    Groundhog Day is here!
    @Murlsquirl - My apologies in advance! Don't take offence. I know I need to buy your suit but I would like to do my due diligence.

    I present to you 3 suits. You all know where I work. This may be my final Formosa suit. I can build staples with Suit Supply. I would wear Formosa suits only once a month or so. So here are my options. I ask for your Pros and Cons and let's settle this issue today!

    #1 - Sharkskin

    #2 - Grey Flannel (aka Murl's suit)

    #3 - PoW

    Why would you wear your Formosas only once a month? That's ridiculous. Once a week sounds more like it. Buy them all, but the grey flannel first, then the navy Birdseye, then grey sharkskin and then the PoW, because it is a bit on the flashy side.

    I had to google that one. Not my taste, but impressive stats at that price point.

    What was the "old" douchebag car?

    I don't consider Tesla a d-bag car. If anything, I find it much less d-bag than the look of hybrid cars like the Prius. Actually, I guess d-bag is not the correct term for a Prius - whatever is the complete opposite end of the spectrum but not in a good way.

    Grey sharkskin is a classic American staple, isn't it?

    Noodles, the flannel or shark skin will be easiest to wear fairly often.

    It is! But you'll have to make the choice if you want something you can wear almost daily, or something you look awesome in every other week. Also, both the other suits are, in fact, awesome.

    Noodles, you buy that PoW and then you'll be complaining here again how it doesn't suit your complexion....

    Noodles, your ADD/ADHD is like light years worse than mine.

    The other formosa's aren't going anywhere. A 3 season flannel is awesome. Get that, especially because the price is right. Then save up and get another one in the spring.

    This is not complicated. Stop trying to make it as such.

    I am wearing my 38R Zegna (2 left) suits to death! I am not looking for something that I can wear weekly. I am looking for my last Formosa suit!
