    Just out of curiosity, how many of y'all own more than one solid Navy suit.

    I only have one solid navy now, but used to have 4 of them, 1 double breasted, 3 single breasted, two two button, one three button. Got rid of all but kept a two button. I have migrated towards patterned suits now, not so interested in solid colors. I keep only three solid color suits for interviews or for occasions that call for it, but rarely if ever wear them for normal work days.

    I only own one, but I only have 3 suits. =P

    Do you own more then one?

    I wouldn't mind getting another navy suit, but not another solid, maybe if it had a pink pinstripe. If I were rich I might consider getting a db navy though.

    Two DB, one SB 3-piece (though this one is herringbone), one SB linen, one SB fresco, one SB flannel. Plus a lighter than navy sharkskin and a navy with a faint royal nailhead.

    I only have one navy suit, 2B plain worsted; however, I prefer grey and charcoal suits.

    One navy with a faint pinstripe due to be replaced by a solid navy in a very light twill. One solid navy linen/cotton. Both 3 button.

    I have one, a 3/2 Pressidential, and am toying with a BB GF two-button that's in play on the secondary market--if I can get it for the right price. Besides being a different cut, my logic is that a backup on staple items is a good idea (pens explode in pockets, food gets spilled) if it can be accomplished for a reasonable price. A third would be difficult to justify.

    One plain navy lightweight SB, 3-button.

    One plain navy SB, 3 roll 2.

    One plain navy DB, 2 show 3.

    Two navy DB chalkstripe.

    And a not quite dark enough to be navy plain blue linen SB summer number.

    Planning my next 3-4 orders, at least one is plain navy.

    There's a reason expensive PR people make politicians and CEOs wear plain navy suits: they look good.

    Chalkstripe shouldn't count. But that plain navy suits look good is dead on.
