I don't really want more suits.
They strike me as stuffy, and even when taken to the full igent extreme, most everyone will assume you are going/coming from work or should be going to an interview, wedding or court.
Whereas the properly done odd jacket, trousers and tie outfit strikes me as the real thing to pull off.
Note: I am talking about a setting outside the traditional work setting, but even here given the days we live in, I have my doubts the suit is somehow above a well done odd jacket, trouser and tie outfit.
Is this my bias, feeling? But I think of all the 'fits' we tend to salivate over and they are usually non-suit outfits.
If you were going to a holiday party, wouldn't a well done odd jacket outfit seem better than a suit? Going to dinner? Going out on the town?
I think the lounge suit has, unfortunately, been cast to the dustbin of 9-5 office worker and is extremely difficult to pull off if you trying to not to convey these associations.
Aside from a navy and grey suit. i don't think I want more for play and leisure.
Again. I don't have a need for suits in an work environment and this is what I am asking: outside such an enviornment--and even here I doubt-- do you think the odd jacket combo is better?
