blair003: +1 to the Cambridge outlet store on dominion road.
Even better, you can go to this amazing cafe which is just up the road
/yes, blatant plug.
blair003:Handle9: Cambridge outlet store is very good and super cheap. I got a new 100% wool suit for $250 just before Christmas. Not the best suit in the world but still a quality suit from a good manufacturer.
+1 to the Cambridge outlet store on dominion road.
I got 2 suits (one with a spare pair of pants, so 2x jackets and 3x pants) from there late last year for around $550. It may not be "the best suit in world", but I don't think you can get much better even for double the price.
Given you are in Auckland you should at least go in and try a few on. If you go to another store you could easily spend more than $550 on a single suit which may not even be as good.
A mate has been trying to persuade me to order online from Marks & Spencer. Good wool suite for under 200 pounds and (apparently) you upload all your details such as arm length, shoulders and inside leg etc when ordering to get a good fit. Haven't tried it yet, but he has bought 3 and recons it's a good deal. May try it when I want a new one.

spronkey: I've had good luck with Scriber and Marks for good suits with good prices. They're in Dressmart in Aucks IIRC.
There's also Working Style, who I'd definitely recommend, but they aren't cheap - you'll get a damn good suit from them though.
Check out some of Rembrandt's stores - www.rembrandt.co.nz - they sell decent suits.
You can occasionally find some OK stuff at Tarocash stores too.
Avoid anything that isn't 100% wool for a daily wearer. Also avoid Hallensteins, Barkers, Farmers, Meccano. Also, if you find something that you really like get it with two trousers.
Came in to thread to say this. Unless you want to spend an a$$ load, try the ones spronkey recommended and avoid the cheapo places. A $200 suit is a $200 suit is a $200 suit nomsayin?
