I bought one of these in Matalan a few weeks ago and it was awesome for the money.
The jacket is £20 and the trousers are £10.
Combine that with the Sun voucher and you can have a decent looking suit for £25!!
When I bought mine (in store) they were also giving away a free shirt and tie set with it. Yippee!

Good in the current climate...........just beware of static shocks off shopping trolleys whilst wearing it. lol

Anyway........Hot from me.

i see you are a monkey aswell

:thumbsup:I get all of my work suits from Matalan as they are machine washable too. They last a good amount of time and wash really well.

A big thumbs up from me :thumbsup:

Monkey see ... Monkey do.

I wore mine to a wedding and I kept getting people telling me how smart I looked.
Quite nice fabric too - no electric shocks at all.

I should hope you didnt have any electric shocks or noone would buy it!!

I usually buy th suit trousers there as they fit well and not too shiny. Last a year or so of constant wearing. Matalan suits cant touch a real quality one but for the price you can't really complain! After getting a Ben Sherman suit for £90 though I won't be buying my suits from Matalan anymore. Heat added!

Thanks for the post Monkey1964 I've added the retailer to your title ...

Giving away a shirt and tie too? That is a complete package. I bought one of their machine washable suits a couple of years ago and it's faired me very well. I think perceivable quality of fabric is less noticeable with colours other than black. Somewhat pot luck whether or not they will be the right cut for you though so best to go try them on yourself. Shame my local Matalan burnt down...

Perfect for 'the accused'!! :-D

Gerald Ratner famously said about his products "Ratners' has got very little to do with quality. ... I say because it's total c**p

Same applies to Matalan/ Primark!

bargain suit, thx

unfortunately i had to buy one for a funeral...all the same top quality suits and a value for money deal.

Good spot - can anyone please tell me which day the sun voucher was/is in? Thanks x

Apparently the fire was started from an unknown static electrical discharge in the suit department. (Allegedly).

Voted hot.... cant go wrong for £30, thats not even 8 pints of Guiness!

where the hell are you buying your pints of guiness?

3.75 a pint? rip off!

to be honest this seems to be a standard price as I bought a striped one for £25 in last years new years sale... It's almost as good as my £100+ ones though in quality!

Hooray and well said salcapone72. I can't believe anyone would want to be seen dead in a 25 quid suit!! Real classy.

Whilst I wouldn't buy one of these, I think it's down to different people with different standards, and there's nothing wrong with that.

What is with Matalan? My local one in Birmingham (Stechford) also burnt down. Back up and running now though! Must be the suits :whistling:

I have lets say a well pricey suit from Debenhams cant even remember the name, and i got a £30 from Matalan (some time ago), i find myself wearing the Matalan one for frequent use and wear the expensive one for the odd occasion I just cant imagine myself ruining a good suit and having to worry about it constantly so being sensible outweighs being "classy" in my view. each person to their own and how much money they have.

same here, although my cheaper ones are around a £100 but since I started getting them I wear them more frequently to work keeping the expensive ones for special days, etc.


It's a shame that people think wearing a matalan suit is improper or they wouldn't be seen dead in one! One of the managers I knew used to wear matalan suits and proudly say that he's only spent £xx on it when we were spending £xxx.

HOT from me, great price :thumbsup:

In my experience a cheap suit always looks like a cheap suit even from 30 feet away. Poor quality cloth never hangs as well as good quality and if I see someone wearing what I consider to be a poor quality suit I will judge them on it. Just the same as I will judge them if they are wearing grey shoes. So yes, I am a snob about certain things. If you can be bothered to find one that actually "fits", ie short, regular or long fitting or have adjustments done properly then something from Next or Debenhams can look really good if you go for a decent cloth and avoid the crimplene (they always run out of criples before they make the last two inches of the trousers). We all like a bargain but there are certain things you shouldn't compromise on. Far better to have on halfway decent suit than four **** ones.

Thats great my husband needs a suit but is just to tight to spend out, even he would spend that. Thanks

Some people would probably be seen dead in one literally,a good suit to be buried in at that price:whistling:

Just so long as it isn't an open coffin !!!

A suit is one of those things you really shouldn't skimp on. If you are going for an interview of a remotely well paid job

I really advise against wearing a cheap polyester suit, anyone who knows anything about suits will spot it a mile off and the last thing you want is to be sat in the reception with 3 other candidates and your suit is shining under the lights lol

I can't believe you s l ag off this cheapo suit and then quote next and debenhams as being able to provide quality ones!!!

At least quote boateng or canali or some brand similar if you want a reference suit.

Paul Smith if you please, but just trying to be realistic and not too snobby. However, one that actually fits right in a reasonable cloth would probably be better than an Armani that doesn't fit. There is though no excuse for the kind of cheap tat that pass as suits in Matalan - don't do it!

Translation of your posts here "Snob snob snobbity snob snob"

I wear a suit every day and couldn't care less if they look expensive or not. They're machine washable and available in short, regular or long fittings.

FFS, £30 for a suit is a gret deal and shouldn't be viewed with contempt becuase you prefer to spend more money on a suit. f it does the job, then it isn't an issue and forcing your snobbery down othe rpeople's throats is not on.

ok for me to wear for wedding and funerals as it the only time i ever wear a suit. i dont see the point in spending a few hundred for something i will maybe wear once or twice in the next 10 years.

i never wear a suit but this seems ok for the money and primark always seems rammed so somebody likes them

Don't forget George @ Asda are doing a Tuxdeo suit for just £35 .
My sis was after one she had to get a store transfer from Mk to Cambridge.
The lady at MK store said came out today they had already sold 5 complete suits by noon!!

Was given a right up in Mail on Sunday

Machine washable

Bargain !!!!

Great value for money and wash well. I buy a few for work and rotate them. Ideal if you want to look presentable but work where a good suit might easily be ruined. Oh - and no use for court appearances - they fit.

I'm not a snob!!!

I have loads of Primark and matalan "casual" clothes in my wardrobe. However, when it comes to something like a suit I agree with honkytonkin that it is better to have one good quality one than loads of poor quality ones. I bought a suit in 2002 for around £200 from M&S and even now, 6 years later and after numerous trips to the dry cleaners, the suit looks new.

I'd like to see what this £30 suit will look like in 6 years time and after a couple of trips to the cleaners!
