I begin my new job on the 19th and I need new clothes.
The dress code where I work requires the guys to wear suits or jackets, ties, etc. No more "business casual" like where I have been working for the past six years.
I haven't really had to buy any nice, new clothes in fifteen years. I went into the monastery in 1993 and back then all I needed were black Levis and a white undershirt under your habit.
I also have to admit that I know squat when it comes to men's fashion. I know, I know, one would think otherwise given my sexual orientation, but really, I'm a disgrace to "my people."
I'm in desperate need of the "Fab Five" but apparently, they only help out straight guys. It isn't fair.
There's a Men's Wearhouse just down the street from me. My plan is to just go in there, say "Do me" and hand them a credit card.
I hope they have really good service. Starbucks and The Container Store have raised the bar when it comes to customer service, so I might get cranky if not properly waited upon. I'm already cranky at having to do this. Not a good sign.
Wish me luck.
