Kate, Wife to DH and Mommy to a 5yo lovin' DS; three angels 4/08 9/08 3/10 in Heaven,
waitin' for my baby
Mara, mama to two boys born 05/2009 and 04/2011, after four miscarriages.
I must say, he wears a suit very well, cufflinks and all, and looks poised and comfortable in it. So often I go to weddings and most of the men look SO uncomfortable in their suits
2 pairs of slacks.
Multiple dress shirts and ties.
His work does not require suits. Just chinos and a polo.
See, I was in Ashland, where dressed up meant no tie-dye.
Dh has a very nice classic suit. Tons of slacks, tons of ties, tons of dress shirts. A few sports coats.
He works at the Honda factory and wears a uniform. Everyone wears a uniform at the Honda factory even the big executives so he'll never need his dress clothes but they are nice to have just in case.
ETA: DD has a suit too that she made for herself.
If it looks like I'm trying to pick a fight... I'm not, I'm rarely that obvious.

...not that I believe it fits him anymore.
I've never seen him wearing anything that could be construed as professional or formal wear. Not even to our wedding
Student mama to Lyra June ( 10.24.09) and Olive Isis (12.12.11)
His job involves working on cars so his job would never require he wear a suit.

He has at least two sports jackets. And we bought a suit with a vest in college, but I think it's way too big for him now. Actually, that might be the only actual dress suit we bought all together. His other nice outfits are dress pants, shirts, ties, and sports jackets which can all be mixed and matched.
Anyhow, his daily attire consists of a tshirt or polo and non-baggy jeans (slender, skinny, not stovepipe). In cooler weather, he adds a casual, longsleeve shirt (stays open). And he wears henleys underneath come winter.
He telecommutes. When he worked in an office, he had nice dress shirts (but almost all of them were in deep jewel tones) and black flat-front dockers.
One of these days I'm getting him a nice seersucker suit.
Chasing DS since April 2007 and pumping for DD March 2013.
Yep, he owns one nice suit.
...not that I believe it fits him anymore.
He also has a few sports coats, slacks, and a tie collection, but I think his suit might need a few pounds before it fits properly again. (and I would rather he wear a sports coat and tie than an ill fitting suit).
Mom to 10yo Autistic Wonder Boy and 6yo Inquisitive Fireball Girl . December birthdays.
Other than that no, no suits. He has shirts and ties, but he is a carpenter, so the occassional wedding is all he really dresses up for. We're pretty casual on dates and such....
for those of you that have a suit around for "weddings" PLEASE, PLEASE do NOT wear black to a Filipino wedding.. it is bad luck and seen as almost an insult if you do.
This is in response to several posts I read, not anyone in particular..
When I was growing up, in a blue collar family, everyone had one or two suits, they were usually reserved for weddings, funerals, and major holidays at church like easter and christmas.
Before my husband got this job and worked in the trucking industry, he had one cheapie suit. We had to scrounge to buy his first suit for this job and he still has it and sometimes will wear it!
If women want tailored clothes, buy handmade! My favorite dress came from Etsy and was made to my measurements.
