The other day for some reason I randomly remembered this little bit about "putting the knee in" a suit to jacket to get a better fit. Funny as hell. Skip ahead to 5min30sec. to see what I mean.
The funniest part is, I've actually seen this done in real life. I think this show hit closer to home than many viewers not conversant with clothing retail may have realised. Things like leaving with a pair of pants and returning a few minutes later with the same pair and saying you've found another, or talking a customer out of a checked sports jacket only to find that's all you've got in his size and then talking him back into it. It's all true, don't kid yourselves. At least it was true in a time when stores were staffed by people who attended to their customers (a dying art)."The sleeves will ride up with wear." Pure Comedy Gold!
If you've never heard of this show, I may have just sent you on an hours long Youtube expedition. You can thank me later.
Those of you who may have had similar experiences in clothing retail, I invite your stories.
