What my son wore Wednesday from Goodwill

Yep, you heard me! My son wound up with  Goodwill duds for his big day!
I went to 4 other stores before I hit GW up.  He is in such an awkward size right now.  He is tall and thin like his Dad of course. Boys clothes do not fit him, and Men's clothes are iffy, depending.
I think he looked pretty darned good.
He was happy with the duds...and for a whopping $20.00 Mom done good!
The suit jacket came from Goodwill. Tie is Mike's and he had the black shirt already.  
He has that serious look.  He said he felt very grown up tonight.  
Of course some of the Kid's wanted to know if that was Mike's Jacket...he said, see my Dad he is 6'4 LOL!
Ok the shoes...all Italian leather, looked never worn...$3.50!
These fine young men are in the ROTC program in High school.  Alex is planning to do ROTC. Although, he has no desire to join the Military.  He is looking forward  to the experience of training and learning. ( really he wants muscles I think to impress the girls...I'm just sayin) 
He is excited, and says he is up for the challenge, and that it will be.
And there he is amongst the other class mates whom also received this honorable award.  
We are in a wonderful school system. Our experience here has been nothing but positive and very promising for the future.
Thank you for sharing our special day.
Can you believe Alex let me post  about himAGAIN?  
I think it's pretty cool of him..I won't push it much longer though...
I love you Alex!!~

Debbie, you did do good. He is so handsome. I didn't realize your husband is that tall. My hubby is short, but my brother is 6.2 and my son is 6 ft. It is so good that Alex is in a good school system.

Oh my gosh! What a cutie pie!!! I love this picture of him. I have a 14 year old son and it's impossible to get a picture of him. When my camera comes out he...heads for the hills. Looks, like it was an incredible night!!!

He is so cool and supportive of Mom. I love all the parents taking photos of those great students. My sons weren't in ROTC but one went in the Coast Guard. They're a great group. Congrats to your son again.

Congrats again to Alex! He looks so handsome! WD is also in that awkward stage where men's clothes aren't quite right, but boys' clothes don't fit right either. I need to start shopping GW for him. He's too tall for boys pants, but men's pants start at 29 with the occasional 28. I know that back when we were kids they started with a 27 waist band. Thanks for sharing.

Alex looks so handsome and grown-up
(brings a tear to your eye ... doesn't it?)!

You did a great job clothes shopping! It's so hard at that age ... You want something nice, but don't want to spend too much. They will either not wear it again or grow out of too fast.
Congratulations to both of you on a job well done!

Truly a handsome young man! I love his name and his style. My husband was in ROTC in college and did go into the AF from there. Not such a bad life.. :)

What a handsome guy! I know how hard it is to fit them sometimes. At 17 mine is a string bean. 6'1" and not an ounce of fat on his bones. All arms and legs and a small neck. I'm so hoping he will fill out soon! You did good Debbie, the shoes are really nice.

If you've ever noticed my 17 year old son on the blog, he's 6 feet tall and 110 pounds.He wears 28x33 jeans. I totally feel your shopping dilemma! But you did indeed succeed, and he looks quite handsome. Besides being a genius.

He is looking mighty fine! Congrats to him also. Love that you thrifted the jacket and shoes! My son (now 24) once wore a 'thrifted' sports coat on his Sr. Trip cruise.
