    Ladies...thank you so much for your support! I LOVE that I can come on here....vent....get a good laugh....then move on! You ladies ROCK!
    I think I may have figured out the program fiasco so that's one down....and hopefully the tailor will fix the pants tonight. Fingers crossed.

     

    Capecodder....did you try ebay? I bought the clear zipper kind from a seller in Hong Kong. He had them in quantities of 25 and 50 and shipping to Canada was free. In fact, that order arrived quicker than any of the stuff I got from the US! :)

    Love the idea of flood pants though!!  Hope get most of everything solved on your vacation day.

     

    Does anyone know where I can get clear luggage tag holders?  All the websites I found so far have a minimum order of 100 and shipping to Canada is super expensive.

        Capecodder - I bought mine from ebay too - If I remember, 50 of them...vertical, with the clear zip up...were around $20 total.  And they did come really fast.

         

        Camy47 - WHOA!!  How did your wedding sneak up so fast?  Ahhhh...the joys of hemming...my FI just put on his brand new Italian suit (work uniform) this morning which he had his mother hem the pants of, and I didn't have the heart to tell him that she hemmed them too short...but they totally were.  Ughhhh!!!!

            Ohhhhh, yes...you laugh...but if only you knew the whole story about how my FI and the rest of his crew have been waiting 1 1/2 years to transition into these uniforms...because the suitmakers in Italy were experiencing an issue with fabricmaker...who had an issue getting the wool out of Ireland...and in the meantime we continued to have to buy dress shirts, ties and dress pants for my FI for work.  It was an international conspiracy to further test my sanity and it all came crumbling down when a little lady in Canada thought she could hem a pair of pants and really couldn't.

              I used trading card sleeves from the Dollarama package of 5 for $1 and they are a hard, rigid plastic.  I just brought them home and punched a hole in a them with a regular hole punch.

                      I agree with Kat.....knowing that he had to wait so lon gfor this new suit, I wouldn't say anything either.  If he ever questions it, say you didn't even notice, LOL
