Guy with down syndrome saves up his money for 1 year to get the custom suit he’s always wanted

November 18th, 2020

Even though most of us have spent the last nine months in comfy clothes, lots of us still like to get dressed up and look snazzy when we can.

We feel good when we look good. We also look good when we feel good, but fashion is a lot of fun! It allows us to express ourselves.

In my everyday, I’m a jeans or yoga pants kinda girl. And let’s be honest, who’s getting dressed up these days anyways??…

While those with a good fashion sense can turn even thrift store finds into a trendy frock, it’s nice to get fancy things every once in a while.

Fancy things that look nice and fit us perfectly in personality and fit.

Fancy things cost money, so it’s nice when we get to treat ourselves to them.

Sometimes that requires time and some work in order to save up money.

And finding the perfect fit isn’t the easiest for all of us.

In addition to buying something expensive, people who are shorter have to get all of their clothing tailored which costs even more money.

Still, Jon was determined to find the perfect suit he could look sharp in.

He saved up money from his job at Krogers for a whole year to be able to pay for it.

Despite the fact that it would typically be difficult to find a place where he could find a nice one to fit his 48” tall frame and 42” chest, Jon knew the right place to get the job done.

It was the same place that hooked his dad up with a sweet getup a few years back.

Jon knew that Richards Bespoke custom men’s clothing store in Nashville, TN was the spot where he could get the custom-made suit of his dreams.

And boy did they deliver! Jon’s suit was everything that he hoped for and his reaction was priceless.

“Meet Jon. Jon works part-time at Kroger and it’s been his dream to purchase a custom suit from us ever since his father was fitted for one a few years ago. Being 48” tall and having a 42” chest, there is literally nowhere he can buy a suit that remotely fits,” the post reads.
