Slim Fit

Help me convince Dr. J he should keep these pants!  Yesterday I was at the outlet mall buying jeans for the kids for school (Children's Place Sale + 30% off coupon + 10% off coupon on my Children's Place card = one great deal) and I found myself drawn to the Calvin Klein store.  The thing about Dr. J is he is deliciously slender.  He of course doesn't see it that way, but as his wife who has been following the slim fit suit/tie/pant trend, the man has an asset he keeps drowning in over sized shirts and pants.  We had a conversation about this a few months ago and he said and I quote, "I think it's time for me to start paying for more expensive clothing, so that it actually fits, instead of just buying what is cheapest."  With this in mind I picked out these pants and shirt. 

My inspiration, Lawrence Fox, known for his role as Detective Sergeant James Hathaway, in my opinion the sexiest TV detective there is. Thank you Masterpiece for giving us the show Lewis, as if I didn't already love you enough. 

Can I say that I loved the fit!  Dr. J seemed fine with them, that is until he asked me the price.  Then I had to tell them they were $40 something a piece.  That's when he said, "Well I don't like them $90 worth."  The man is breaking my heart!  I mean let's be honest dress pants and shirts aren't cheap.  I think it has been a little to long since someone has done there own shopping :)  What do you think, is $90 too much to pay for an outfit that fits? 

On a side note, Dr. J did not want to pose for these pictures.  When I went for my camera he disappeared for about a half an hour.  Who knows where he was hiding, but the man knew there was no hope for him and so finally reappeared to face the firing range :)


  1. I love the look and think he deserves some nice clothes...he's a doctor now!

  2. Mmmmm, I love Hathaway. Unfortunately, I know so little about fashion and clothes that I can't even tell a difference between what he's wearing in the photos and what he wore before. D'oh!

    And $90 is a decent rate for quality professional clothing. He's not gonna grow out of it, right? And his lab coat will shield it from spills. Yes, it's worth it, until the skinny look goes out of style...;)

  3. Great outfit, great price in my opinion!

    Tell him if he wants to take it back he'll have to go to the trouble and do it himself. And that while he's out he can just pick up something he likes just as well at a price he likes better! HA!

    Seriously though, it's a keeper.

  4. p.s. slim fit is not going out any time soon!

  5. I think it's totally worth paying the higher price if he likes how it fits and looks. Just because something is cheap, doesn't mean you should get it. I have found that sometimes the cheap clothes are what sit in my closet and never get worn, and in the long run, I think that actually makes them more expensive because you are not getting your money's worth if it just sits there.

  6. Maybe he should try to buy suits from for a slim fit.
