that suits you

i like to think i know a little bit about clothes.
not an awful lot, but enough to get me by without looking ridiculous.

i know what shapes fit what types of bodies,i know which fabrics are worth spending the extra money on and i think i know which colours should never be combined.

apparently, when it comes to buying mens' suits, it's a whole different ball game.....

m.r. and i went suit shopping for the wedding party this weekend.

why, after many years of being in love with clothes, do i have absolutely no concept of what makes a good suit?
i mean, really. a black suit is a black suit, right??

m.r., fortunately for the look of the wedding party, knew better.......

but how annoying is it when a boy knows more about fashion and styling than you do!

that's awesome.

my hubs knew exactly what he wanted for ours too. and seriously...his suit ended up costing more than my dress! eep!

Umm. What sorts of things are there to know? I'm with you on this one.

oh goodness tell me about it! my problem is my husband is even more clueless than me! so when it goes to picking out a suit or a tie and whatnot it takes him catching hell at work for either of us to realize ive done it all wrong! id say i dress myself quite well but mens dress clothes baffle me! ;p

Men's clothing befuddles me as well. Grant does a much better job for himself than I could do, though.

Thanks for your sweet comment on my blog the other day, btw!
