I would prefer, if you wish to discuss the merits and problems of the straight cut suit, you would create your own thread on a suitable forum such as Menno Culture...
Alright here it is. (if this has been discussed before, we can merge this with that thread)
I can't recall reading about the plain suit anywhere in Scripture. maybe someone could direct me to the passage(s)?
What is the value of the plain/straight cut suit? Why not use one off the rack, or better yet, not wear one at all?
Since so much emphasis seems to be placed on this article of clothing in some circles, even to the point of banning people from communion and church membership, there should be some really, really good reasoning behind this.
If it costs more to alter a suit once purchased, or even to have a suit custom sewn, doesn't simple stewardship come into play here?
