One can never be overdressed in my opinion, especially on this campus where there are plenty of male professors and administrative muckety-mucks walking around who know what they are doing when it comes to matters sartorial. My own garb today included a vintage Corbin Glen Plaid silk-wool suit, a recrafted pair of Allen Edmonds shoes, a Black Watch regimental striped tie by Reis of New Haven (one of my very best Central Illinois thrifting finds ever), and socks by Dapper Classics.
I know, I know. A bit much in the sock department given the other patterns and colors. But I mistakenly thought I grabbed a pair of plain navy Merino wool socks in the dim light of morning. It was not to be however. I was pressed for time this morning and went with what I found easily in the overstuffed sock drawer. Not shown are the white linen pocket square and the blue and white seersucker braces that I chose in lieu of a belt.
Tomorrow is another Hawaiian Shirt Gonzo Friday, and while I would normally not have any commitments on campus, and thus would be free to remain at home, there is a proessional development seminar in the afternoon I wish to attend. Even if that turns out to be a waste of time (and they often do in my experience), it will at least provide a ready excuse to shave and dress for the event. There is a new Brooks Brothers Makers necktie that arrived in the mail to day, which I will enjoy wearing.
"What??!! A man who actually enjoys wearing a necktie??! Did I hear right?" Yep. You did.
