I'll start. Never wear them, own three. I blame styleforum for this.

I wear a suit six days a week.

I own 14 suits. 2 are summer suits that are too light for winter wear. I rotate through them very regularly, although not on a schedule.

This does not include my tuxedo or my scuba suit.

I don't actually own a scuba suit.

Twice a week. Own more than allowed by Style Forum.

Rarely. Once a year may be. I have 7 suits sitting in the closet. What a waste.

5 suits, 5 days a week. This is the least ridiculous I've ever felt answering a question like this in MC!

7 suits. Just took a job at a 'business casual' firm and will only rarely have any opportunity to wear them now.

5 suits (one is fashion-forward and not suited to work)

Tend to wear suits Mon-Thurs, on Fri a sports jacket or sweater combo - although if I am a halfday during the week then will not wear a suit on that day but wear on Fri.

2-3 suits, probably get worn about 10-15 times a year. I try to wear them as seperates occasionally just to get some usage out of them

I own 9 suits. I wear a suit 3-4 times a month, except during the warmer summer months when it drops to 1-2 times a month. Apparently I need to invest in some lighter weight or partially / unlined suits.

Only occasionally, so I only have one.

I have three dinner suits and two odd dinner jackets though. Thinking I might cut this number down a little.

11 suits, I don't were any of them anymore because of a change in job. I've also gained 25lbs recently (on purpose) so the BS may see a number of RLBL in 38R show up soon...

I own five suits. I haven't worn them recently because it's been so hot. Now when I put them on I feel odd because it has been so long since I've worn a jacket (probably since April). I'm sure I will get past that small insecurity soon. I can, but don't always, wear them 7 days a week.

I wear suits every weekday all day, so I figure 7 or so is minimum. I have about 10. A few are heavier flannel for winter and one is unlined and thin for summer, and one is cord, which is not for work.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
