Sharp Dress-Robed Men

Ernest's black suit has seen a lot of use since we made the investment 2 years ago.  It's lucky he was able to have the pants lengthened!  This year he's worn it twice a week, and it even subbed for a tuxedo at prom.  There was a dress robes rep from Men's Wearhouse at Hogwarts, but either he didn't have enough time or the line was too long so he decided to make do with the suit.

Ernest's young lady lives on the other coast, so he went to prom with friends instead.  I'm not sure where Mr. Blue got this fine combination -- but I love those shoes.  I hear he has blue suede shoes, too.  Actor, artist and foodie, he's been a great friend to Ernest this year.


Another friend (since back in the WorldofWarcraft-playing freshman year) still had his dress robes  rental from last year!  He had forgotten to return it.  After calculating that a year's rental added up to $6000, he and Ernest bravely ventured back to Men's Wearhouse and it turns out they didn't even have a record of it.  So they charged him for a week, instead of for a year.

It was a Men's Wearhouse week, because I had seen there was a BOGO sale, so now Ernest has two new ensembles.

Bad cell phone pictures, but that's all I have.

The tweed (here's a better view):



And the classic blue blazer.

Ernest is stylin'! I love BOGO deals. My son is wearing a suit to prom too...to help us save a bit of $ I think, which is just as sweet as he will look wearing it on prom night.

Also, Ernest would be welcome at ANY restaurant I owned.

Definitely sharp-dressed young men!

Somehow (I credit our lifestyle), we have never had to buy suits for our young men. These pictures make me regret that just a wee bit.

I agree with Green Girl - there IS just something about a man in a sportcoat. What a hottie!

Also? Blue Suit Guy? I am enamored.

Love his friend's shoes! Stylin'

There is just something about seeing a young man in a suit jacket- it makes me so happy. Maybe it is like a peek to the future?

It's nice that your son likes a nice suit--I don't get that reaction in my house.
