Growing up in South Carolina, Mary Going hated the clothing her parents made her wear. They wanted girly skirts and gowns; she desired anything boyish, settling for saggy shirts and cutoffs.
Every time I had to spruce up, it was like an anxiety attack, Going says. I would wait until the eleventh hour, hate everything I had to wear, and end up using something that felt bad.
When she and Martha wed in 2008, Going understood something needed to alter. She commissioned a custom-made suit, and while costly (it cost more than a month’s lease), she was stunned by how confident she felt in it. For more brands visit chescadirect.co.uk.
