    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.

    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.
