It has dawned on the management of Jos. A. Bank that the crazy discounts have had the opposite of the intended effect.

No word on whether or not they plan to stop offering suits with giant shoulders.

A few months back, while in the beginning stages of a hunt for a tuxedo, I tried as many local options as possible. This lead me to walk into a JAB for the first time, and to try on some of their recent models for the first time.

The tuxedo jacket that I put on that claimed to be my size was arguably of the worst fitting garments I have ever worn. It was short, much too short, and had this sort of pinching effect on my whole torso, not to mention the shoulders that Patrick talks about, they make Press's Canadian jobs seem natural. The whole thing looks and feels very cheap and squeezes my body into this terribly awkward Y shape, and to top it off, the salesman is convinced that it fits great. Not to mention the fact that he was kinda sweaty and had about an inch of dandruff on his collar and shoulders.

Suffice to say, I left quickly.

The guy I buy shoetrees from wears leather sandals with his beige nailhead suits.

J. Garcia's finest.

And, if I recall, french cuffs.

I do have a decent salesman at a different JAB, where I bought the bowtie for my black tie rig.
