Hi both my boys have interviews coming up plus a wedding, where can I buy them a suit that won`t cost me a fortune? My problem is they are both over 6ft but only have 28/30 waist! Thanks

Yes I have been scouring the shops for weeks, problem is the trousers are way too big. Will try Burtons. Thank you.

I got ds's suit from Next. He is 6ft and 28/30 waist. Was very reasonable if I remember correctly and has taken him to Prom, weddings, funerals and many interviews.

Next or machine washable from M&S

M&S - they do slim fit washable suits with small waists and extra long trousers.

River Island .dz 14 is nearly six feet but about 29inch waist.

Matalan. My godsend.

TheBuskersDog Tue 25-Mar-14 20:45:32

Topman skinny/slim fit suits.

I recommend M&S for 28 inch waist extra long trousers suits. My DS had to wear suits for sixth form and the cost of getting his suits drycleaned was fairly substantial as he wasn't beyond the odd bit of football in the school yard etc. M&S do machine washable suits - probably not something DH would go to work in, but perfect for DS and look reasonably presentable

Topman and as a side note primark women's skinny jeans in black for tall skinny teenage boys!

Topman Skinny or slim fit suits. They have an online sale at the moment and are true to size.

Top Man are good - but are a bit more ££

Maverick66 Wed 26-Mar-14 12:40:02

Matalan here as well .
Got my 15 year old tall skinny skinny son gorgeous suit for wedding
£75.00. Got him a shirt and tie for £7.00 (half price) they do short/reg/long in trousers and a 30 waist fitted him perfectly smile
P.s if there isn't one close by you they are online.

Success smile One suit bought in Tesco, jacket was reduced from £50 to £34, trousers were £16, two leather belts @£8 each, when they were scanned at the till they went through at £2!! So £54 total. Then went to Primark, no suits fitted and tbh looked shabby, but shirt and tie for £7. Next stop Matalan and yes £75 for a gorgeous blue slim fit suit! So that's the boys, just me and dd next, its me who will be the nightmare! Thank you all so much for pointing me in the right direction! x
