The Clothes Make the Dog

February 16, 2008

does this jacket match no pants? 

I really, really hate to shop for clothes.  I’m about to embark on a journey to the men’s department, I need to buy a sport jacket for a business trip.  I have a suit…you’ve seen it, but it doesn’t travel well and the event is in Florida.  The event is business casual, but there will be a semi-formal dinner which will require a jacket. 

 I typically wear black or khaki slacks, so I’m leaning toward a navy-blue or gray sport jacket.  I’ve spent the last hour or so trying to get on-line color coordination advice from internet strangers.  I’m pretty much back to where I started, I’ll have to ask the clerk for advice on colors.  Teh internets have failed me this time.  I’m off into meat world to throw myself on the tender mercies of menswear salesmen on commission.   

**UPDATE**

Mission accomplished.  Went to 4 different stores and was studiously ignored by all clothing sales-persons.  I guess there is some sort of Abe Lincoln/George Washington Day sale going on.  I found what I needed off the rack and got the hell out.
