People ask me what my mind set is when I look for a new suit. Most of the time I have nothing specific guiding me other than, ‘ I’ll know it when I see it ‘ Occasionally, something will come to me before I start, such as a color, or style. At that point, I’ll look until I find what was in my mind’s eye. What is extremely rare is when it seems to happen by fate. This is unmistakably the case with this suit.
The place I buy the majority of my suits is quite a distance. (Can’t tell ya cuz then I’d have to kill ya ) On this particular day, I just happened to be out that way & thought I would stop & talk to the owner. Well… it just wouldn’t be me if I didn’t ask him if suit came in that was my style. As it turned out, one of his suppliers had sent out one sample suit. The owner was going to send it back thinking it wouldn’t sell. Soon as I saw it I knew it had to be mine; so I rescued it from going back to the ‘ pound ‘ with no home. : )
Here are the other reasons why it had to be fate: 1) As I stated earlier, there was only the one suit & it just happened to be my size ( Suit was discontinued ) 2) It was in the back, ready for return to the supplier. Number three is the real clincher. Less than two weeks later, the band ‘ Iphonic’ asked me to be in their music video “Stand Up”. The script called for me to arrive in a DeLorean ( the car in the movie ‘Back To The Future’ ) It is made of stainless steel, which of course gives it the silver metallic look. As you will see in the video & pics I’m posting, this suit looks like a magnet would stick to it. How perfect is that? Fate I say.
The thing will always remember about this suit is how exciting and fun it was to shoot this video. How could working with the guys from the ‘ greatest party band in the land’ not be a blast? On top of that, I had the opportunity to be part of the creative process in my first music video. How cool is that???!!! I consider myself to be a very fortunate person. Till next time…………….
Check out the music video….Very entertaining & will lift your spirits…ENJOY!
