With or without pinstripes, which one of those categories do you fit into?
I think pinstripe are far from being special. It is extremely common like plain suits.
I may even push the proposition that chalkstripe is a bold is utter nonsense. I see people from apprentice to business typhoon wearing such suit when the occasion requires ordinary business dress, that is especially true in UK and its previous colonies.
Me? I am just a cleaner.
The mention of "power suits" puts me in mind of 80s yuppies or powered exoskeletons or gundam type things.
Instead of 2 $500 and a 1k suit
why not 2 $1k suits?
charcoal and navy should be enough
I'd go 2 suit supply suits for $1500 (thats including alterations)
Save the 500 for 2 nice pair of shoes you can rotate
I don't think that I'd spend $1,000+ on a SuitSupply suit, but to each his own.
IMO, he's probably be better off with two suits for $400-$600 each (plus alterations). You can find decent suits at that price, and it will give him a chance to learn more and figure out how his suits should fit. If he rushes to buy 4 suits, he may make a misguided decision and end up regretting it.
The thread's called first power suit, I told him what I think of when I hear "power suit". And yeah, 80's stock broker comes to mind every time.
