“Birthday suits tailored here” (gym sign)

“Birthday suits tailored here” is a gym sign that has been printed on many images. “Birthday suit” means one’s naked body.
“Birthday Suits tailored here. #AllUpInYourFitness #LFK #lawrenceks” was posted on Twitter by The Summit on April 9, 2013. Many gyms have used the jocular sign.

While walking in San Francisco, I passed the Pacific Heights Health Club, The sign out front said, “Birthday suits tailored here.” It was a witty reference to the idea that working out at a gym helps people get their naked bodies in good shape.
