When people ask me how I would describe my blog, I respond, "it is a fashion blog about dating."
Zero clarification. Wow.
What that means is that I write ad nauseam (thank you wikipedia for telling me how to spell that) about dating and when something really cool about fashion comes up, I write about that.
Today, I'm stepping off the dating alter (--for sacrifice, not marriage) and talking fashion.
A couple of weeks ago I got a new suit (pictured) from Dress Code, a new custom suiting company in Utah. I have been getting so many compliments on the suit, that I started to carry their card in my pocket to just give them out to people asking for more info.
Well this is not just any suit, it is a custom fitted suit. A super-hyper-uber-custom fitted suit. Imagine that unrealistically perfect guy/girl that everyone tells you not to wait for because they don't exist...now personify that as a suit.
I own it.
Oh and did I mention that their style consultant came to my office, took all my measurements, had me pick out the style, fabric, color, number of pockets, type of fit, suit liner and lapel size? But don't worry, I even picked out stuff I didn't know was pick-out-able: the width between my pinstripes, the piping color on the inside of the suit and number of belt loops. Some things I wasn't sure about and got suggestions of the latest trends and recommendations for my body type.
I waited a few weeks and then got another drop-by to my apartment where the same style consultant had me try on the suit and altered some minor things that very day. Talk about service. (I felt like Aretha Franklin walking into Showtime at the Apollo...I've never been, but we can all assume.)
Top that off with a pair of vintage shoes that I bought at an antique store and, my friends, you are looking at a $250 outfit fit for the fashionable FitzGerald dynasty.
My montra of "you either get what you pay for or you'll eventually pay for what you get" is being put to the test with Dress Code.
Get in touch with them on Facebook or email them. ...I'm running out of their business cards.
(And if you hate me (yet still read this blog...ANONYMOUS), know that I don't get a cut on anything you buy...I just really was impressed with this company and want to help spread the word!)
