One thing about me: I'm a suit girl. No matter the weather, or occasion, a suit is what you'll find me most comfortable in. There is something about a good boxy shape and a uniform silhouette that feels relentlessly safe. And while on the weekends I'll always be compelled to bust out a crop top, my professional self is best experienced while suited up. So much so, that the question I'm often asked is: Where to buy a great suit. Personal style and preference is certainly a deciding factor in your suit purchasing journey. Perhaps you're looking for a more feminine silhouette to dip your toe into the suit world, or perhaps you're unbothered by flattering cuts and are aiming for something large, boxy and in charge. Either way, a well made suit with expert tailoring is the key to finding a dream suit, and it's the piece in the wardrobe that we will seldom skimp on due to their longevity from both a quality and style perspective.
If budget is getting in the way, however, a trip to your local op shop men's tailoring section and you'll be surprised at how fruitful the results can be for a fraction of the price. If you're looking to expand into more oversized silhouettes, this is the perfect place to start. Otherwise, below is a round up of our favourite destinations to buy a suit. Happy exploring.
