The suit saga

Two of our boys are not into dressing up but there's one who is dying to own a suit!!!
He's wanted one since he was little but he hasn't had a need to own one.
We talked about buying him a sport coat for an upcoming event he's going to (which isn't totally necessary) if he wanted to pay half...but he wasn't into that idea. ; )
The other day we were out buying a dress shirt and a tie for this event when he tried on a suit coat just for fun
and the look of elation on his face was SO cute!!!!!! I wish I had a picture of it.

And then he said:
"Look, Mom! Puff sleeves!" (referring to the shoulder pads) And gave me this pleading look.
I just burst out laughing. He is so funny!
~Let me tell you, it took all my will power not to give into to a cute guy quoting Anne of Green Gables to me. : )
You just have no idea!

So, we ended up getting just the dress shirt and the tie and leaving the store with him referring to me as "Mirilla." LOL
He's too cute.

How did you resist? ???

Have you thought about looking on ebay or going to a thrift store? I suppose it would be cheaper!
