I see a lot of people buying expensive designer OTR suits for crazy money, but the thing that has always boggled me is often people generally only buy one pair of trousers with the set, sometimes because thats all that is available and they dont sell the suits with two pairs. For me, suit jackets last about 2x longer the trousers (just the nature of how much more abuse trousers take in general) so when I buy a suit it ALWAYS has to have two, and even (depending on the cost...
