I got some nice new clothes. I did a little research into what makes a good basic wardrobe, and I've been adding items to my collection ever since. I got a very nice blue sport coat from Uniqlo that I like so much I'm actually considering buying a couple more of them. Uniqlo has Big Boy sizes in the USA, of course, but the secret is that they also have them here in Japan; but you can only order them online. But they also do COD delivery, so you can just order the stuff and pay for it when the Yamato guy arrives.
I also went to Aoki and invested in a nice lightweight wool suit in charcoal grey pinstripe, a sport coat in a lighter grey, and some nice houndstooth grey trousers. They also had a deal on shirts and ties; any combination of three and the third one was free. I got another dress shirt at 5500 yen, a tie at 4500 yen, and a very pretty tie at 6500 yen. The shop assistant looked at me and said, "Of course, the 6500 yen one will be free." I will be buying more clothes from that shop. The clothes fit like, words fail me, they were tailored for me, and the price was pretty reasonable. I'm long past due for dressing like a grown-up anyway, and, in Japan, people take you more seriously in a suit, so, what the hell.
Also, nice clothes make me feel nice. They make me feel like I'm stylish and suave, which is what they're supposed to do, and they make me stand up a bit straighter, and nobody can tell that I'm listening to Siouxsie and the Banshees at ludicrous volume levels on my iPod Touch unless they're standing right next to me anyway.
