Ironically in all of this wedding planning, David has spent more on his attire than I have! I find the total role reversal to be pretty hilarious.
For his wedding David wanted to wear a period piece called a frock coat. Let’s just say, this is not an item that you get to grab real quick from the Men’s Warehouse. We knew walking in that we were going to end up having something special ordered or made, but the trick was where….?
David special ordered his suit online from a little website called Suitopia which is based out of Sweden.
We thought, “Wow! How awesome, it’s totally customizable and we can design everything we want right to the T.” However, Wells Fargo would be our party crashers.
One day, unsuspecting day he got a call from Wells Fargo identity theft department.
“Um, Mr. Benbow, it appears that someone has made a large purchase with your bank card in…. Sweden.”
“Oh, yeah. That’s my suit for my Victorian themed wedding. I made that charge.”
Apparently, there was silence on the other end for a moment. “Really? Please hold, I have to get a manager.”
After about a 35 minute conversation and being put on hold twice, David was able to purchase his custom made suit, which is currently being made.
