to answer the question again,

because I don't need to feel like I look important, I could care less.

it isn't going to make the quality of my life any better if i wear one

suits are not necessary for everyday life

suits are uncomfortable

Suits don't make men look more important and authorative, it makes important and authorative men look more important and authorative but it does nothing for unimportant men. It's like a flavour enhancer.

^I agree. I don't like wearing any kind of suit if I don't need to. Just slacks and a button down shirt and some loafers. Suits do nothing for working people like me.

For a student it doesn't make sense. Students should dress for comfort. They sit all day.

I wouldn't knock a well cut quality suit.

How many guys walk around with big beer guts spilling out? A lot. A well cut suit can conceal a lot of that fat.

I think most people would respect a healthier looking man more over a fat one.

And that (among other things) is whats wrong with society today. We would rather conceal our fat and imperfections than get off our collective butts and do something about it (ie exercise)

Well, to put it in a different way, a suit is an equalizer, a leveler, a device of egalitarianism. Wearing a suit is pretty darned easy. You don't have to be smart, rich, powerful, or athletic...but it gives you some of the characteristics of all of those.

I never lived in Japan but was thinking the same things. I lived and worked at Grand Canyon for two years. Saw hundreds of Japanese visitors every day. They dressed casual but very nice and only saw a few suits...on older men.
