Sales Joke of the Day (March 18) Collared.

A salesman sought medical aid because he had sore, popping eyes, couldn't see well and had a ringing in his ears.  A doctor looked the salesman over and suggested removal of his tonsils.  The operation resulted in no improvement, so the salesman consulted another doctor, who suggested the removal of his teeth.  His teeth were extracted, but the salesman's eyes still popped and the ringing in his ears continued.

A third doctor told him bluntly, "You've got six months to live." 

So the doomed salesman thought he would treat himself right while he still could.  The salesman bought himself a flashy car and hired himself a chauffeur.  He then went to the best tailor in town to make him a few custom suits.  The salesman even decided to order a dozen shirts that would be made-to-order.

"Okay," said the shirt maker, "let's get your measurements.  Hmm, 35 sleeve, 16 collar - "

"Fifteen," the salesman said.

"Sixteen collar," the shirt maker repeated, measuring again.

"But I've always worn a 15 collar," said the salesman.

"Listen," said the shirt maker, "I'm warning you.  You keep wearing a 15 collar, and your eyes will pop and you'll have a ringing in your ears."

Moral of the story.   While you may not always be feeling your best, sales professionals know you must always try to be looking your best.  Custom suits and custom shirts are well worth the investment.  They'll add to your confidence and your professional image.  Besides, when you buy custom, you'll be buying American, so you'll be helping out with our economic recovery at the same time.  

"A man in a well tailored suit will always shine brighter than a guy in an off-the-rack suit."
