that the likes of accountants and estate agents wore anoraks for work!
Not got one myself. But owning a truly decent hat goes a long way, weather protection all by itself.
I just have three suits though. But I must declare that they are 'proper' suits, as in three piece ones. Anything else wouldn't feel right. Not wearing a waistcoat would make me feel like a chav having his day in court. or even a footballer (shudders).
(When I used to work in the same place as alan14, my idea of a dress down day was to wear a cardigan)
I don't have any suits. The last one I bought was for my wedding in 1972, which was given to the charity shop when I couldn't get into it any more. I do have a couple of Blazers for Weddings and Funerals but apart from that I do casual. I've only worn a tie twice in the past eight years both times for funerals.
I can honestly say that when I got rid of my service greatcoat in 2005, having been issued with it in 1956, it still fitted, though to be fair I would have to admit that it was a bit snug under the arms.
I have 3 suits. My wedding suit, that cost a small fortune and has only been worn once. I doubt it will fit now. My going to weddings / baptisms / job interviews suit, very smart with a cut that will never be out of fashion (hopefully) so can be worn for many years My funeral suit, bought from Primark for £20 on the day before my Mother's funeral, now been worn 4 times in the last 2 years.
I have one anorak / kagool, but I really don't like to wear it because it's not in any way breathable, so I sweat like a pig in it. One chap at my gym wears one when exercising, kind of like a portable sauna, but he leaves a trail wherever he goes.
Instead of an anorak I have a NATO forces overcoat that's been re-dyed black, totally waterproof and windproof, and very comfortable, amazing value at £20 from an army surplus shop in Manchester...
