So he went to the finest tailor in town and got measured for a suit.
A week later, he went back to the tailor for his first fitting.
He put on the suit, looked in the mirror, and thought to himself, “I look stunning. I could really do business in this suit”.
As he was preening himself in front of the mirror, he reached down to put his hands in the pockets.
To his surprise, he noticed that there were no pockets in the suit.
There were no pockets in the suit jacket, no pockets in the waistcoat, and not even any pockets in the suit trousers.
He mentioned this to the tailor, who asked him, “Didn’t you tell me you were a senator?”
The man answered, “Yes, I did.”
The tailor then said, “Whoever heard of a politician with his hands in his own pockets?”
