to get a suit around $200-$300. Just pounce when the dollar is high against the pound. The suits look great, or so thinks England's head coach.
That suit doesn't look like it fits him very well...
Are you high? It might not be the best Ocean's 11, Tom Ford fit in the world. But it looks pretty damn good. Especially for $300.
The suits worn by the English team (and head coach) were custom tailored for each individual on the team by Timothy Everest MBE (a Savile Row tailor), but were branded as M&S stuff thanks to a "Official Clothiers of the English World Cup Team" bit. M&S now is selling a knockoff of the Savile Row suits for a couple hundred bucks.
Even if this wasn't the case, picture Sears in your mind. Add a Super Target grocery section to your imaginary Sears. Have this combination Sears/Super Target pay big piles of money to be named the official clothier of the US Olympic Basketball team. Now picture some English person posting (on TopBritLawSchools.com) a picture of the Dream Team's coach wearing a Ralph Lauren Purple Label suit that Sears/Super Target was selling a cheap knockoff version of. Have this English person suggest that Sears/Super Target would be an awesome place for British law students to pick up a cheap suit based on the picture of the basketball coach, assuming that the pound/dollar exchange rate was looking good. Are you starting to see what's wrong with your suggestion yet?
As a general rule, you shouldn't purchase your suits at the same place you can purchase a refrigerator, the new Eminem CD, and a bag of frozen tater tots, regardless of which side of the Atlantic the store happens to be on.
