    Brioni for me. I save like bu66ery and buy one every couple of years. Set off nicely with shirts by Oscar of Sweden.

    I have to wear a suit every day (‘‘tis a very traditional school that I work in) so I keep an eye on eBay for decent second hand Next suits. Most I’ve spent is £25 plus dry cleaning for OK-ish wool suits. I refuse to pay more when on any given day, I could end up with chewing gum (or worse) stuck to me hence ruining them.

    Shoes on the other hand are almost impossible to find. On my feet most of the day so I’m always on the look out for something comfortable enough for that that aren’t going to tear my feet to pieces as they break in. Tried leather soles and nearly fell over a dozen times when it rained. Super shiny floors don’t you know.

    Thank you for reading (or not!)

    I tend to wear suits for most social occasions if I get the chance.
    I wore one for a job interview a few weeks ago. The job was for a conservation assistant which I got, however I don’t wear a suit for the job. As it turns out a conservation assistant gets to clean toilets both ancient and modern in the 16th century Manor House where I’m working.

    You can get rubber soles put on for £15.

    Then when that wears out you don’t need to replace the leather, just the rubber, and you don’t slip around.

    Yeah done that with one pair, it’s ok. I like a bit more cushioning though. And quiet soles are good for not making your presence known until you’re close enough to catch the little scrotes doing something they shouldn’t!
