    Not entirely, but I think that I feel more comfortable going straight up suiting. Id keep a few FU pieces, a solid navy, maybe some other solids in the rotation, but maybe just on Fridays or something. I've been thinking about it lately and I think this is where a lot of my problems in "excess" lie. Am I crazy to abandon them?

    Not crazy at all...excellent idea...ill PM you my address for you to send all of your sportcoats and blazers to me. [​IMG]

    Ive thought along those lines before...but just couldnt do it. sportcoats are just too much fun ya know? Endless possibilities that can really liven up an outfit where a full suit in my opinion wouldnt. Not that a suit couldnt, but the mix of patterns and colors a sportcoat and trousers gives is the cats pajamas to me.

    Agreed, but see bolded part - I have too many endless possibilities, therefore creating havoc on the eyes sometimes. I think its time to try and pull in the reins a bit.

    40R? Us poor 40R poor students in professional programs have a rough life to lead! Haha.

    Seriously though, it sounds like a good idea if you have a few staples.

    A Tom Ford suit can look as pimped out as any sportcoat.

    If you're serious about this, restraint is something you have to find in yourself.

    Im not saying I want to change my image or instantly become CBD overnight. Im saying that I find myself making many mistakes when pairing fits with SC's, mostly too much color/pattern/boldness, therefore I think I should eliminate them from my diet until I feel ready for them again. Right now, looking back at my last few SC looks and suit looks, there is a clear difference in what I felt worked.

    Not a problem with the sport coats, it's the fun trousers.
