Saturday suit-wearing is overkill for washing the car or raking the yard but, like black tie, it rewards going out of one's way to find occasions for it. Weekend-appropriate suits can be as business-like as a glen check for lunch in the city with friends or something completely informal such as corduroy that can be worn with a rollneck sweater to a football game (American or otherwise). They tell the world that the wearer is not working, something that cannot be said for most other clothing.
