Everyone suggested just printing onto labels, but I needed to be difficult right? Our return address, the way I just had to have it, is too big for most return address labels:
Then, he gets home and there's a box under his arm... a box of SUITS!!
To recap, here's the first suit:
Men's Warehouse), too dark in the shade, perfect in the sunlight. If you'll recall, I did not mind this suit, plus it feels great, it feels expensive and quality-made.......... It's just a little bit too dark. It was like dark chocolate and I was looking for milk chocolate. So then we stumbled across this on Men's Warehouse:
Only problem is, it's called "Taupe" which is definitely open to interpretation; everything from tan to brown to olive. But for the most part, we reasoned that Men's Warehouse pictures are pretty accurate. So he ordered the taupe suits as well.
Well, they came yesterday (like I said, Kyle didn't get home till 8:30, so there was no sunlight to be had) but since he was so keen on going to bed early after a very long day, I didn't bug him about taking pictures either. Plus, he was trying on suit jackets in his boxers... forgive me if I don't post pictures of that...
Needless to say, after comparing them side by side and not being able to really make up our minds, Kyle went the whole nine yards an put on a cream-colored button down shirt AND a tie and put each jacket on in turn. All of a sudden, the olive highlights in the taupe started shining through and were garishly obvious. The dark chocolate suit, once against his skin tone and a cream-colored shirt, all of a sudden looked perfect. PLUS he loved the feel of the first suit, he said it felt more expensive and high quality... I told you.
VERY LONG story short (if you're still reading, thanks) our choice became very clear. We both started nodding (and I might have gasped again) when the dark chocolate suit went on. So it's bye bye taupe, hello dark chocolate. In certain lights, it's still too dark, but in the majority of cases now, I'm very very happy with it.
Phew, so, after much agonizing, we have a suit, and it was the first one all along (ain't that always the way!)
Perhaps I will be able to get Kyle to play dress up for me again some time. Here's my last dilemma then: do I trust myself to hem the pants? or do we take the suits to Men's Warehouse and have them do it? I do have moderate sewing skills, not expert but not beginner. What say you??
Also I finished addressing envelopes!! I only have to apply our wax seal to the inner envelopes, stuff into outer envelopes and SEND!!!
Sorry I've been so lackluster at taking pictures lately, but things are happening a lot more quickly than I could have thought possible and it's hard to keep up! But that's a good thing right?
