Marshall learns it's because she previously had a bad experience with a man who worked on Wall Street, so now she immediately is turned off by anyone wearing a suit.

this episode of how i met your mother is special as it makes how i met your mother a 100 episode old. as Ted becomes one more step closer to meeting the mother. while barney faces a strong inner conflict as to whether suit down or to lose sleeping with as he says a "10". i loved this episode as it was practically a Broadway show. the title girls vs suits is apropos as barney thinks of suits as his life partners and friends while he considers women on the opposite side as objects, barney as always has been apart from the gang as a single ready to mingle guy but in season 5 he finally kicks of his dating life but till girls vs suits he breaks up with robin his girlfriend . this i suppose makes him realize that women in his life are as he says 'i got them coming and going, what up'. therefore he decides which is more important to him suits or women
