Perils of the off-the-rack way of life

I really didn't need this,
an off-axis button in a new
pair of jeans. Oh, wait to
break them in, was my haber-
dasher's answer; it's his 
answer to everything, as if
it's up to me to do my own
tailoring. I tell him, fine,
but don't sell me any wine.
I don't want to stain my feet.

    1. We endure a lot worse from our haberdashers than this "break it in, yourself" standard of advice would indicate. Generally speaking, I can say that if you find an entry headed by a man gnawing his cuticle, it is probably best to skip right over it.
