The Mayor’s blue suit
By Josh Resnek
The mayor’s wardrobe could use a remake – at least that’s the talk among those who notice the mayor tends to wear the same blue suit again and again.
Also, those who closely watch everything about the mayor, often remark that his leather shoes need shining or a bit of repair.
Since the mayor doesn’t show up that much at city hall, the same blue suit can work better than if he showed up wearing it everyday.
Even the mayor must get tired of wearing the same blue suit.
At $189,000 a year, you’d expect the mayor to have three or four blue suits – say a denim blue suit, or the New Blue Suit sold at Men’s Warehouse.
I don’t think the mayor is a Men’s Warehouse shopper.
He seems more a Giblee’s type, you know, expecting and enjoying the pampered rich men’s suit emporium over off the rack suits.
But let’s face it, fitting the mayor into an off the rack suit would prove to be a disaster.
Even with changes he’s recently made with his diet, he remains a large man, with a wider than most girth and so he just can’t try something on and take it away.
Simply putting on a blue suit and wearing it over and over is not the way to wear a blue suit.
The mayor should know this.
More than seasonal apparel, a quality blue suit can carry you the whole year-round, presuming you know just how and when to wear one.
