I’ll admit, I suffer from the following:
1) Eclectic taste
2) Expensive taste
But I am ASTOUNDED at how difficult it is to find a MOCHA (not dark chocolate, not olive, not piss yellow tan) a creamy mocha brown suit for my guy. We are ready to throw down some skrill for this thing, he needs a hot suit and a brown suit will be versatile in the future so this ain’t men’s wearhouse/Selix that we are talking.
We went almost everywhere in San Francisco yesterday, and though we found many lovely suits…. it went something like this: "Hi, he’s getting married and we are looking for a cocoa or mocha brown suit" and from there it would begin where they would bring out BLACK suits that they called ‘Brown’. Or if we were in a ‘couture italian designer shop’ they would tell me what THEY THOUGHT HE SHOULD WEAR and bring out gray’s or wheaty tans with purple….. great looking stuff, but so NOT the vision.
The most frustrating part is that though my guy loves to shop, he’s HATING this experience….he’s got about 10-15lbs to lose and it’s made him really self concious trying this stuff on. So much so that he DOESN’T! We find something and he just puts the jacket on but refuses the pants out of insecurity.
So bee’s….. I’m not sure exactly how to handle this so that I can affirm my guy but stay on task and get the F*&$ing suit! Today is June 1st — EXACTLY 2 months before he walks down that aisle. We are on go time.
If you are in SF any suggestions? Any other Bee’s have an experience like this?
