    In a related note, :fu: :fu: :fu: :fu: for getting such a deal. And well done for completely exploiting the system with your fraternity brothers. There's a TFM in there somewhere. :foo:

    like the others said, sales experience is important. if you're going part-time and have a flexible schedule (i.e. you can work evenings, weekends and holidays), i would bet that just being good-looking and personable can get you a job in a place like RL or NM.

    Hahaah actually thats my shirt/ jacket size well err 36/38. In all honesty though it wasnt that great for suits/shirts I mean i got one brown suit and a dinner jacket, and like only one dress shirt. What it was really good for was the ties which were 10 bucks each after discount and the odd stuff like belts, wallets, passport holders, and bags. They did have those velvet smoking jackets which in hindsight i should have bought.

    oh and shoes of course, but there was one design, for calf leather in black and brown, the aligator leather ones of course, and some really really uncomfortable snow shoes.

    OWNAGE!!!!!!

    It's a shame you would have to actually post the receipt to prove this to strangers. I remember a few weeks ago I posted about getting a $4K LP winter coat for 90% off and people got all twisted over it.

    Spoo - what say ye??

    dont get me wrong its a great suit, fully canvassed, and to the untrained eye it looks exactly the same. But i went in there the other week and ordered one and while trying on their RTW for sizing, you can really feel the difference, in fabric and just the feel of the coat.
