    Interesting discussion on number of suits. I have 6 nice suits, and am toying with the idea of a 7th for more variety. I find I enjoy wearing suits more and more (probably indicative of creeping middle age, at 38), since they're simple change of look with a different shirt, shoes, etc. I usually eschew a tie unless for more formal occasions. I'm in advertising so the sleek suit is reserved for certain client meetings or more visible events.

    Anyway, I have a heather grey, charcoal, classic navy, dark blue with pinstripes, black, and navy with a touch of mohair. Not really sure of the next step, because then one ventures into weird territory, with Prince of Wales patterns, brown (no!), maybe a fashionable tux.

    At the office, I'm more of a blazer and nice jeans guy as is tout le monde.

    I have one suit I got as a graduation gift with a note in the pocket that said "go get a job now".

    I have just one suit that I use for weddings, and it’s a cheap-ass Zara one. If I interviewed these days I think I wouldn’t even wear one, although I did in the past, years ago.

    I have a shitload of suits and only two of them are office/interview appropriate.

    This was posted on the Crockett and Jones thread, but for those who don't wander over there:

    I think I've found the chunky black derby that I've been missing.

    Interesting to see Crockett and Jones going in this direction, even for a capsule collection.

    Chinese, yeah. Italians aren't really known for their intrepid spamming and malware attacks.

    Lol. Macedonia is sorta a weird country to call out, but a disproportionate number of the fake news sites, for example, that were heavily promoted on Facebook, were of Macedonian origin.
