I’ve decided to buy a suit. Why? Well after renting a suit for a wedding earlier this year and now needing a suit for another wedding, I’ve concluded that it makes financial sense to buy a suit, as long as it’s casual enough to be used more than twice a year.
So, easy financial decision, just go buy a casual suit, right? Well, maybe financial sense doesn’t equate to emotional sense, because, in my whole life, I don’t remember buying anything being this difficult. Maybe it’s because deep down I don’t really want to own a suit, but I just can’t seem to find anything that makes me want to part with my money. If it was outdoor clothing or a travel item, one hour on the internet and whatever I needed would be on its way to me. But after visits to numerous shops and hours online, my head is spinning and I’m no closer to finding the suit I need. Every suit seems to be either for heavy tweed for old men, bland grey for office workers or designer skinny for teenage boys.
