Find a 24 hour Wal-Mart and buy a presentable shirt (and dress slacks if you weren’t traveling in them). Your hotel will have enough toiletries to tide you over unless you’re picky - even if you are, Walmart will have stuff to get you through tomorrow.

OP you can go to a store and buy dress clothes and expense them to Delta. Happened to me a year back and they reimbursed me and I expensed like $300 of stuff. Also, AC1, your comment makes me want to punch myself in the face

I realize that wasn’t help. You likely can expense but I would see what the hotel has... depending what you need maybe just use it to buy new stuff you wanted any way

Also, how many miles should I demand for this mishap?

@OP
I think it'll depend on how long you are without your suitcase too

Also, depending on your status, Delta may also reimburse you

As an almost exclusive United flier and travel junkie/aviation geek, I think I can say without much bias that Delta has great customer service from what I've seen and tries do what's right

OP - you need to get your priorities straight. The real question in this situation is: “points?”

EY1 I think know you, how is it going buddy lol are u at KPMG now?

OP- once delta was unable to pull my checked bag after a cancelled flight for many hours (due to the entire airport basically shutting down) so I was to stay the night and fly out the next morning. They assured me my bag would make it to my final destination with me, however when I explained I would be going straight from the plane to the office, they told me to go buy all new clothes/toiletries, keep the recipes, and they would reimburse me. Definitely worth a try!

Any decent corporate card should have lost baggage insurance as long as it takes more than a certain number of hours for them to deliver your bag.

Even if not reimbursed, can’t we all use another white shirt and pair of black pants?
Wife had suitcase delayed two days with KLM.
Bought two day essentials, but also some extras like jelly beans and bottled water at Target or someplace. Was submitted with the expectation to just get the clothes and toiletries back but all the treats were reimbursed too.
All that said - I never, ever check at least one clean shirt, pants and underwear
