Surely you wear underpants?

Wash your asshole (along with the rest of your body), and wear underwear. Dude...come on. We're too old for this problem. If you have 6 suits, then you can get through the week without having to wear one suit twice in the week. Maybe stick with solid variations of grey and blue. Change your underwear daily.

I walk and take subways to work and also walk around my neighborhood and work neighborhood. The subway is air-conditioned, but the platform is not. Even in a summer suit it can get sweaty - this is New York City. Not 100F but 85-95F.  Or check this guy out around 1:45 in http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ugwhwe2Stfk  Northern Italian style, soaked under the arms of his shirt, which is probably going to affect his suit.

 

This summer I went to a funeral and it was in the high 80s and sunny.  Wore a navy linen suit. Sweated into the suit jacket. 

 

The good news is linen, cotton and other summer suits tend to be cheaper than the cashmere's and stuff in the winter. If you are in situations similar to how you describe or like in tropical areas where you can't escape being really sweaty, buy a rotation of summer stuff that will be dry cleaned more frequently and chalk it up to the cost of living :)

A good-quality suit wears more like outerwear than underwear.
Brush it after each use. Google "kent clothes brush."
Change your boxers every day. Also, wash your ass if it gets nasty. teacha.gif

 

Sounds about right..especially the part where you should wash your a**

I love the phrase in the description "you may or may not want to have it dry cleaned" baldy[1].gif Reading the rest of the description, I wouldn't want to touch it, as in have contact with my skin, or even be in my apartment unless soaked in rubbing alcohol & I love Zegna. And I thought this thread was dead and done,clearly we have new depths to reach. biggrin.gif

How does one manage to bang his secretary daily whilst wearing his suit, without the stench of her ill-kempt gina building up in the groin area over time?

She's a great girl. OK more of a woman than a girl. She's a little overweight but, only if you look at her head on. If you look at from a profile and kind of squint, she's more than or at least average. She does have an SDT, so consider it as kind of an adventure. The goiter is covered by an Hermes scarf so that's not an issue. Oh and I'm not sure if it's her perfume or a natural essence, but I find putting a little bit of Vick's Vapor Rub under my nose when around her works perfectly. So you two kids have a good time and no need to thank me for setting you up.biggrin.gif

Not to mention her wonderful personality.

great metaphor GDot. 

 

As for logistics, I find I just have to spend a 5 minutes after each day to brush my suit and trousers and hang them immediately so it doesn't wrinkle. A little more maintence than jeans and t.

 

Plus dry clean once or twice a year, depending on your use.

Depending on the type of brush one uses I would imagine all but the toughest fabrics would get ruined by repeated [aggressive] brushing over time. No?

I have a garment brush but rarely use it on my suits. I'm just careful when I wear them.

brush like you comb your hair not like scrubbing the floor. I use kent brushes help to remove dust, dirt and stains that may ruin the suit if untouched for too long. Prevents moths and bugs too as they are drawn to food crumbs.
