In general, I am also rather sceptical of the sort of people who feel it necessary to project an image, however, the 'best' wearer of a suit that I've ever known was a chap at the Polytechnic in the 1970s. He had the air of an international diplomat in a black and white film, possibly an ambassador, and was always immaculately attired. He was completely efficient and effective at his job.As far as I am concerned the word "suit" is a term of abuse for the sort of people who wear them. Having said that I have worn suits on four occasions in the last 10 years, three weddings & a funeral. (doesn't sound quite right for a film title does it.)
It would be a very bad week where I had seven evening engagements and I do not allow more than two or three a week anyway, but in your hypothetical example you are probably correct, yes. Obviously not all bought at the same time. I buy two suits every three months so there is a ‘heirarchy’, I would expect 2 years, sometimes up to 3, before they are consigned to the charity shop.
The only decent school that I went to had a strange uniform policy. I remember my mother asking them about it, as it was the bane of her life, changing schools every year. The headmaster looked slightly taken aback by the question and answered with an evasive "Yeeess....", then went to try to find some information to give her. "If he wears a uniform, it needs to be a bit like this", he said, handing her a picture. Needless to say, nobody did wear such a thing. I suspect the idea was just to stop people turning up in Nazi regalia...(I suppose he had the same problem as schoolkids (and their parents) have on non-uniform days.)
I adore a man in a suit, absolutely love the clean cut, smart polished look.
The current grungy fashion of jeans ripped at the knee does nothing for me.
I do like a man who looks like he takes pride in his appearance, without being too vain about it.
Sounds likes a match with Hopesdad then
