George gets women dressed for success for just a fiver

With the nation cash poor at the start of the New Year work clothes may not be the top priority, however George can now offer women a work outfit for just £5.00.

 

Following the phenomenal success of the George £15.00 suit for men which flew off the shelves earlier this month, women have demanded that they also bag themselves a bargain. 

Available at just £5.00 for the set until the 26th February, the outfit consists of flattering black boot cut trousers and a classic flattering white shirt. 

The George outfit is the perfect New Year antidote and a ‘fiver-a-day’ solution, so customers wanting a new outfit for everyday of the working week will only have to part with £25.00.   

Similar best priced outfits would set you back £22.50 form M&S, £28.00 from Next and still cost you £20.00 from Tesco. 

George has found that in a study of 1,000 women, 91% regard black trousers and a white shirt essential office wear and will choose this combination at least three times each week. 

Although this is a bargain at £5.00, the George Formal Wear team have created a timeless outfit that focuses on quality, design and fit.

They work tirelessly throughout the year to produce great designs for their customers, and whether you are a size 8 or a size 24 - tall or small, they believe that all women can feel empowered and project a professional, competent look at the office.  

"Office staples can be stylish but they do not have to be expensive. This versatile outfit from George is great for the office, but would work equally well for an evening out, dressed with a stunning piece of statement jewellery and high heels,” said Fiona Lambert, George's brand director. 

To bring customers the suit at such fantastic prices George buys material by the mile rather than the yard. 

It then passes these cost savings, delivered by economies of scale, directly to customers through tiny margins. 

The way that George has sourced the suit also means you can pick it up with a clear conscience.   

Its dedicated sourcing team has ensured that it is sourced in line with the Ethical Trading Initiative's code of practice. 

 

 

This is achieved by having long term relationships with a smaller number of factories that are shared with other well known high street stores, through regular independent audits and by George colleagues regularly visiting factories. 

 

 

George has a zero tolerance approach to abuse of any kind.  If examples are found the retailers works with the supplier to put things right.

 

The outfit is sourced from Vietnam. The smart work outfit comprises black bootcut trousers and a flattering white shirt with a size range of 8 to 24. To ensure that no one misses out on this fantastic offer, George have also ensured the trousers are available in short, regular and long lengths.  

The George shirt is a cotton and polyester mix while the trousers are 100% polyester, making this outfit easy on the purse and easy on ironing. 

The suit follows in the footsteps of a tuxedo at £35, a full school uniform at £9.96 a wedding dress for £60 and this January’s £15.00 suit for men.
