A New Suit

PS Magazine - - THE LAST LAUGH -

Harry was in need of a new suit, so he bought a nice piece of fab­ric and be­gan his search for a good tai­lor. The first tai­lor he vis­ited looked at the fab­ric, mea­sured Harry, and then told him there was not enough fab­ric. Find­ing this hard to ac­cept, Harry went to the tai­lor next door, who mea­sured Harry and the fab­ric and then de­ter­mined that there was enough to make a three-piece suit.

When Harry re­turned to the sec­ond tai­lor to col­lect his suit, he no­ticed that the tai­lor’s son was wear­ing trousers made of the same cloth. Puz­zled, Harry asked, “How come you have been able to make a three-piece suit for me and trousers for your son when the tai­lor next door could not even make a suit from the same amount of fab­ric?”

“Sim­ple,” replied the tai­lor, “The guy next door has two sons while I only have one.”
