Another "gotta love 'em" post!

Last time we were in Florida- hubby found out he had a meeting he needed to be at. He didn't know this before he left and did not bring any work clothes.

I said, "Honey- how can you go to a work meeting without work clothes?"

He answered- "I can wear what I wore on the plane (khakis and a blue dress shirt). No problem!"

"Ahhhh, but dear, its ahhhhh, a little dirty, isn't it?"

"No, no it will work out just fine!" (he is such a positive guy)

I was a little nervous for him. He's planning to go to a big business meeting in what kinda clothes???

I decided, well if he's not nervous why should I be! It's his deal, he knows what he can and can't do (I think).

The next morning he left for the airport. He came home the following evening...
dressed in this (see above photo). 
It turned out on the way to the airport my guy had a change of heart. He heard it was business dress- in other words, suits!
Nothing was open, he had no options except a very inexpensive store that was on the way to the airport.
For under $100 this guy got a navy sport coat, dress shirt, tie, dress pants, socks, dress shoes and a belt!

I'm not gonna tell you where he went (you can guess if you want) but when he got home I was so impressed with my guy!
I just think he looks so handsome!!
He is definitely a type B and a problem solver!

The best part is that none of the "big shots" at the meeting even noticed that my guy was wearing less than stellar quality clothes. For all they new he had on expensive work clothes from a top notch mens clothing store!

Way to go, Honey!! Way to improvise!

Awwww....that is a solve it kind of guy!! :)

That is funny! You might be surprised how many of the big shots wear those kind of clothes anyway. It just isn't some people's thing no matter how much money they make.

Oh my gosh, I'm cracking up. He looks GREAT!! But the thought of him improvising at a less than stellar store is hilarious!

Why is it that guys don't crack under that kind of pressure? Can you imagine if that had been you or me? Sheesh, we wouldn't melted like a puddle, never ever to recover.

I can think of several places he could have gone...but not sure of the area...spill it!! Where did he find such a deal???

I agree with Faye--let us in on the big secret! He looks fantastic for 100 bucks!
