    man's candour

    There was disappointment at not getting the suit that I was gratitude for the man's candour.


    Here, suit refers to what?

    Also, if you could, please change the above sentence with your own words.

    Re: man's candour

    Hi Gary

    This sentence only makes sense to me if I should alter it like this.

    I was disappointed for not getting the suit but I was grateful for the man's candor.

    Then "suit" stands here for costume or outfit.
