About £100 - £150. I'm thinking maybe £75 for the jacket and £50 for the trousers??

I have trousers. If link doesn't work properly they are the Christobelle ones.

I will wait and see if the jacket gets reduced at Christmas. Also have the violet top in the link (again if it worked).

All I need is an office to work in...

Sorry lovely lady. Am disillusioned with the world of HR.

ICod - sounds reasonable to me. Great fitting suits are hard to find IMO.

Wait for sales and go into somewhere like Austin Reed or Jigsaw for something plain and safe. At least that's what I used to do a million years ago...

I looove purple. But it doesn't suit me at all.

depends whether single season gimmick or multi season and estimated frequency of wearing. is it very memorable?

I'd spend £200 if I really loved it.

I reckon about £130 for a jacket and £80 for trews if they are nice. Lined trews are especially comfy and worth paying more for. I got a fantastic pair in GAP for aobut £40 ever to be repeated again.

I buy a lot of suits on Ebay - often they have been worn once, and go for a fraction of their original price.

If new, I reckon on 200-250, but I like suits where there are skirts and trousers so theres several looks from one suit.

Anniemac, the Maxmara price is sadly only for the jacket, although on a quick look I couldn't see that they stocked the trousers to match but would guess about another 150-170 for those. So Hobbs et al is cheaper.

I wonder if Max Mara Studio is a replacement for Marella?

Mind you my DH buys suits from Ted Baker which cost quite a lot more, but somehow justified by the fact that he buys two a year and wears them to death.
