A Polo Ralph Lauren Italian-made linen number I splurged for and bought new in May 2016 worn with, among other items, a tie Mom and Stepdad brought to me from Milan in1996 when I house-sat for them that summer -- looking after the dogs and, yes, a parrot -- worn with a pair of recently recrafted Allen Edmonds spectator shoes.
A navy blazer (with heavy metal University of Wisconsin buttons added later) and gabardine dress pants along with a yellow OCBD and a vintage Rooster Madras necktie. The last item was made in Sri Lanka but purchased from a vintage clothing sore several years ago in Champaign, Illinois.
And finally, a vintage seersucker suit by Abercrombie & Fitch, made long before the company began producing cheap, throw-away fashion for middle and high school kids.
Enjoying the final days of summer-like weather and related attire here in Mid-Michigan. Cooler, more comfortable conditions are here now thank goodness. Bring on the tweeds, corduroy, and plaid wool neckties!
