I'm sure the woman paid a lot of money for them, especially if they were custom made. I don't really see this as being a hilarious story; it's actually kind of sad.
I know she paid a lot, and that's why I sympathized with her (despite the fact that I didn't want to buy them). But they weren't custom made. It was just a very expensive, good quality company she had bought for her daughter. And although it is sad that she cannot sell them after having spent so much (and her daughter barely wearing them), there is nothing wrong with seeing the comical side of things.

If they fit they would look ok (like the RCMP people, I don't think they look ridiculous, just traditional) but they were much too big on me and I did look funny. Although they were fashionable, I still sort of find them funny looking when they are just on a hanger, I am from a later generation so I suppose like many other things I prefer the newer fashion. Most probably in 20-30 years people will think that certain things we wore now looks funny.
