    It takes a lot of guts to wear that to a board meeting.

    thanks I defintely wont wear this to any serious client meetings or anything. Not sure how it will play out as a summer suit because the material seems to be a thicker wool

    I would not, it isn't my style. To each their own.

    Absolutely! I would stick to a white or blue shirt and solid tie, though.

    So is my office yet for a lark I wore my tweed suit one Friday. It's a rather colourful tweed and surprisingly the only person who said anything at all was the receptionist who kindly shared with me the fact that she hated it.

    Not that I'd take any real notice of a 19 year old girl anymore.

    19-year-old girls are morons. They don't know shit.

    20-year-olds however; now that's maturity.

    But seriously, you work in finance and have to ask this question? We're in an industry where wearing a pink shirt is considered 'out-there'.

    Along the same lines - I'm digging this Canali and it's on sale. I think I could pull this off at work. Is this OK for weddings, etc? Where is this suit appropriate?

    Any warm weather environment where a suit is appropriate.
