I've never owned a turtleneck and I don't think I've ever worn saddle shoes.
Two solid navy and one pinstripe. I used to have two navy pinstripe suits, but I got rid of the one of them.
I already own several three piece suits and the next suit I purchase will definitely be a three piece. Its hard to believe that this discussion has gone on for eight pages long.
I don't like your tweed sir.....
In-store tailors at retail shops can be pretty good. Brooks Brothers has a name for quality, but I've never used their tailors so I wouldn't know.

The SF yes men also like to poo poo on the brown suit as it is "too casual" for the workplace or makes you look like a member of the SA. The white suit is sneered at as representing the Mr. Roarke from Fantasy Island look. God forbid anyone put on anything other than a blue, grey or charcoal suit.
