How often should I get a new suit?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just purchased a new Midnight navy suit off the clearance rack at Nordstrom rack. I have a dark grey Meeting Street suit with discrete lavender strips that I have had for about 17 years. My parents bought it for me at Belks after I left college. It fits, but the pants do have pleats. No one has said anything about it or really cares.

I purchase a tan linen suit about 2 years ago, but I am not sure the rules on when I should wear it. I always wanted one because of the Roger Moore James Bond movies. I am pretty limited to when I should wear it, No evening events summer/spring only and no business meetings correct?

I also have a navy Ralph Polo match jacket and pants, not really a suit.

Should donate the grey suit and get a new one?

It depends on how frequently you wear suits. If you don't often wear them, then why spend the money? You can use it on something that you'll actually enjoy more. If you only have 4 suits and one of them is 17 years old, then I'm guessing that you don't wear them much.

Like Vinny said, it would depend on how often you need to wear suits. If you rarely use it what's the point in getting a new one. You can probably live on one navy suit if you don't really wear one for work or other events.

Regarding the gray suit, I would hang on to it, unless something about the styling appears dated. There is nothing wrong with pleats.

 

A tan linen suit is best worn in warm weather (spring and summer) during the daytime. I probably wouldn't wear it to work, but it really depends on how formal your work environment is.
