You may have read our suggestions on graduation outfit ideas for ladies, but we know that it can be just of a dilemma for men too.

Many of  you will be donning your best suit, but we’ve scoured well-known brands to find out where you can pick up an outfit that’s a little bit different.

If you’re looking for a bargain suit, than M&S start their black trousers range at £15. From slim fit to straight leg, these are likely to be the pair with one of the highest quality:value ratio.

These smart-casual cotton trousers from M&S are well-priced at £25. They can be used for a lot more than graduation, and the Light Stone pair could easily be dressed up with a smart shirt and a blazer.
If you’re looking for a simple white shirt, H&M do one for £9.99. It also is available in blue, grey, and black.

For more patterned shirts, Next do a taped one for £20, while H&M do a wide range of checked shirts for under £20, including this Poplin one, which comes in green, red or blue. 



For £79, M&S do a range of full suits, including slim fit, machine washable, and big&tall. If you’re going into office work after graduation, one of these could be a good investment.

Finally, the all important jacket. Aside from the standard black blazer, something like this cotton and linen jacket from Next may suit your taste. At £85, it isn’t a cheap buy, but both the grey and blue versions could be used for much more than graduation.
