Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Dress Shirt, Tie and Socks

--by Vincent Chia, posted Feb 22, 2007
After landing my first full time job after graduating from college, I bought a brand new suit at a local boutique.

It was obvious to the owner that it was my first suit, so he made sure I felt comfortable with my decision, and said I could return it and have it exchanged. When the suit was delivered to my house, it had an extra dress shirt, tie, and dress socks attached with a note:

"You have to have these items to complete the picture. These are on the house."

To Marco, thank you for that gesture. It was very thoughtful, and meaningful to a young kid who had just started working. I regularly refer my friends to the store, not for the suits, but for the person selling them.
