OK, I know black suits (I'm not including tuxedos) are frowned upon outside of funerals, and especially during the day. But are funerals the ONLY occasion to wear them? Do any of you ever busy one out for happier occasions?

You could get away with it if you're going clubbing...

I know. I'm surprised this question doesn't come up more often.

Depends on the fabric. Many people call charcoal or midnight blue suits black.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
