Personally, I like to get my suits at Men's Wearhouse. Yeah, it's a little expensive, but they take good care of you, you can go back if you ever have a problem, and they guarantee that you'll like the way you look.

(Sorry, sorry, I couldn't resist.)

Now, for an office suite, I personally prefer OpenOffice (http://www.openoffice.org) it's very close to being at version 1.0, and it's been 99.9% stable for me.

(HINT: Download the installer, unpack it, and - as root -run the setup with the "-net" option, then throw it somewhere like /opt/OpenOffice. This will put the main files there. Then, as your username, run the setup program again, and this will throw about 2 MB of files under your home directory. You can run the setup as any number of users you want, and it will work.)

I will also recommend OpenOffice. I personally think it is the best one out there for Linux. Others I know like Koffice.

Open Office 641D is fine, especially if you have a lot fo MS Office data to deal with.

it doesn officially build as part of the portage system IIRC - but I did mine the old fashoined way (built it manually from the original source).

StarOffice 6.o works great.
