New Shirts


We went shirt-shopping this past weekend. It was a success: we came home with two business shirts for my husband - not a small feat considering how particular he is.


While Tim is in the changing room --


salesman: Here's another one. Do you think he'll like it?


me: No, he thinks those kind of shirts look like tea towels.


salesman: oh. 


Salesman walks off and then I notice, he's wearing that very shirt. 


Oops.

Oops, indeed! :)
I have heard from several people that they saw me on CHEK news, from the Tea Festival. I think that you and I should go halves on someone to help us with spur-of-the-moment responses. I could have done a lot better too!

Hee Hee. Men are so direct and say what they feel when it comes to fashion. Your man know what he likes and he has good taste.

I went shirt shopping as well this weekend and surprised the farmer with a new shirt for the wedding we were attending. He complained the minute he saw it and said it would be too short to tuck in. It was 2 inches longer so off he went looking much more in style. Have a good week Lorrie!

LOL! Poor salesman...he'll be looking for a new shirt. But what's wrong with a tea towel...LOL!

I think we've all had similar moments at some point or other!

so can I guess tattersall-patterned? Mine is similarly conservative about shirt patterns, but has decided he can go as far as that kind of plaid, as long as it's in neutrals. . . . cute story!
