Here is Bob in that hideous Hawaiian shirt [which he has even been been known to wear to conduct worship on a Sunday morning] and his very baggy black trousers. I am very proud of my man, who hast lost well over 1½ stone in weight since May 2011. But I am struggling with his wardrobe. It’s all too big, and his trousers will fall down, unless he wears a belt, and bunches the fabric round his waist, like Santa’s Sack. I’m a competent needlewoman, but alterations of this magnitude defeat me.
The very helpful man in our local M&S said they could alter suits to fit – but only up to a 4” waist reduction, and Bob has slimmed way beyond that. IMHO Bob needs a dark suit for conducting funerals and looking like a Proper Minister.
Above is one of the lovely new Savile Row inspired suits from M&S [click here to see the full range] Bob is a very smart guy, and I think he deserves to look good when he turns up at Church Events to represent the Nonconformist Clergy [his Anglican mates can wear what they like under their fancy embroidered vestments] I’d choose this suit below for Bob - it is in the big & Tall range [he is 6’4” tall] so I know it would fit him properly, and suit his new trimmer figure.
So please, St Michael and all the angels at M&S, would you consider Rev Bob for your man-over challenge blog competition, and kit him out with some gear that actually fits? Thank you.
[and I know that Bible verse about the attitude of the heart is of more importance than a man’s outward appearance. I can assure you that my beloved’s heart is in the right place – but his wardrobe isn’t. And right now I am as poor as a church mouse. Help!]
