Gentlemen, I just started a new job where I will have the pleasure of wearing a suit every day. The problem is, I only own one suit right now: a medium gray with light gray pinstripe Southwick made from a pretty heavy wool. I'm thinking that I should get four more suits, and I'd like to keep it under $2000. I'm working for a small law firm dealing with some very high-profile clients, kind of a young and modern but still conservative workplace, if that makes any sense. My instincts are to get four suits all priced around $500, a navy, navy with pinstripes, dark charcoal, and dark charcoal with pinstripes. I'm not sure if I should do it differently with colors or maybe get one nicer ($800ish) suit and make the other ones cheaper. A major plus is that I live in Manhattan and make frequent trips to Boston, so I'll have access to both C21 and Filene's Basement. Thanks in advance for your responses.
