When do you wear suits?

When do you wear suits?

I mean that in either sense: under what circumstances do you, the reader, wear suits, or under what circumstances do you think one should? And when you don't or think one shouldn't.

I'm interested in the variety of opinions here.

I where a suit whenever the occasion calls for a tie.  I own sport coats but haven’t worn one for a few years.  Age is part of the equation, for me at least.  I’m 62.

 

Cheers,

I'll always wear a suit to a wedding or formal charity event, assuming they are not black tie (in which case the tuxedo comes out), to a job interview or to a formal business meeting.

I'll sometimes wear a suit to the office when I don't have to (law firm, so even though it is business casual, having a suit on isn't extremely unusual), to a less formal cocktail party, to church, or to some networking happy hours. A blazer and greys works nicely for the latter three situations as well.

I don't recommend wearing a suit to a dive bar, most nightclubs, a barbeque or any event that is supposed to be casual. Absent exceptions for advanced players which are beyond the scope of my response, I also don't recommend wearing a suit if you are not wearing a tie.

Absolutely correct.

That's simply what the OP was asking, viz., "under what circumstances do you think one should?"

So please allow me to rephrase the question:  "When do you deem it appropriate?"

 

Cheers,

I wear them to work
I wear them to shirk
I wear them to school
I wear them in the pool
I wear them when I'm high
I wear them when it's dry
I wear them when it's light
I wear them when I shite
I wear them when it's dark
I wear them to the park
I wear them to court
I wear them for sport
I wear them in the club
I wear them in the pub
I wear them when I'm fat
I wear them with a hat
I wear them when I'm slim
I wear them to the gym
I wear them in the rain
I wear them on the train
I wear them in the car
I wear them in the bar
I wear them to bed
I'll wear one when I'm dead

Christmas Day every other year
Christmas Eve in years when I don't wear a suit on Christmas Day
Christmas parties
Easter when the weather is more like Christmas, Halloween and Thanksgiving
Engagement parties
Funerals and wakes
Job interviews
Memorial Services
New Years parties
Some Bar Mitzvahs, Bat Mitzvahs and confirmations
Some christenings
Some communions
Some special anniversary and birthday parties (such as Silver/25th Anniversary and Sweet 16)
Some Wedding Vow renewals
Weddings

That's all I can think of for now. If I can think of anything else, I'll edit this message.

It occurs to me that I was so vague that I became too specific.

The word 'suit' on its own calls to mind a business suit, but I meant everything from tuxedos to tweed hunting gear.

The answer is still the same, whenever it is appropriate to wear a variety of suit.
