    I'm sure she is a woman of taste, intelligence, and distinction. But she's dead wrong here. No wider than this. Ever.

    Yea, I'm not so sure what his "default" is anymore. But we do use the same guy.

    I only own suits, no odd jackets or trousers. If the fabric is casual enough (tweed, seersucker, etc) it counters the formality.

    This is a really nice paisley but I think the odd vest is too dark and fails to tie everything together. I have one odd vest and also struggle with finding a good way to wear it.

    In my opinion there's no extra effort in wearing a suit vs. proper trousers, a sport coat, and tie. Suits look better to me than any sport coat combination out there. Given the expense of a suit is roughly the same as a sportcoat/trouser combination, and there's no extra effort involved (actually less effort) and to me it looks better a suit is a no-brainer. In this day and age most people don't even see the relative formality of a sport coat vs. suit and they just lump it all into "jacket and tie" so I think the formality measure doesn't hold much water in your argument. Unless of course you're wearing jeans with a sport coat.

    It's true - people often say 'nice suit' when I'm wearing an odd jacket and tie...

    Oh, come, come, Ping. I suspect many of the young ladies in your class were making puppy-dog eyes at you the whole time. You are just too modest to notice.
