I remember a 8mm Easter movie of me in about 1966 when I was almost 5 and I was wearing a suit , red tennis shoes, and a bow tie. I don't think I owned anything other than a sport coat which I bought for my sister's wedding in 1984. I bought my first suit in 1988 when I got my first professional job. I wore business casual with a tie and an occasional suit for about 4 years. However, I haven't had to wear a suit in the last 20 years as I work in a very casual environment. However, I have always enjoyed dressing up and have purchased 2 suits and about 5 sports jackets in the last 10 years and wear something nice 3-4 times a month. I bought my son his first suit when he was about 15 a few years ago. We live in New Mexico and it is rare to see someone with a tie let a lone a suit.
