About a year or so ago I said to the boss I think my jacket is getting a bit tight she said get a new one and suggested going shopping for one .A streak of fear ran down the spin The dreaded thought of shopping [email protected]~& .casually I added I will get one shortly, but having to slip into the jacket I had for the past god knows how many years looks okay I said if I don't button it in hope of avoiding the shop and she suggested I see a tailor. A streak of fear ran though me of cost , so I got a tweed jacket on line after I was measured as a compromise to avoid the dreaded shop

It is nice material and I do like it , but you guys a warning the woman will always get her way and usually opens the wallet just when I need a load of carving wood.

Best deal I ever got was from an outlet park. A Marks and Spencer outlet near us, 100% wool Italian cut jacket, last one, £18! Obviously not too many 48" chest chaps out that day!
but was it a voluntary thing or was it a dreaded shopping experience

My experience told me just think what you say 1st, if you think out loud your in trouble

Its like the wife asking you does this dress look all right , this statement is nothing but a trap if you say it looks fine and she doesn't think so your in trouble ,If however you say I like it she will say you would say anything so when a question like this arises your on a loser because the only opinion she wants is hers
