act of faith

Learning outcomes for today:

  1. all clergy tailors should have tattoos, piercings, and a healthy sense of the absurdity of clerical shirts.
  2. being measured by someone who simply doesn’t care who you are or what the tape measure says is liberating
  3. it is much more fun to hunt for clergy-shirts in pairs (especially with someone who does not habitually wear black)
  4. some clerical outfitters have a very good sense of what their customers want and are skilled at giving it to them.
  5. nonetheless, there is no reason on God’s good earth that a clerical outfitter should stock a pale-pink poly-cotton, with silver-glitter butterflies.
  6. the A1 is not the M1.  Forget this at your peril.
