Thanks for the advice. I know what you mean, drizzt3117, about staple suits. One should relly be at the top of the list, but they're just not as much fun. There will be lot of client meetings, but our clients are primarily novelists, and primarily women, so I think that allows for a bit more personality in the suit itself (rather than just the shirt/tie/shoes). ROT, hadn't thought about a blazer, but will. Sometimes I think they age the wearer, but it's a good idea. As for freelance editors, I'll let you know. The few I'm aware of now all work in London (where I work now). And thanks.
