My SO is almost as into it as I am. She was the one who convinced me to buy a seersucker last year, and to get a custom suit this year. (She even went to help me pick out fabric). While she is reluctant to spend $$ on herself, she always tells me to buy when Im on the fence because "I deserve to spoil myself." All the more surprising is that she is only 24. This is one lucky guy.
my wife is good about it, but then I really don't spend much on an ongoing basis, and I really do need clothes for work. the one time I felt busted was when I bought some bespoke shoes, and the credit card company called to verify, because it was a large expense in hungary. so she heard from them before I told her, and that was a little uncomfortable.

I don't know that I agree with this. Â Acceptable, sure. Â But a staple?
I meant staple in that it is a light-colored spring suit. Not that it is glen plaid, altho I find tan glen plaid (and black and grey for that matter) to be a timless classic. Then again, I've been wrong at least twice in my lilife
