How do you try on a suit? (video)

So I was in Syms trying on a suit before Pesach, I ended up not getting one just because if I shop for longer then 20 minutes I get a headache. So I was sucking in my stomach for the pants to go on when I noticed a yeshiva guy in the corner of the open aired dressing room trying on a suit. He was shuckeling, so I assumed he was davening mincha- kind of like they do at airport phone booths. He was hidden enough, you could see his butt and back poking out of his little stall as he swayed back and forth. Then he started thumb dipping and doing various yeshiva gang signs. I then realized that this was the way he tried out suits to make sure they worked in a variety of situations. If you are new to this site- please check out my You Tube page, I just hit 100 subscribers last week.

    Suits are made with a drop 6 measurement, so a 40 jacket will have 34 pants. I have to have them taken out 2 inches to fit well. Always buy based on the jacket. You can always alter pants cheaply. Nothing worse than buying a suit so the pants fit straight away but then you have a jacket too big for you. E.G. me buying a 42 jacket which comes with 36 pants, when I need a 40 jacket with 36 pants.

    I wonder what it would be like when a chosid tries on a new bekesha: we can only imagine the things he might have to practice (maybe pretending to return a/c’s to walmart at the end of the summer, cheating on taxes, smoking etc etc.

  • Hesh April 23, 2008, 10:29 PM

    is there any other kind?

  • Homeschool Mom April 24, 2008, 6:27 AM

    That ceiling is WAY too low!! It’s giving me claustrophobia just looking at it.

  • JerseyGirl April 24, 2008, 6:43 PM

    Really funny video, but the ceiling is so distracting! How tall are you that you’re almost hitting it?!

  • Mikeinmidwood April 24, 2008, 8:44 PM

    Awsome video seriously

  • s(b.) April 24, 2008, 9:43 PM

    nice, hesh.

  • Hesh April 24, 2008, 10:58 PM

    I think the ceiling was only distracting after everyone mentioned it, just like the last video that someone said I was slapping my legs too much. Jeez you ppl have ADD

  • Rafi April 25, 2008, 6:45 AM

    no, the leg slapping has always bothered me, since video 1. good job on fixing it..great video

  • Candela April 25, 2008, 10:55 AM

    I see that others have already commented about the ceiling, but are you living in a dollhouse or are you a giant? Holy cow I couldn’t pay attention to the video because I kept watching for your head to hit the ceiling!

    Anyway keep on keepin on, your hilarious man.

    Everyone under 30 who lives in Monsey has to take a basement apartment unless they have $1500 a month to shell out. $300 a month is insanely cheap- so the basement ceiling stays. I will hopefully be doing some on scene ranting- if I can find someone to film me.

    shooting ideas
    1. at the park, balance your camera on top of a sturdy sign or the roof of your car and shoot outdoors
    2. rest camera on top of a public mailbox and try not to get run over while shooting on location
    3. in the produce dept. at trader joe’s, or any supermarket (find a quiet aisle), just perch your camera on a right-height shelf

    If anyone’s interested there’s some great power metal concerts up ahead.

    Helloween/Gamma Ray sept21 @ BBkings
    Edguy/Kamelot October 15 @ bbkings
    Nightwish/sonata Arctica sept27 @ Nokia Theater

    I figured I’d get a good audience here.

  • Hesh April 25, 2008, 4:17 PM

    SB I have thought about it but the wind sucks, I also would love to shoot while I am hiking- but I kind of view the woods as sacred, so to me its like shooting while in shul. Who knows, first I have to think of ideas for footage.

  • s(b.) April 25, 2008, 5:37 PM

    yeah, wind’ll totally mess up your sound. I got my bike fixed. Can’t wait to test it out next week. My Israeli uncle tried to tell me sfardim can ride bikes on shabbos, but I think he was joking.

  • s(b.) April 27, 2008, 9:17 PM

    I found something about sfardi bike-riding:
    I guess he wasn’t joking.

  • monseychick April 28, 2008, 1:47 PM

    ha it’s so funny what e/o says abt the leg slapping. i noticed it from the first video i watched. i’m trying to figure out what it signifies…like maybe a really bad joke is coming up or something….

    as for basement apartments in monsey, u gotta hook up with the right ppl. my friend was looking to find someone to take over her basement apartment. the celing is higher than urs and i know it wasn’t too expensive

  • Hesh April 28, 2008, 7:59 PM

    Yes but for 300 a month with a huge backyard, washer dryer and a deck- that is sick, oh and I know the content is what counts, backrounds and fancy stuff I will leave for the folks who suck at making people laugh.

    Although you can always hit the donate button up top and maybe then I can move somewhere normal.

    What would a girl do in a dress?

  • Hiker May 8, 2008, 11:15 PM

    A girl in a dress would walk past the mirror multiple times to gauge the look she gets when passing by windows on the street. They would also throw their hands up and so OMYGOSH ten million times- mimicking what they say when their friends get engaged.
