THE NDP launched another set of TV election ads Thursday that criticize Progressive Conservative Party Leader Hugh McFadyen -- but allow he's got good taste in clothes.

One attack ad that started airing this week features a fictional McFadyen in a job interview to be Manitoba's next premier.

The panel agree to turn down his application.

The punch line?

"Nice suit, though."

McFadyen and his wife Jennifer said Thursday they saw the ad Monday evening when it first aired and had a good laugh.

While attending the third annual Harold Buchwald Memorial Luncheon hosted by the International Academy of Cardiovascular Sciences Thursday, McFadyen joked the grey suit he was wearing was bought at Tip Top for $125.

"They might have thrown in a tie, too," he said.

Later, McFadyen said he didn't have a lot to say regarding the new ad.

"It's been a good source with joking around with a lot of people today," he told reporters at a campaign event in south Winnipeg.

"The key is we want to be factual with our ads," he said.

"Our ads talk about our commitments to move the province forward."
