1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Essentially the higher the super number the longer the suit takes the regain its shape and the less durable it is. Above super 130 and the suits are generally not practical if you only own two because they take too long to regain their shape and are not durable enough.

    This isn't always true though. My Suit Supply S140 suit has held up just fine. Weave probably plays into it as well.

    What you purchased seems like a good match.

    For reference for entry level finance I have:

    1 Charcoal Suit, 1 Charcoal w/ pinstripe (not recommended), 2 Navy.

    If you are in a job that involves you wearing a suit every day (ibanking) then you will need more then that. But you can also use your signing bonus to pay for them then ;).

    As for the suit, you don't need to spend 1000. Almost any decent suit will look good on you as long as the fabric and construction is OK, and most importantly it will fit you. You can spend some money on the accessories, socks, ties, tie bars, pocket squares etc.
