I'm getting married, as I stated before. Good old Dad needs a black suit. Dad also doesn't know much about suits, though he has a lot. (In his defense, in his younger days he may have known a thing or two, but apparently has forgotten them -- yes, he is one of the majority of men who think HB is the best suit out there, along with at least 30 guys at Century 21 the other day, two of whom literally flipped out when they saw the rack of Bosses). Well, I found the following at Bloomies, a 48 regular -- just his size: Black, two button, year round weight Canali Exclusive Collection. Retail: 1850; sale price: $399.... (It was apparently left in the back of Bloomies for a year and never got put out). I got 15% off of that, plus another 15% for opening a Bloomies card. Total Price: $290..... I told dad -- a broad shouldered guy who Canali will fit perfectly -- and he said, "Those Italian suits are cut for slim guys." Poor, Dad. I hope he appreciates the beautiful piece of clothing I bought for him to wear in my wedding. He does deserve it, despite his ignorance.
