Default How often do you buy a new suit?

This is probably for man's post, but ladies are free to post. I see directors sometimes wear suits so they probably buying a new suit more often than associates. However if you just use suit for interview or formal business events, how often do you buy a new suit?

I have not bought a new suit since 2013 and use it probably twice a year on average.

For the options, it's always >= lower bound and < upper bound on each option.

It's been almost 10 years since I bought my last suit. I don't get the opportunity to wear suits often

I usually buy 3 a year, all at once. It is a hobby of mine and I wear them on a daily basis. I currently own 12.

I bought 2 suits this year (navy and a charcoal) First time buying one in 7 years. felt nice going out with a fresh suit that was recently tailored.

unless I see some large weight changes, I dont expect to buy another suit for at least 5 years.
