Have you ever slept in a suit?

No. I am very good at taking off suits even while blacked out drunk. Also, I always manage to take my contact lenses out before passing out. It's uncanny.

I used to sleep in suits on a regular basis. now I never fly a flight of more than maybe 3-4 hours in a suit - I change beforehand. I hate the idea of sleeping in a suit.

I also have this unique ability. I always manage to hang my clothes up on a hanger and I wake up in amazement.

+1. Back when I wore suits to work more often, and I had been out drinking in a smoking establishment, I remember even making sure to hang my suit near an open window. And then waking up from the floor the next day, wondering how it got there.

Yep. I was dead tired at a conference once and took a nap in a chair with my suit on.

Are you inferring that Sator doesn't wear Thom Browne?

From an episode of MI5/Spooks, right?

[email protected]#$ - just voted no and then reading here realized that planes and conferences count


I thought the question was meant more like actually going to bed with the suit on

At an airport, many times and on a train, a few times. In fact, a couple of sleeps on a train have lasted the entire trip (about 8 or so hours from Dandong to Beijing). It was a bitch of a ride.

These days I at least take off my jacket before I crash, but before, there were some incidents...
At least I'm talking cheap h&m poly stuff for the partying...
