Last month Michael and I were shopping for miscellaneous wedding things at the mall, when we passed the Men’s department at Elder-Beerman. In an instant, Mike turned his head and visually scanned the model poster on the wall. Then he spotted it. A black Calvin Klein jacket, front-zip, with pockets that lay smooth on both sides.
He sprinted over to the clothing rack, spent 15 minutes looking in the mirror talking about the wonderful characteristics of the jacket, and then slowly put it away and left the store.
A month later, we were walking past the same store when Mike saw the same black jacket hanging on display once more. After a stressful time at work, this was the most excited I had seen him act all day. He walked around the store parading the jacket for 10 more minutes, after which I took the hanger to the counter and bought him the jacket. I couldn’t resist…it is a rare occasion when a guy gets excited about new clothes. Oh Calvin Klein, even men can enjoy retail therapy!
Here’s a shot of that glorious outerwear:
