I realized today that I am bizarre. I would rather be in a suit and tie than in sweats and a t-shirt. Rather than changing out of my work clothes when I get home, I choose to remain in them and do my post work activities in them. Why?
I have recently been watching the television series: How I Met Your Mother and instantly felt like I could relate to Barney, a character on the show, because his motto always seems to be: “suit up” or “nothing suits me like a suit”. These two phrases have made Barney LEGENDARY in my book.
What is it about a guy who is dressed in a suit that makes you think, ‘What does he do for a living’? For all you know that person is a janitor who owns one really nice suit, and a few different ties to keep things interesting, but his attire makes you assume that he is wealthy–or well off. Is that why I love suits? I suppose. I think for me it is more the idea that I am standing out. Long gone are the days where men wore suits regularly to their jobs or out on the town. Perhaps this is my way of attempting to live in that era? Either way, I echo the words of Barney: Nothing suits me like a suit–so SUIT UP!
