I probably shouldn’t confess how much we shop at our local Tractor Supply Co. store. It’s where I got the stainless wire for my lace blocking, it’s where countless dog toys have been purchased, and it’s where my favorite jeans come from too.
When I saw the pink Carhartt hooded jacket in the flyer, I mentioned it to the Knight. He was in TSC yesterday, and he called back to confirm my sizes. While there was no Carhartt in my size, there was a C E Schmidt, and it was sherpa lined, even in the hood! He says it’s my present for Sissy’s birthday, from the girls, so that I have NO EXCUSES to skip dog walks as the weather gets colder. Hem.
He also purchased four pairs of jeans in my size. Four different brands, four different fits. The Aura review is linked above. I’m pretty sure that now that I have a pair that fits again, they’ll remain my most favorites. I returned the Levi’s 505s because they just weren’t a good fit , and the Schmidt jeans were bootcut, and this petite chick with thick thighs and short feet looks ridiculous in bootcut jeans! I kept the Wranglers, but I don’t think I’m going to love them.
It was actually a banner day in mail-order world, but those reports will have to wait for another day. Today’s just about giving the Knight props for going above and beyond. Does anyone in your life shop for you with much success?
