Quote:The suit is here to stay for a while, but I fear it won't last much longer as the uniform of business. Â I would venture to say that the men who enjoy wearing a suit to work every day are vastly outnumbered by those who do not. Â The latter category tried hard to kill the suit as the business uniform in the late 90s. Â They almost succeeded. Â One more boom, and they may well. Â The suit does not have enough support to withstand that. After that upheaval, it will still be around, just worn much, much less. Â After all, the tailcoat has been around in one form or another for 200 years. Â It used to be worn every night in certain circles. Â Yet it is almost never worn any more. Â The suit will share its fate eventually, possibly very soon.
