I really wasn't going to purchase a TF suit... but just was pointing out that this seems like the only option.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
But my job requires that I dress up at least 3 to 4 times a week and I have been getting by with just 3 suits. Seems like Groundhog Day but I need to add more menswear.
My plan now is to visit the Paul Stuart store and go try some on and come back with some pictures.
...and thx for the congratulatory words.
Since this is the GNAT, I'll offer some of my own based on this comment, which I understand to be mostly tongue in cheek, or at the very least a reflection of The Noodle's forum persona and not necessarily something you genuinely believe.
Life is about making choices. Succeeding in life is generally about making good choices and responsible choices. I'd like to drive an Icon FJ45 and have my wife drive the vintage Porsche of her dreams. Instead, I drive a used Prius and she a used minivan. That way we are also able to feed the children we have, and clothe and shelter them.
It is possible to raise a child, boy or girl, in a carpeted domicile. It's been done before. It's also possible to look good in Hickey Freeman or thrifted Polo.
The idea that purchasing several Tom Ford suits is anybody's only option is absurd, even in this thread.
And although I don't have enough experience dressing in suit and tie on a daily basis, it seems to me that wearing a suit once a week is not likely to wear it out in a too short time span.
