Dooku: The Tailor of Tatooine

Dooku enters a shop marked 'Genuine Tatooine Tuxedos'

SHOPKEEPER: Welcome, good sir, to Tatooine Tuxedos!

Eyes Dooku's sand-speckled top hat

SHOPKEEPER: You look like you could use a new hat...

DOOKU: Never mind the hat, my good man. Now, if you could show me to the suit section, I'd be very much obliged.

Dooku is led to the suit rack, where he begins leafing through tags

DOOKU (muttering): Not Armani: too formal... not Gucci: too heavy...
(to shopkeeper) Kind storeman, would you happen to have anything a little more trim around the waist?

SHOPKEEPER: Well...we *do* have a fresh stock of Bantha skin in now...if you're willing to wait, I could have one custom made for you...

DOOKU: Why, that would be splend - I'm afraid I'll have to pass, old boy. I'm in a hurry, you see.

SHOPKEEPER: Ah. Well, then I suggest something from our 'Sandyman' range - made for someone with a tall figure, such as yourself.

He points Dooku to the rear of the shop, who then begins rifling through more suits for several minutes, before emerging with a jet-black bantha-skin top-of-the-line blazer.

He places it on the store checkout

SHOPKEEPER: Righto, now let's see your money.

Dooku reaches very slowly into his pocket, then withdraws and places 5 credits on the bench

The shopkeeper stares at the small pile of coins, then points at the door

Well, I suppose 'Second Skin' second-hand clothing would have been a better choice - but their suit range is so distasteful!

Think one would that since so picky about clothes you are, look like "Dark Side Liberace" you would not.
