    The correct response would have been:

    "Bitch, don't get smart with. I'm of Senior Member on StyFo. 100+ post count." Followed by slap to face.

    I think it had some blue and white striped lining, but to be honest I don't remember 100%.

    Very disappointing, as you say. As dreamspace says, it becomes a self-reinforcing vicious circle.

    Your sales rep doesn't have a very firm grasp on fashion then. Peak and shawl lapels are way on the rise.

    Ironically, I just bought a midnight blue shawl collar tux at Macy's for under $200. Fit is great off the rack. Needed something fancy and fun for NYE. Quality is meh, but for that price, no fucks given.

    This is why you shouldn't take advice from mens warehouse or brooks brothers.

    hahaha!
    ...agreed. IMO, unless you have a specific question, sales associates are utterly useless. Generally, they either have a hidden agenda or they just don't care.
