You know the fit differences between many different models of many different manufacturers, even if you don't own them or never have tried them on.

I take issue with this one. For example, I'd heard quite alot about the fit of G&G shoes, however trying them on brought a whole new and different level to it that was qualitatively and quantitatively different. From that experience, while I've heard a lot about the fit of Vass shoes, I would not say that I have any idea as to what their actual fit is like.

Oops, meant to say suits. I definitely agree with shoes.

1. You are wearing a suit and someone compliments you with some variation of, "I like your blazer" and you respond with something like, "it's a suit, not a blazer."

2. You are wearing a sportcoat and someone compliments you saying, "Nice suit!" and you respond by saying, "It's a sportcoat."
I find this particularly funny as I've never run across anyone who doesn't know the difference.

I did once have someone compliment me on my 'dress' khaki's.

When you begin to understand Imelda Marcos, sympathize with, and possibly even envy her.

Never thought I'd get there.

I have met someone at Delos who used to make shoes for her in the seventies..

That was an interesting conversation.
