The Old Standard: Chanel suit
Just how much is a Chanel suit? I'm coming up with a list of things I want to treat myself to once I finish school and Chanel is on the list! How much will it set me back?

that much? I'm sure i've seen jackets for $1200+ so I imagine a skirt costing less but even if it was on par I thought starting prices were around 3? That said, you can get some great vintage ones at much lower prices but I'm not sure where you'd get them in the US or even Britain now that Steinberg and Tolkien has closed down.

They're not always $6k. Actually I've never seen them for that much. A friend got hers for $4k, about $4300 total at the Bev Hills boutique.

My girlfriend just got one for $6k+ before tax. Maybe some beads make it more expensive but at the very least we're talking about $4k+. Their skirts cost $1k+ to $3k.

yeah I meant to go back in and edit my post and forgot. I realized the prices I'd seen were in pounds. I would still say starting at 1500 pounds for a jacket....I've seen them as low as 800 though on sale....
