Rarity gave him a small, sad smile as he apologized. She shook her head slightly. "I didn't mean to make you feel bad about it, if I did. Just... I know my own experiences were less than wonderful, and I'm sure others wish to forget what they saw as well." She said, pushing the conversation aside as she covered her mouth and cleared her throat.
"Yes, yes. This one looks decent. Perhaps a little loose in the withers." She said, levitating over a few pins to behind Time Turner. He'd feel a bit of moving fabric before the suit sat a little differently on him. "Ah, yes, that should do~ Now, you may slip out of that jacket, but be mindful of the pins." She said and got the third suit ready.
As she looked at it, she gave herself a bit of a scolding under her breath. "My my, Rarity... what were you thinking? Slate Grey and White? Way too bland for this design..." She shook her head and levitated it over to Time Turner to slip into. "I apologize for this one. Not quite the fashion statement I hoped it'd be." She said with a little forced smile.

"Don't worry about it. You didn't make me feel bad at all, just more aware of my lack of tact regarding the situation," he replied, giving a bit of a sheepish grin as they moved on with the fitting.
He carefully moved himself out of the clothing, making sure to not let the pins she placed get out or poke him in the process. As he did, he glanced over at the third suit, the one that Rarity sounded like she didn't like all that much. Ehh, he had to admit that grey and white was the most interesting color scheme. It didn't look bad, but it didn't look all that stunning.
"Well, it might work as a simple, uh, work outfit or something for when you don't need something completely fabulous," he replied, trying to be a little helpful as he put it on,"But, yeah, it does seem a little...simple in the color scheme."
Rarity watched as he donned the outfit. He agreed about the simplicty of the outfit, but something about it on him... She hmm'd to herself, rubbing her chin with a hoof. She turned and glanced at a rack of ties she had sitting by (Part of the same spark of creativity as the suits.) She levitated over a light tan tie (The same as Time Turners coat) and holding it to the collar of the suit.
"Why... This is actually surprising. The earthy tones of your coat and hair accentuate the simple greys brilliantly." She said with a smile, draping the tie over the suit and tilting her head slightly. "Though, that does pose a bit of a problem with who I can sell to. It limits the clientele quite a lot, doesn't it?"
After a few more moments of thought, she looked away, toward the register. "Guess I'll just have to donate that to the first pony I see that would be able to pull it off, wont I, Dahling?" She said, turning back to Time Turner with a look of fake-shock. "Oh my! Who would have thought we'd find one so quickly?"

”Well, I have some family members that you could possibly sell it too. I might be a single child, but extended family seems widespread. And we all seem to have the brown coat color,” he said, chuckling,”But I am glad that you at least found one pony that makes the suit work.”
As he fiddled with the tie a little bit to align just right on him, his ear perked up at the fake shock of Rarity as she offered to give him the suit.
”Oh, that is quite generous Rarity, but I couldn’t just take it after all the work you put into it. I do like the suit though, so I wouldn’t mind paying for it if you’d like.”
Rarity gave a small chuckle at his Idea of selling this particular ensemble to just members of Time Turners family. "That would be quite the advert, wouldn't it? 'Now selling the Slate Collection, but only to those related to this one Earth Pony from Ponyville!'" She laughed a little bit and shook her head lightly. A Strange idea, that was.
She looked to him with kind eyes as he offered to pay for the suit. "Come now Dahling~. You've come to help me out with sizings on these suits, the least I could do is pay you for your help. And I see no reason at least part of the payment shouldn't be the suit. You look quite handsome in it." She said with a definitive nod, looking him over again for a moment.
She took a bit of a breath before placing a gentle hoof on his shoulder. "Besides, as I have said, with how hard it would be to sell this anyway, I couldn't possibly expect a friend to pay for it."

"Hey, don't knock the idea. If you make a line of work wear you'd make a fortunate just selling to the Apple family. We Earth Ponies seem pretty good at having big families," he replied, his mind trying to determine how weird and/or flirty that might sounded depending on your attraction towards fertility. Ah well, he thought it was fun.
"In any case, if it would help you out I guess I can take the free suit. Been needing a little more formal wear when doing presentations...think I'm supposed to do a visit at the schoolhouse for a history lesson anyway." he said as he looked himself over a bit.
"Oh, I know just how big Earth Pony families can get. I recall spotting a large crowd at Sweet Apple Acres that were all related to Applejack." She said, staring off for a moment. "And I believe a good deal of Appleoosa is related to her." She thought on this for a few moments before shaking the thought from her mind and looking back to Time Turner.
"Ooh, a History lesson at the Schoolhouse? What kind of history? The founding of Equestria? The divide of the Royal Sisters? Ooooh, Discords reign?" Rarity asked with a bit of an enthusiastic face. She wasn't a huge history buff, but there were a few stories she enjoyed hearing.
"Oh, it was no problem, really dahling~ Let me get you the bits I promised you, too. Let it not be said I try to pawn off drab suits to get out of deals~" She said, counting up some bits and thinking for a moment before grabbing a nice satin pouch and packing them away, sliding the pouch into a pocket on the suit. "There, a suit calls for a different Bit Pouch than the normal ones I give out~"

"Ah, well, they actually wanted me to talk about the whole Crystal Empire thing. Surprised they didn't ask you or the other Elements to do a talk as well."
Not only had Rarity rejected the bits, she had even given him another little gift. She really did live up to the Element of Generosity title, didn't she? Maybe to a bit of a fault, buuuuut, well, he was on the receiving end so he couldn't complain too much. At this point, however, he did have to put a bit of a limit.
"Oh, really, after getting a free suit I don't think I could really accept the bits too. Seriously, I'm good," he said, putting up a hoof to take out the bit pouch and placing it on the table,"And I will make sure to tell ponies where I got it. Free advertising is the least I could do for you after all," he said with a chuckle.
