Here's an XY win-win: starting today, Neiman Marcus is hosting its Men's Made-to-Measure Event, which helpfully invites fellows to invest in a custom-fit suit ahead of fall.
The first win: customers receive a one-on-one consult with an on-site tailor, selecting the fabrics, linings and buttons that most suit their tastes before settling in for an expert measurement session.
Win #2: anyone who makes a made-to-measure purchase receives a $250(!) gift certificate to the restaurant of his choice. Seems like the perfect chance to show off that new chichi suit, no? The store just asks that customers call ahead to set an appointment. The offer is valid through September 7.
