The Cuch suit didn't come from a thrift, it same from a Saks off 5th. In Florida. In Orlando. Ouch! http://www.styleforum.net/t/480919/the-official-thrift-discount-store-bragging-thread-part-ii-return-to-the-thunderdome/20700_100#post_8186244
Want to be even more wowed? Do a search on the thrift/discount store bragging thread to find out what he paid for it!
Gotta say, as a professor in a business school, seeing those inventory backlog pictures makes me pull my hair out. Would you keep boxes of dollar bills like that? Because that's what you've got right there. Those boxes are full of money you've spent, money that you could be spending, or money that could be working for you.

You know, its funny you mention that. I was looking at a jacket last week that I own several of (Brooks Brothers Fitz in 40R) and the pit to pit seemed way off. I was going to ask about it but then I thought "who am I to question Spoo's measuring" so I didn't!

At formal campus interviews, its pretty much 100% suits for the job talk. Side note: I've taken two candidates out to dinner in the last week. Neither of...
From my perspective anything that involves a jacket and a tie resolves to "suit" in the mind of those doing the interviewing.
Late on the response, but, while I wouldn't agree with the "pathetic" comment, I can understand a little about the aversion to wearing suits at a conference. And this from a SF member who loves dressing well.

I was recruiting for assistant professor positions this year, and when you walk into the...
