    What do you call this type of suit?

    Discussion in 'Research' started by jazzabel, Jul 10, 2013.

    My wizard skills with internet searching have failed me. What do you call a shiny expensive suit like this

    What is the name for that material?

    I don't know about material, but I think they're called 'sharkskin' suits.

    [MENTION=52161]erebh[/MENTION]: thank you! yes, they are the expensive, wool kind. Ouch, polyester suit. Haven't seen one of those in ages :)

    [MENTION=53150]sanco[/MENTION]: that's a really cool expression, perfect for my purposes. Thank you :)

    [MENTION=3885]Wreybies[/MENTION]: thanks for confirming it. Sharkskin suit it is. It's more perfect than I even imagined, my character that wears it is quite a shark. I'm gonna have fun with this one :D

    Oi! Some of us eschew such stereotypes. I, for one, like to think we are more lizard-like. :p

    I really like the term sharkskin suit. I'm filing that away for future use. :)

    It's not fair to single out lawyers, Cogito. Sharkskin suits fit all types of crooks.
