouth too
voted cold... just because of the quality

its a bin liner:-D

i have 1 of these there great just got nights out if for a mess about whats the point in getting a £50 suit just incase they get ruined ? wouldnt get this if going for a job interview but just for litte things there great voted hot

I have never understood this logic.
What makes a tin of heinz beans any less good when it's bought from Asda of Lidl than if it's purchased from Waitrose or Sainsburys..?

Rubbish suits yeah, but sheesh, what a snob you are.

I already have 3 pairs of them and they are going well even after machine washes, and I'm not yet dead. I wouldn't mind seen dead on these either. :thumbsup:

if there's something this world needs, it's sweatshops working harder, and being paid less.

just think of the profit on a boss suit!!!

Suit you sir! :whistling:

Ideal if you're going to court and could possibly get sent down. Not too much wasted on a suit.

Or good for those interviews at McDonalds.

This is proof that there is no such thing as cheap and cheerful. There's either cheap and miserable, or expensive and cheerful ;-)

Further, I'd hate to think at how these suits were made, and by whom they were made. I would doubt these are very "fair trade" at that price.

Perhaps the person who said their food was cheap and nasty meant the Smartprice range.

I'm sure you have lots of clothes that aren't very fair trade either without you realising it.

£19.99 for a suit.
Your having a laugh.
They should advertise it as a disposable suit. Wear it once and that's it!

Blackale.No....he's hardly a snob...he is however a miserable faced troll who does nothing other than moan and whinge on here....so the problem is his. You really wouldn't want to live inside his sour and bitter excuse of a brain......:roll: he makes Victor Meldrew seem like Frankie Boyle....

The suits are what you'd expect for £20.......i.e. not very good...but on the basis that ASDA regularly win Supermarket of the Year awards etc etc then overall they must be doing something right.

Personally, I wouldn't buy it for £20........ I wear suits every day...so it's one area I personally won't skimp on quality... but for those who need one as a one-off or whatever, go for it!

I saw these in the Govan store yesterday.

They look like good suits to wear to job interviews for jobs you dont want, or perhaps to wear to court when you are guilty (presumably why sold in Govan).

Model Robert displays the trousers (which are free with the suit) featuring braces and organic string accessories.

Anyone got a pic of the actual suit? Thanks

why??
at least they are making some effort to be smart
you probally couldn't tell the difference between this and a £50 one

Because a £50 one will be just as **** quality

Which is why it is a good deal... LMAO, some people...

Possibly. But they didn't say that.
It's interesting that a lot of "own brand" food is actually the same across different stores. One example is the Tesco "Finest" sausages...Sainsburys sell identical sausages, made on the same line using the same recipe at a factory in Hull. Interestingly, Lidl sausages are also identical. The only thing that changes is the outer sleeve.
Wine is a similar product. ALL Californian export wine comes from a single factory (Looks more like a chemical plant with the giant tanks and pipes etc). The only thing that changes is the label and bottle..
Next time you are drinking an expensive californian Shiraz from Waitrose just remember it comes from the same storage tank as a cheapy Netto Californian Shiraz...

The manager in our local Asda wears one!!
To be honest it's nothing special but you don't look at it and think it's one of the £19 ones. It's just a black suit, nothing more, nothing less.

Exactly
Someone in this suit going for a job would look a lot smarter than someone wearing a £100 tracksuit or designer jeans and sweaters ,and for £19 it's a steal

I'd be really interested to know how many Bangladeshi schoolchildren it takes to make one of these suits?

in asda suit u can only work in asda



i work in asda part time while at university, i already have one degree and i am studying for my second, i am certified by microsoft and the BCS. Do you think i need to wear one of these?
Your logic is stupid, it may not be something you or i would buy but other people will. Keep your stupid comments to yourself, not everyone who works in asda is stupid you know.

Probally one if they are good ,but then who cares (be be honest ) as long as its cheap

Fair Trade only works on items they can persuade us to pay a small premium on, ie coffee, tea, and chocolate. As workers, we spent generations being exploited by the mill owners during the Industrial Revolution (and by landowners in pre-industrial times) which is similar to what our cheap clothing buys, as well as some of the more expensive ones, are doing to workers in Mexico and China. Won't vote hot on principle, plus the cut of the suit and material will make most people look pretty awful in one of these. If you're looking for a decent suit for a good price, M+S Outlet stores often have complete 150 quid suits for around 50, and you get BNWT Zara and All Saints suits for 50ish on ebay all the time too. I can't vouch for these being any more fair trade, but the tailoring and material will be much better for just a few quid more.

My local has more expensive suits in their current half price sale which work out only a couple of quid more than this and look better if you can find them...

Blah blah blah. Change the record.

:lazy:

Brilliant deal for someone like me that only needs a suit about once every two years(wedding or funeral), and it just gathers dust in the wardrobe the rest of the time. After this time the style is usually out of fashion and you dont want to wear it anyway.
The last suit i bought was £175, i only wore it once and in a couple of years it looked really old fashioned.

Deffo hot from me.
