The top this afternoon includes a red and white university stripe ocbd and a gray crewneck Shetland Wool sweater that I bought on clearance from L.L. Bean two or three Januaries ago.
Who says you've got to look like a schlub when hanging around the house on a cold Christmas Week afternoon? This is what I changed into following a visit to the pediatrician with the Young Master for his yearly check-up midday today. I wore a tweed jacket and primarily navy plaid tie plus navy dress cords with a crease for that appointment by the way.
I find that medical and dental personnel tend to be less patronizing when you go in looking like you know which way is up. Know what I mean? You can always tell by the tone in their voices. Same thing with airport ticketing agents, security personnel, and airline crews as well as other service providers. That's reason enough for me to suggest with a perfectly straight face that an adult male above the age of 18 should always be dressed a cut or three above the herd when venturing out in public. It greases the wheels of life in so many ways.
And the bottom, featuring L.L. Bean duck shoes (it's slushy here in Lower Michigan at the moment) and red ski socks peeking out.
