I was looking at a sports jacket the other day. This was at a clothing store that had the words ‘Sale’ plastered across it, which caught my eye as I walked past. I decided to step in for a bit and see if there was anything interesting, more out of curiosity than anything else.
The jacket was dirt cheap after all the price cuts, so I threw it on to give it a test drive. As I was looking at myself in the mirror, a sales rep sidled up to me and told me it looked great on me. I knew he was paid to say that, but I still smiled. It did look great on me.
“You know what would go better with that jacket,” he said. “Dark jeans.”
The jacket was dark, and I was wearing light jeans. I looked in the mirror again. Maybe he was right. Wouldn’t hurt to try out some dark jeans and see if it looked better.
