The Many Suits of Barney Stinson

How I Met Your Mother‘s seventh season is out on DVD and Blu-ray this month, which happens to be perfect timing since Barney Stinson’s favorite day of the year, International Suit Up Day (ISUD), is on October 13th! We all know that Barney is nothing without his suit, so let’s have a look at some of his most striking suits, and a few tips on how you can celebrate ISUD in the awesomest way!

The Gray Suit


“In a lighter shade or even in more of a charcoal, think of it as the anchor of your suiting up wardrobe.”

 The Black Suit

“A staple for every man’s suit collection, to be sure — just make sure it’s slim fitted and stylish. No one wants to look like a funeral director at cocktail hour.”

 The Navy Suit

“Luckily, navy isn’t the snooze it used to be. Now a classic choice, it travels seamlessly from the boardroom to a legendary evening out.”

 The Pinstripe Suit

“Get a little adventurous and pair your pinstripes with a solid dress shirt. In Navy, black or gray, pinstripes will always be classic and demonstrate your confidence.”

And here’s some advice from Barney Stinson himself to help you make the most of ISUD:

  • Wear a suit to university
  • Wear a suit to work
  • Wear a suit in the hospital
  • Wear a suit to school
  • Buy a suit
  • Party in a suit
  • Play laser tag in a suit

Ready for ISUD? Now … SUIT UP! It’s gonna be LEGENDARY!
