Poodle necktie courtesy of Chipp and the wool pocket square from the folks at Put This On. The wool flannel jacket is by Brioni, picked up for a song several years ago via Ebay, and the green and white university stripe OCBD is of course from L.L. Bean. Long live New England fustiness!

Who says Friday afternoon department meetings on socially conscious pedagogy at the tail end of the semester are no fun? Arf! Arf! A seasonal variation on a combination of garments that owe a great deal to G. Bruce Boyer. The first appreciable snowfall of the season arrived here in Mid-Michigan early this (Saturday) morning, so the suede shoes will likely not see the light of day again until sometime in March, or even April depending on when the winter snow and spring slop dry up enough for nice shoes once more. In the meantime, the cross-country (Nordic) skis are lined up by the backdoor. Winter can arrive full blast any time now as far as I am concerned.
Two views from our front step at about 9:30 this morning. The fall is my favorite season, but I like winter weather an awful lot too. Now, if only I could get the blasted snowblower to start, so it's ready when we really need it!
