I thought it might be fun to recount your worst clothing accident or disaster, may it be stains or damage.I realize at the time,it's an incredibly horrible occurence.Maybe now you can look back at this event in an anecdotal manner.Here's mine.I had just worn my brand new Hickey Freeman suit the first time and went shopping in a home furnishings store.In the store's rug section,there were piles of handmade rugs.I brushed up against a pile when I felt a scrape and heard RIIIIP.Apparently,one of the razor sharp metal i.d. tags used on the corner of the rugs caught my trousers right below the pocket and put a 6" slash in the pant leg,exposing my flesh (.)and even lightly scratching my skin.The store owner was very shocked and apologetic and cut me a check for the full amount of the suit right there on the spot.In subsequent visits,I notice they had converted to plastic tags.The happy ending? I was able to use the jacket of the trashed suit anyhow,and with the reimbursement,I bought myself another suit.
