A suit-wearing man's needs are simple. A navy blue worsted. A gray pick and pick. A gray flannel for fall and a chalk-striped fresco for spring. Throw in two pair of oxfords, a few solid neckties and enough light blue and white dress shirts to see him through the week.
In the photo, the late shipping magnate Aristotle Onassis illustrates simplicity with his gray flannel suit, white shirt and linen square, and a black (possibly dark blue) necktie that has some sheen to it.
