Mashood: Beautiful African Clothing ; Beautiful People.
I’ve written a lot of reviews. I’ve reviewed concerts, restaurants and stores. I’ve warned and extolled.
I have never written about an experience like the following.
I guess the best way to do this is just to tell you what happened.
I am getting married on October 2, 2010. Our celebration is Festive Casual Attire. As the groom, I really wanted to wear African clothing. There is nothing that celebrates like African clothing. Like African music, it extols joy.
I got a recommendation, Moshood at 698 Fulton Street in Brooklyn. I live in Boston so I went to their website:
I saw a few things I really liked. In fact, I was having trouble deciding. By way of full disclosure, I am a white dude. A very big, white dude with a very big bald head. I love bright colors. I was having a tremendous amount of difficulty deciding if I should go with my favorite color, orange, and risk looking like a 240 lb. pumpkin or going with the color of royalty: purple.
I was having trouble deciding between pants and a dashiki or a grand buba (essentially an African poncho). I couldn’t afford all three. The pants and dashikis are $75 each and the grand buba is $95.
The reason that I am going through all this detail is that I went through all this with the people at Moshood over several phone calls. I even placed an order and immediately changed my mind. They were patient and even called me to double check and tell me a certain color was unavailable.
Ok, so I got the order: A purple dashiki and purple linen pants.
They included a complimentary grand buba and hat!!! Ok, am I clear here?
THEY GAVE ME A GIFT WORTH OVER $100 ON A $150 ORDER!!!!!!
I am totally blown away. All I can think of is that they knew it was my wedding and/or were touched by a white dude from Boston wanting African garb for his wedding.
The only thing that I can think of doing to show my appreciation is to sing their praises all over the web.
Have you ever experienced such an example of generosity with people you have never met???
I have not - PERIOD.
Please consider giving these people business. They truly deserve it and you will be thrilled.
I am truly touched by this gift and wish to publicly say,
