Today's shoes, although the photograph was taken two or three years ago in my den in our old house in Illinois. Closing is in three weeks, and then we will have sold it.
At the conclusion of today's class on Scandinavian and Nordic Cinema, a student approached me to touch base about a couple of items on the syllabus. As he turned to leave, he asked, "By the way, is that a jacket with a 3/2 roll? I've never seen one in person." I was wearing my J. Press Herringbone tweed jacket among other items.
We then spent the next ten minutes talking men's classic attire and dress shoes. I should mention that said student was dressed rather well in his own Allen Edmonds shortwings, a sportsjacket over a pressed sports shirt, and wool dress pants with a sharp crease. He was on his way to a job interview in downtown Lansing. Yes, indeed. It seems there are some 21-year olds out there who get it, which does the mind and soul good on this unseasonably warm November afternoon.
