If you’re running on a short Budget then read “How to dress well on Low Budget?”
Looking good doesn’t have to cost a fortune; Luckily, there are ways to upgrade your wardrobe without breaking the bank. To help you save a few pennies, this guide will teach you how to dress well on a budget.
Invest in classic pieces
Instead of looking for trends, start investing in classic pieces that won’t fall out of favor. Wardrobe basics – like button-ups, chinos and jeans – are not only timeless, but also extremely versatile. You might like the look of this bright yellow blazer, but how many times can you actually wear it? We recommend dressing well even on a budget by starting your makeover with a white shirt, navy suit, blue polo shirt and brown leather shoes.
Find the right fit
Buying matching clothes offers the easiest way to make your outfits more expensive. To make sure you get it right, just use the size charts to determine which size you should buy; If you are between sizes, you may want to see a tailor. A trained professional can take average to excellent jackets and pants, while most dry cleaners have someone on hand who can take care of pant hems and sleeve lengths. For perfectly fitted shirts, try our bespoke service. We take your measurements (and style preferences) to create a shirt that fits like a glove.
Quality before Quantity
Instead of buying cheap clothes and replacing them every six months, look for pieces that will stand the test of time. This may mean paying a little more than you would like, but it will definitely save you money in the long run. A well-made pair of shoes should serve you well for many years, while a quality suit or jacket will last you even longer.
Are you smart with your purchases? Sale isn’t for everyone, but if you’re on a budget, it’s a smart way to shop, especially if you know where to look. At The Savile Row Company, our clearance pages offer discounts on a range of products including shirts, suits and accessories all year round. Even better, they will be updated regularly as we continue to make room for new products.

- Buy clothes in the right size to make sure they fit you well
- Visit a tailor for alterations
