I'm an American moving to London to work with a large magic circle law firm (working in capital markets with bankers), and I'm preparing to build a new wardrobe (suits, shirts, ties, etc.).
I'm planning on having several made-to-measure suits (looking at propersuit,com) tailored before I head over, but I'm completely unfamiliar with the style. Should be looking at skinny peaked lapels? Or are those out of style now? Do I want to try and get the suits to be as fitted as possible, with a short jacket? Or would it really just be smarter to look for suits once I head over there?
Also, what type of shirts should I be looking at? Is the wide english/london spread too much? Or is this still common? Is it standard to go for the french cuffs or is that too much for an entry level/analyst type position?
