This romantic comedy centers is around Peter Juhasz, so trusting that he has nearly run himself out of business. The customers at his clothing store love him, just not enough to pay their bills. A gentle husband to his wife, he has failed to notice that she’s fallen in love with their lying clerk, and given him all their savings so they can start a new life together in Berlin. 'Fashions for Men' is about how Juhasz — jilted, bankrupt, exiled from his shop — finds his way back to happiness.
See it if you like old-fashioned comedies, altho FFM cries for cuts. The premise--a softie needs a shrewd woman--is fun. Act II of 3 is weak, endless.
Don't see it if stylized plot and dialogue bore you. Not grounded in reality. Women's costumes were bad, but sets are nice. Most of the actors were strong.
See it if You like witty, sarcastic humor. It is all about embracing new ideas.
Don't see it if You are too serious of a person, or have stereotypical notions about different groups of people, coz this play will challenge them!
