I will use them at work
You would be fired if you worked for me.  
what's why I do not work at all
A temporary employee who changes suits, tie, braces, shirts, watches, shoes every days has many chances too be fired because of jealousy and fear of others (they think :"this guy is dressed like a chairman, if he works like he dresses, he will take my place in a few mounths")

I like the Faconnables Ernest But they are bold. They also work selling to men's stores because they expect flamboyance. Kalra: you'd really fire someone for wearing a bold chalk stripe?

No, I was just kidding, but I might tell them not to wear it.

(esquire. @ 21 July 2004, 07:58) On that now locked thread, it mentioned that Ernest is unemployed. Even if they are good prices, the question is should he buy them if he's not currently employed and has no need to wear a suit. Ernest, what is your profession and how old are you are? The answer to this will determine whether or not you should have bought these suits.
I said I was unemployed because I have nothing to hide. Nevertheless,  I think what I do with MY money is not your business and I do not understand why your are only talking about this and not about my suits... Perhaps jealousy to see someone who has enough money to buy what he likes without working because of the french system while you can not because of stinginess, poor income or fear about future? Can I remind you that this forum is talking about clothes, style and NOT about financial situation or subjacent moral you are talking about (what to buy if you do not work). I was working in a derivative  back-office (suit EVERY days) and I am 30 year old. What is your conclusion? Please check my last  suit by Lanvin I bought today and give me your opinion about fabrics (not about my style of life) :
Ernest, I did not know that you used to work in derivatives. I imagine that was quite good money and the reason you have money to burn right now. I also am ignorant about the French unemployment system. I was not out to critique your spending habits, but expressed merely my concern that you were getting in a contest with others on this board (particularly with Kalra). I like the pinstripe one very much.

ernest, I like your choices very much, I have the less 'bold' of the Faconnable suits myself, and enjoy wearing it. I too have more suits than I need, as I am not required to wear one - but I do wear them, even if it may make some of my coworkers uncomfortable. I dress for my comfort and for me, suits are 'professional armor' as well as luxury clothing and remind me of why I go to work every day.

Not so much money but I have no rent, no food, no kid spendings... I received an assurance for unemployed from state during 3 years, around 64% of my last salary. Problem is = From 2 years, salaries decreased much in back-offices and if I worked I would earn very few more than what I received for sleeping home. I could even loose money by working if you add garment wear and less time in not searching bargain during sales.. So why working? I am not a slave who will work 8h per day for 1 500 euros. And you?

I think if you think better a suit is required nowhere because we could all wear jean's and sweaters. Even ministers and chairmen. Why would they do their job worst in jean's? If your coworker have no taste and do not want to looks serious at job this is their problem. Wear what you like. Job is some sort of fashion parade, it is the only interest to work with teasing coworkers....

I'm an attorney now.  I work like a semi-slave, but am compensated handsomely.  My fiance was unemployed for a time as well, however (laid off), so I know well that sometimes just taking the unemployment compensation is better than working (she did actually net more money by being unemployed for 4 months than she would have netted working).   It sounds like you are at least taken care of by the French system.  So, I apologize if I was under incorrect impressions.

I am really sorry to make such a stupid comment, but the title "I give you the price" is really getting to me. I keep thinking of salesmen in Hong Kong trying to sell me a camera, I even yelled it out (I give you the price) and my secratary walked in just now, so I thought I better tell you guys. (the reason for that is too much Blue Label, as a result of the Scotch thread..&#33
