Work suits starting to look a little shabby? Wishing that that cool worn-in jeans look applied to trousers? One men’s clothier is sick and tired of men cutting back on buying suits because of the economy — so they’re promising to refund a portion of the money you spent on the suit if you lose your job.
“We understand the uncertainty everyone is facing,” Jos. A. Bank CEO R. Neal Blake said in a statement this morning. “We want to help the customer look good at work, and if he loses his job, to be dressed appropriately as he meets with his next employer. It’s like giving all of our customers a bit of unemployment insurance.”
The suits have to be purchased during the $199 suit sale, which runs until April 9. You must lose your job between April 16th and July 1st.
Also, you can keep the suit.
So,this that you could buy a car, a new suit and book a vacation, lose your job and spend your new free time getting money back from JetBlue, Hyundai and JoS A. Bank. Sounds fun.
