crisis averted: my weekend saga



this weekend i traveled home for a few engagements. before leaving, i packed my wool navy blue 3 piece suit. i also threw in a pair of jeans and speckled pair of tweed pants. this was enough to take me through the weekend and offer up variations on my wear.
when i arrived home (my parent's house), i realized i left my entire garment bag. between throwing my pendleton bag on my shoulder, wrangling my dSLR camera, i left behind my most important luggage. i should have put that in the car first. i didn't. Eh.

i have bespoked suits, off-the-rack suits and thrifted suits in my closet. in a moment like this i needed something fresh that really spoke to my personal style. since my hometown doesn't offer much by way of great quality men stores, i visited the local thrift store. to my great fortune i found this amazing three piece grey speckled suit...in my size.

unfortunately the pants were a wee bit snuggy. ummm. i don't do those. ha!
so my crisis this weekend was avoided by a mere trip to a local thrift shop. say what you want, but the quality garments i can find in these places often surpasses the quality of clothing that is currently on the market.

so all in all, my weekend crisis was a averted.
fyi: i am tempted to list this suit for sale, im just not sure any of you guys really want it. lol. if you do drop me an email.
