I'm sure many of you have had to face buying your first suit. Whether it was after graduating or before.
At the moment the only suit I have is some $50 one from when I was 14. I have never dared to wear it. If I have a job interview I go casual, which is supposedly considered "arrogant" . However, this does not help me acquire a job, so I'm looking to buy my first proper (non-14 year old) suit so I will no longer be cocky(turning off your phone helps too).
So for those of you working in finance related sectors or anywhere else requiring suits, could you share how much you spent on your first suit? $500? $1000?
Is it worth it shelling out what seems like exorbitant sums when your working P/T and still at college/uni?
How important is the quality of the suit when making a first impression?
