It is very likely that you spend a large amount of your time at work yet it is unlikely you know how much you should be spending on your work attire. There is no definitive answer to this question as the price you should pay for a suit really depends on your specific needs and wants.
There are three main components that make a suit – the fit, quality and style but the price a suit costs you will most likely be down where you are planning on wearing it. We have created a rough guide on how much you can expect to pay for a suit;

If you are looking for a suit for work on a daily basis then chances are you will want a classic looking suit that is durable. Our Performance and Fellini Traveller two piece suits are designed to be the perfect business suit as they are hard wearing, crease resistant and stain repellent.
