Men - how much are you spending on a single suit? And what brand or store?

When I started working I spent ~1800 on 2 beater SuitSupply suits (~700 each) with extra trousers (~200 per pair)

Now that office attire is extremely more casual, I still spend ~1500 on tailoring pieces here and there, but more for special occasions or nice dinners than as office attire. I think most jobs today don't really need suits anymore, but I would look at Spier & Mackay, Berg and Berg, Cavour, SuitSupply, or Ring Jacket for the conservative office suits


I have several Hugo Boss suits $500-$1000 (Suit supply would definitely be a better price-quality ratio tbh, brand don’t matter for shit. HB suit construction is meh compared to other luxury brands.) and one made to measure Italian Super 150 suit made by a local tailor ($2000) along with a custom shirt for special occasions with all the jazz (custom neck, cuffs, engraved initials etc.).


I’ve posted this before. I know it’s not for everyone but when kids were in school ($$$), I got in the habit of buying secondhand. For example, bought 2 Tom James handmade suits for $80 each that were originally about $1800. They were like new and I’ve worn them a couple hundred times. Bought Brioni too.


And yeah, a couple of things did not work out and I just donated them to Good Will.

600-800 from Suit supply or spier and mackay


Tailor made all. 700 USD for suits. 70 USD for shirts.

3k local bespoke tailor.
