So, I'm a "cheap suit" kinda guy

So, I've been hemming and hawing about making reservations for Remy. A while back on the boards I remember seeing in a thread discussing dining attire a post to the effect of "why can't my husband wear jeans, his jeans are worth more than most ppls cheap suits I see".

Don't know why it bothered me so much, but it did. Now, I manage a lumber yard and do inventory and commodity purchasing for it. Not really a suit and tie type of job. I do have a suit jacket, worn about 5 times in the last 3 years that I purchased out of a Sears catalog (a retailer, don't know if y'all have them in the states) before going to see The Phantom of the Opera. About a 100$ jacket. The fit is not perfect, but pretty close and it's a standard black affair hanging in the closet in a garment bag. I have lots of dress slacks. I wear them daily as I feel it's important to look professional in any work environment.

What I'm wondering is if I will stick out like a sore thumb in an environment where the "haves" like to stare and think about how much more money they have than the shabby "have nots".

Maybe I'm just being too self conscious about the whole thing, but I've seriously doubted dining at Remy or have considered spending money on a Tux rental when in my mind I have suitably dressy attire.

So, I guess the question is, are there any other "cheap suit" kinda guys that have dined there and had a good experience, or did you feel out of place. Maybe I should just do the Leonardo DiCaprio in Titanic thing and be the beggar at the feast.

*** side note *** This post has more to do with my own feelings than stereotyping the wealthy, please don't take offense.
