Not That Kind of Browncoat

In other news, the alterations to my brown coat were in, so I picked it up at lunchtime. While there, I received several very complimentary remarks from one of the sales guys about my "retro look," particularly my tie, which amused me. This tie was bought at either J.C. Penney or T.J. Maxx, I forget which, for all of $14, sometime in the mid-1990s. It's a nice tie, but nothing all that special!

In re: the earlier post about the coat, I did try to cash in on the $199 sale, but apparently in their suits I'm a 54 long, instead of a 52 long (which I seem to be in their overcoats, go fig). Their sale only applied to regular stock rather than upsize specials, so to get the suit I wanted I'd have to buy it all as separates, which would run me $310, kinda negating the benefit of the sale.

Oh well! There'll be other suits. :)
