a tailored experience

I’ve been hankering after a bespoke tailored suit. Inspired by icons like Katherine Hepburn, Marlene Dietrich, Patti Smith, Annie Lennox, Ellen DeGeneres.

I’ve never been on a salary that would make buying one an easy part of budgeting, and I’ve never prioritised saving-up to pay for the luxury. Until now.

When I booked a consultation with a tailor the booking confirmation email included the opportunity to be a ‘Mystery Shopper’. I couldn’t resist. They provided me with a detailed evaluation form. The form helped to set my expectations about what happens during the consultation. I’ll be a more well behaved customer. Probably.

Cricket Jumperwendy: I’ve recently realised that I’m a cross-dresser

Spottydog: (laughs) are you serious? I’ve known that for ages!

wendy: well obviously I suspected, what with all the trousers and buying mens jumpers.  But I bought the jumpers because they’re virtually the same as the womens jumpers except they’re cheaper.  I thought I was just buying cheaper versions of girls clothes. But I’m not sure anymore. I think I might be a transvestite. Is a transvestite the same thing as a cross dresser?

Spottydog: does it matter?

wendy: well, I’d like to know what to say to people when I come out of the closet

Spottydog: you’re not in the closet

wendy: oh yeah…  ….do you like my new cricket jumper?  It’s to go with my kilt…
