I am not entirely sure of wearing a suit (the “real” kind, not the sci-fi suits) is geeky or what, but I reckon today’s quirky holiday is still worth a mention. Yup, if you haven’t heard yet, today is International Suit Up Day. I actually found out about it on Facebook, as several friends are so into it. The chances are that you have at least one friend that has posted about it as well.
So what’s up with this holiday? If you have been watching the series How I Met Your Mother, then you will be familiar with the character Barney Stinson, who “loves wearing suits more than he loves seducing women.” That should tell you something, shouldn’t it?
Now if you’re not a How I Met Your Mother fan – like yours truly (I haven’t had the chance to see it) – then you might just want to skip wearing a suit today. Otherwise, check out this video – Barney Stinson – Nothing Suits Me Like A Suit.
I have to admit, that was quirky enough to make me want to start watching the show. It’s not enough to convince me to do any of the things that one is supposed to do on this day though:
If anything, this “holiday” is one heck of an advertising idea. Didn’t get enough warning to prepare your suit for today? You have another year to prepare for it – and a slew of other awesome holidays to come, for sure.
