An atypical shot of the upper half for today.
Delaying the inevitable this morning over coffee and a glazed doughnut. In other words, putting off reading through the last nine student learning team papers, which sit just behind my laptop on the large table I've occupied in a quiet corner of the library here at MSU. So far among the papers I have read and graded this time around, I've seen the pretty good, the irredeemably bad, and the pitifully ugly -- along with a number of excellent papers to be fair about it -- in the bulk of the work that I have read through during the last week and a few days. Cue up the Ennio Morricone music, please.
In any case, the jacket glimpsed above is a 3/2 number from Southwick that I came across in my favorite thrift/charity haunt several years ago in our old stomping grounds of Central Illinois. I've got to be careful to keep everything else very plain whenever I wear it for obvious reasons. The pocket square, not visible here, is plain white. Other items include golden tan corduroy pants and a pair of Merino wool Fair Isle pattern socks (primarily red and blue) with the usual Allen Edmonds long-wing brogues plus a tan braided belt.
Ok, no sense in fooling around any longer. Let's get to it. No time like the present. Uh-huh!
