    My point was that he was questioning why I would wear such an expensive suit when I am just an accountant working at a think tank. I guess I can't live in a nice house and drive a nice car since I am just an accountant working at a think tank.

    Noodles, your mistake was to answer his question. I never answer questions like that because I expect a similar answer if I told someone the price of Carminas. I may answer the brand, depending who it is, but if asked regarding price, I'll typially say something along the lines of, "you know, I do not even remember" or "I'm not sure, I just remember I got a really good deal on them." I give the latter answer if I mentioned the brand name to avoid snooping on price.

    Indeed.

    I sometimes wonder if the Noodles worries about small problems because he doesn't have enough big problems.

    Cheers,

    It was definitely awesome and much appreciated. Also, I figured this gives all of you an incentive to be really awesome over the next year and maybe you'll have the chance to be featured on the No Man blog in holiday season 2015.

    It's really tacky to ask other people how much their stuff costs. It's even tackier to tell them they shouldn't be buying it because it's too expensive.

    Ugh...never again will I discuss cost of my suits/ties/shoes/shirts/etc.
    I should just say it was like a $100.

    It's a national chain of suit stores. They carry many decent brands at reasonable prices. Their Sartoria Formosa suits are an especially good deal at $100
