okay, not really. they aren't even the spawn of satan... but they are annoying!!!
who knew that there were so many freaking styles of tuxes these days? the guys have almost as many choices as we women do for our dresses. something i thought would be a really simple experience, was out of control.
"what kind of tie do you want? what about jacket length? 2 button? 3 button? 4 button? NO BUTTON??? how about the collar type? this one is really important. do you want the collar to be straight? sharp? kiss you on the neck while you walk?? cumberbun? vest? and if a vest, what style? solid color, or a pattern?"
the kicker of all of this was- with all of these questions to answer, they have nothing for you to try on. they actually expect you to look at a picture of a tux, or swatches of vest pattern, and choose it all that way. and anyone who has looked at a swatch of anything knows how deceiving that pattern can be. it looks good that small, but put it on something large and all of a sudden a once cute pattern looks terribly cheesy. who does this? could you imagine if that's how we had to get our dresses? oh honey, just pick it from a picture- i'm sure it will look just fine on you. we went to more than one place and called others. they're all the same. you don't try anything on. well what if you're thinking that a really light pinstriping might look great, so you order it, only to find that you look completely fucking stupid in pinstripes? i find it hard to believe that every single male on the face of this earth who has rented a tux got it solely from looking at a picture. it's enough to make me want to open a shop where everything is in store. and you try it on and pick what you like.
is this really how it's done?!?
