Pants Take Banzai Trip to Costa Rica

Jason Anderson went all out and bought a tailored $1300 suit at Judd Frost Clothiers in Wayzata, Minnesota, for his wedding. After a final fitting check, he took the garment bag and got on a plane for Costa Rica, where the wedding was to take place. Only afterward did Frost discover that Anderson had left his pants behind! Knowing the large groom would never find proper replacement pants in Costa Rica in time for the wedding, the tailor was determined to ship the pants to him.  

After finding no help from FedEx, UPS or airline package services to get the missing pants to the church on time, Judd Frost put his 32-year-old daughter on a southbound plane with the $500, tan gaberdine suit pants.

Jessie Frost, who works for her dad’s men’s store, took off about 6 a.m. Sunday and landed about 11 hours later at the San Jose International Airport. After waiting an hour for her van driver and enduring a bumpy back-roads detour around a washout, she and the waylaid trousers finally reached the beachfront resort on the Pacific Ocean, where Jason Anderson, 32, of Maple Grove, and his fiancée, Heather Spaeth, 32, of Wayzata, are to be married Monday afternoon.

Judd Frost said he had reached Spaeth through Facebook on Sunday afternoon and that neither she nor her future husband had realized his wedding suit was missing its pants. They were equally surprised that a special courier was en route to deliver the missing garment in time for the 4 p.m. wedding on Monday.

Now that’s customer service! The trip had side benefits for courier Jessie Frost, who took her fiancé along. They attended the wedding and are visiting a cousin in Costa Rica. -via reddit
