Sadly, Noah was born without a sense of fashion.

We were at a whiskey tasting event in New Jersey with friends when we got to talking to some random gentlemen about our Zero Gravity wedding. It turned out one of our new acquaintances dresses men for a living! Noah and I explained how we had come across the wedding dress, but we really had no idea what Noah was going to wear.
Sadly, Noah was born without a sense of fashion:
Neil Machlovitz offered to help! Two weeks ago, Noah went to J. Lucas Clothiers to get fitted for a custom tuxedo.
It is not hyperbole when I say that Noah is “fashion blind”. Once, a girl walked by us wearing a tube top, with sparkles, and Noah did not notice her at all:
“Did you see that?!” I asked.
“What?” Noah said.
“That girl was wearing a tube top! I hope those things aren’t coming back into style. Were they ever really in style?”
“What’s a tube top?”
“What that girl was just wearing!”
Given the option of various buttons, pocket angles and pocket depth, Noah was a bit overwhelmed. “I’ve never thought about any of that stuff,” Noah says, “I don’t have time for that flibberty flabberty floo.”
We are talking about a man who nothing but blue dress shirts and khaki pants to work for an entire year. One of his coworkers swore she would die if he came in with a different color shirt, so I got him a red shirt for Christmas. After New Years that coworker didn’t live up to her promise and instead complimented Noah.
I hope that J. Lucas Clothiers can make my hardcore nerd of a husband look cool!
