.....a sharp dressed man! I think that's how the song goes....or at least something like that! Anyway, if you are close to my age, you will get the song reference and can now join me in singing it all day long! LOL
As I mentioned previously, Papa's clothes need quite a bit of an update. This position is interesting in that the level of business clothing is upped yet he will also be wearing scrubs when in the surgical area. As of right now we don't know how much time he will be spending in either section so it makes things a bit more challenging.
After his "health exam" this morning (really a "pee in a cup" drug test for the job), we will drive over to check out the outlets. We figure he could really use two more "casual business" suits - if that makes sense -, another pair of dress shoes, maybe an additional three to four dress shirts, and a few ties that don't look they are from the year 1995! I'm not sure how much we will be able to cross off this list because we also have time constraints since G1 has to be picked up from school and brought over to work. But we are going to start the clothing search, at the very least.
Papa would really love a new Brooks Brother's navy blazer as well. Now, if you know anything about Brooks, they are great quality but extremely expensive! Papa discovered that they have a once a year sale in June so that's almost perfect timing! He said he can definitely wait until then to check them out!
So while the initial outlay may be a bit expensive, we are looking at it as an investment in the future. As I have stated before, this job has extreme room for growth - both positional and monetarily - so it's worth making him look and feel sharp! =)
