So why not a OneSuit??? If you're not in the odd jacket/trou frequently, I really can't see the point of the OneTrou.

I am contemplating the TwoShoes, identical save that one is in black and one is in brown. Perhaps I will vary the leather/color even further, but I already have in mind the basic stylings that I strongly prefer.

I suspect because this would be way too boring given how strongly the suit defines the whole look.

We're talking about Foo here. Most SFers would not be happy with a OneShoe or a OneTrou for your stated, above reason. But if you're Foo, why not get a multiple versions of a beautifully tailored suit in a magnificent fabric so you always look great, and feel great, with no guess work?

It's difficult to match suits to metallic hands.

I'm a proponent of the 'One' concept. I like it, It helps to me to incorporate minimalism into my wardrobe.

You will not achieve maximum minimal until you have embraced the 'None' concept. ala The NonePant.

Looking forward to it in WAYWN.

And Jeff Goldblum in The Fly. It would certainly free up thinking time.

This is like promoting masturbation over monogamy.

Your genovese post at what was the beginning of my first semester of law school prompted my two roommates and I to spend 5 hours on a Sunday cooking a genovese recipe for a potluck we hosted. It was the most delicious thing we have ever made. I hope this enspires you to update TitC.

Minimalism is one way to look at it. I've started implementing the "One" concept to make sure that I have my wardrobe fundamentals available at all times. I love grey suits, bengal stripe shirts, grey pants, navy blazer, brown cap toe shoes etc. Now, instead of having to restrict wearing those items to once a week or once every two weeks (lest I wear them out or have to go to the dry cleaners 2x/week), I have multiples so I can wear them as much as I want. I still like to have some more idiosyncratic stuff in my wardrobe (glen plaid trousers, tan shoes, loud sportcoat, etc) that I might be in the mood to wear from time to time, but they are extraneous to my core wardrobe and I'm not forced to include them in my rotation.

What a shame. I was going to guess 13 oz H Lesser in light grey great body and may be tolerably hot in the summer.

If two season:
Winter - harrisons/smiths woolen flannel in light grey

Summer - H Lesser tropical in light grey.
