How I Met Your Mother season 7In honour of International Suit Day on October 13, The GATE and 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment are celebrating in style by honouring one of television’s great men of style: How I Met Your Mother‘s Barney Stinson, played by the great Neil Patrick Harris.

As Barney’s favorite holiday, International Suit Day is clearly the right day to celebrate How I Met Your Mother: The Complete Season 7, which arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on October 2.

Read Barney’s Guide to Suits below, and then enter our giveaway for a chance to win one of three copies of How I Met Your Mother: The Complete Season 7 on DVD, including a Ducky tie!

Barney’s Guide to Suits!

The Gray Suite

The Gray Suite: In a lighter shade or even in more of a charcoal, think of it as the anchor of your suiting up wardrobe.

The Navy Suit

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 Black Suit

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 Pinstripe Suit

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.

Barney also suggests the following to capitalize on all that ISUD has to offer:

  • 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? Now… suit up! It’s gonna be legendary!
