Tan Suit Wednesday. . .

 The upper half at about 7:30 this morning as I sipped coffee in one of our on-campus cafes and replied to a few emails before meeting one final time with my 8am class. 

And the lower half before the caffeine kicked in, and I got a case of the. . .  Happy Feet!

A bright, sunny Wednesday in late April here in Mid-Michigan today.  Continuing to have fun with my attire in a playfully irreverent way before the semester ends, and I transition to the usual summertime "at home" uniform of  khaki shorts, knit polo or Madrass sport shirts, and the ubiquitous leather dock-siders.  The new Sebago pair seems to be breaking in well.  

Today's photos feature a combination of Hickey Freeman, Land's End, and the usual Allen Edmonds shoes-belt combo.  Not shown are a pair of cotton light green and navy dress socks by Dapper Classics

The Pleasaures of a Well-trained Dog. . .

  A few final photographs from my visit to my sister in Washington, D.C. last week.  These include  one of 'Mr. Beau,' my sister's meticulously trained and truly wonderful Doberman, another of my sister, second cousin, step-father, and yours truly on the steps of the church outside Lexington, North Carolina just after our late mother's interment service, two of me solo at the National Cathedral, and a final one of my sister and me hamming it up during a long evening walk the day before I returned to Michigan.

Almost Mid-June Sunday Style. . .

  A fter two months, Blogger has decided to allow me in the door once again, so I can add a long overdue post documenting my take on classic male style.  Since we are almost in the throes of summer, let's go with a warm weather theme this morning. Now, the items above will not be to everyone's taste:  Deck shoes without socks, shorts, pleats, skinny pale legs, etc.  All invite tisk-tisking and debate in certain online fora, but that's ok.   I wouldn't wear attire this to campus Monday through Friday, or to church.  But for relaxed, comfortable warm weather-wear around the house during the weekends, with maybe a quick trip down the road for a gallon of milk at the super market, this will do nicely, thank you very much.   It's certainly preferable to the wrinkled, torn, stained sloppy alternative we see everywhere in 2022.  Neither is it at all far removed from how the various men and boys across three generations of my extended family presented themselves during even
