 Well, I certainly don't envy you that part of it! I hope that it's at least to a nice location so that you can enjoy the one day a week that you have off.  I think that you could even get away with just two suits if you wanted to, one in navy and one in grey, and then increase the number of shirts and ties so that you can mix-and-match more. 
 The colours look a bit saturated, so the jacket probably isn't as bright or "denim-like" in real life.  I'm pretty sure that I've got that same tie (is it a Vanda tie, Gerry?) and the blue overcheck isn't that iridescent in real life.
