I'm in a bit of a jam. I'm going to be headed over to Tokyo for the next two months and, for at least one month, I will have to be well outfitted with a few suits. I'll be doing an internship at a law firm, so I'm going to have do the whole dress-up bit. There are two problems: The first is that I only own one suit, a black one from about 6 years ago that apparently was bought while I was high because it's like 3 sizes to big for me. I've read a few threads on versatile work type suits and it seems that a navy suit and charcoal pinstriped suit would be good starter suits. Does this sound right? The second problem is that Tokyo is super hot and super humid during the summer. I'm a bit of a pansy when it comes to uncomfortable weather and I especially hate being sweaty. So I guess what I'm looking for is a decent suit (will two be enough?), good enough to pass in a law firm environment, that's cool and not too heavy (lighter material, different material blends?), and low cost (I'm a poor law school student). You guys seem pretty helpful and I wanted to get your opinions before I give up and go over to the Men's Warehouse. Thanks in advance EDIT: Oh yeah, ONE MORE THING. What's the most comfortable yet acceptable shoe you can wear with a suit in situations like these? Any suggestions here as well?
