So, how many suits do you own? - Page 3

post #31 of 42
I only wear a suit about once every week and a half. On the other hand, when not wearing a suit, I nearly always wear a blazer. Thus, I have about 10 suits and about 10 blazers. Some of each are strictly for summer wear (light cotton/linen/silk and/or wool fabrics) or strictly for cold winter wear (heavy wool). Personally, if you wear suits 5 days a week and you live where there are actually 4 seasons of the year weatherwise, I don't see how you can have only 4 or 5 suits without wearing them out very quickly and also having to compromise on fabrics (i.e., all fabrics basically have to be a relatively lightweight year-round wool). As for shirts, I'm a little over the top, as I keep finding incredible bargains on EBay... -- again, though, many are now in garment bags as they are of fabric/color, etc. that is most suited for summertime. And, I've pulled out the heavier cotton and the wool/cashmere shirts to wear now that the temps are falling.

You people are obsessed. I have three suits - black, navy pinstripe, and heather grey - and about half a dozen sportsjackets. Only one, my brown twill Wrangler number, gets any wear at all. On the other hand, I have a couple of dozen pairs of sneakers, and my jeans collection usually sits at that number as well. And I have just under a dozen casual jackets.

I'd say that if you wear a suit everyday, it woudn't be unreasonable to have fourteen of them. Wear one every fortnight and you'll never wear your suits out.

15 suits, 5 sport jackets. I think I average 1-2 new suits a year.

75 pocket squares
I tip my (fedora) hat to you. I have almost that many but only add to The Hoard when they are reasonably priced. At the Neiman Marcus Last Call in Franklin Mills (Phila, PA), I once found 17 Turnbull & Asser silk pocket squares (originally $75 each) for $9 each, less 50%. Needless to say, I bought every single one. I gave the duplicates away to my sartorial minded friends and the rest were added to The Hoard. As they say, the thrill is in the hunt.
