Some of us are still expected to wear a suit to work for the role we are in and my go-to place was always Munns. Any Wellington recommendations since their closure?

Mumms was cheap, but I never thought their advice was good, the lines available were dated and overall not a good value if you wanted quality.

 

Man to man has a good selection and good service - my pick at any time.

 

Mandatory Menswear has a nice selection of different, more modern styles.

 

Harfords Menswear is ok but I don't like the selection.

 

If I had money I would buy at Working Style.

 

There's also David Jones with some good selections.

Working Style - good quality, reasonable price, and they have a couple of sales a year (you've just missed one).

 

 

 

They will offer you a scotch with your suits too :)

I think Man to Man has a good price - high three to low four digits for 100% light wool. Working Style seems to start around $ 2k for anything I looked around there. Or perhaps is just my expensive taste...

Please don't kill me but Hallensteins have some good suits, plus I get 2 pairs of pants. Often the jackets outlast the pants.

I have one from Working Style I had made to order when I was working in Wellington. The only time I need a suit these days would be a funeral, I should think.

 

If I did need one, I would wait until the next time I was in Hong Kong or London.

I bought mine in Thailand. Tailor made they fitted like a dream... Up until the point I scaled back my exercise regime. They still fit like a dream but its a pretty damn scary one :-)

Been there. 

 

 

 

I have several very nice bespoke tweed jackets and things from my former life. I cannot part with them because they are so nice but I suspect I am dreaming if I think I will ever again wear them unless I get some dreadful wasting disease!

You must have very expensive tastes. Working style is generally high three to low four too

Usually Barkers Outlet @ Tawa Outlet City. They usually do a suit + 2 pants for $399 special. With tailoring on both jacket and pants, it was about $150 more.

My suit of 2 years has just recently died (pant’s crotch), probably from lack of regular dry cleaning, but I’ve just pulled the trigger on a made to measure from itailor.com. No idea how good it’ll be but that came out to $395 shipped, and whatever gst + customs fee gets slapped on.

You don’t want to regularly dry clean ( at least for a wool suit). I have to wear a suit every day and rotate so I don’t wear the same one twice in a week. I never dry clean suits unless something is spilt on them

Damn that’s some dedication with that kind of rotation. I don’t believe in needing to wear suits in this day and age (in IT) so I try to spend as little as possible.
