Jack Herschlag, executive director of the National Association of Men's Sportswear Buyers, argues: "There's no question suit sales have gone down, but there's a basic attachment to the suit. The concept is a century and a half old, and it's held up well" (qtd. In Gottschalk 2003).

Then there are the dressy guys who like fashion, and there's a lot of fashion in men's suits and sportswear today.
