I just thought I...
"Can I help you?" is the stupidest thing a salesperson can say to a customer!! It's totally ineffective since it defines the salesperson as some one who is a salesperson. The salesperson should avoid that classification with a "non-sales" comment like "nice shoes", or something weather (non sales) related. This puts the salesperson and customer on a different relationship level. There is a huge barrier a customer puts up when he enters a store. People do not like...
Lel: Double-breasted jackets can have four to six buttons with one or two "to button". They are often identified by a two-number designation such as 4/2, 4/1 or 6/2. Translated, the first number gives the total number of front buttons and the second is the number of functioning buttonholes. It doesn't always mean that all the buttons have to be fastened. Often only the middle or upper button is secured on a 4/2 or 6/2, but the Duke of Kent started buttoning his...

Milhouse: Depends on what you want to emphasize (your top or your bottom half). If you have small shoulders and heavy hips go for the lighter color sport jacket. If you want to look shorter go with a high contrast between the jacket and trousers. Want to look taller go with less contrast. Dark and dull colors recede thus making you look thinner, and smaller. Light and bright colors project, which tend to bulk you up and make you look larger. More on How...
Confucius: Your host made a slight error! Cocktail and After 6 PM (not 5) is the same (also Informal): DAY or EVENING INFORMAL (Don't think casual!) also COCKTAIL, or BUSINESS ATTIRE: This requires a business suit, necktie, lace-up shoes, and for evening occasions a non-button-down collar dress shirt. Make certain that the person sending out the invitations really means informal and not casual since this is a common misconception! More on Cracking the Dress...
