Suits always remind me of Umberto Eco's comments about cellphones (written a few years ago). He noted that having a cellphone ring when you're in a meeting or at the theatre does not show how important you are (unless you are a doctor); rather, it shows that you are at the beck and call of other people. The person with the real power is always "in a meeting."

By the same token, I maintain that if you have to dress up in a suit for your job, you're dancing to someone elses' tune, unless, of course, you like suits and find them comfortable.
