My good friend Nick, a sophomore at Pomona, is no stranger to the term “dressing up.” He pulls out his three-piece pinstripe suit whenever he feels like it, whether it’s a special occasion or not. That’s something that I really respect about him: he always puts his best foot forward and projects his strength of character through clothing as sharp as he is.
The general argument against wearing suits is that they’re uncomfortable and stuffy. However, this only applies to poorly made or ill-fitting suits. Nick’s is neither of these; rather, it moves with him like an extension of his body as opposed to seeming like some rigid casing that restricts motion.
Nick’s taste in clothing is just one facet of his overall style, but it certainly is a strong indicator. The luxurious wool and clean tailoring are representative of a clear fact of Nick’s personality: he appreciates the finer things in life.
The suit iteslf has an amusing background story. Nick does a great job of picking up great numbers at thrift stores, this suit included. Very high quality construction, little sign of wear, and made in Hong Kong for some fellow named R. F. Miller back in ‘82. Whoever the man was, I’m sure he’d be glad to know that his suit fell into good hands. To be completely honest, I can’t think of anyone who could wear it better.
