Extra big suit

tax deductions suit

As a concert organist, you often have to move back and forth between multiple keyboards and lots of pedals. To have a little extra flexibility to move his arms and legs around, one New York organist decided to get one of his suits tailored so that the pant legs and sleeves were about six inches longer.
