Happy Easter from Classic Style. . .

The top this Easter morning following a shower and blow-dry.  Some Wahl clippers are on the way, via Mr. Amazon, to clean up our necks and around the ears.

And the message for today?  Put on a collared shirt before you sit down to the dinner table, gents!  No one in your family should be forced to endure man boobs and/or nippleage peaking through a t-shirt that's too small, and which should have been given to the ragman 20 years ago.  Come on.

And the lower half.  A bit chilly here today in Mid-Michigan, so we're still sporting the usual corduroy jeans.  The navy and red surcingle belt (one of two casual belts in the rotation) is just out of sight here.

Finally, what would Easter be without a photo of the mad chef preparing some Easter Bread?  He's gotta work off some of that sugar-infused energy following waffles with syrup for breakfast and then several chocolate eggs from the Easter basket for dessert.

 The finished product.  A bread-version of The Easter Bunny, Ernst P. Haase himself.

The Problem of "Business Casual" Attire. . .

This is how it's done.  Business Casual the RIGHT way, ladies and gentlemen.  Even during the summer months.  A photograph (taken by Studio B Portraits ) which appeared in 425 Business Magazine in May 2017.   T his post on the problem of business casual dress began as a quick postscript to a previous blog entry last week but quickly grew and grew as additional thoughts occurred, were developed in more detail, and revisions made.  So much so, that it seemed, eventually, like a better idea to make the initial P.S. afterthought into its own entry .  Are ya ready, Freddy?  Then, here we go. . .  ------------ U nless you actually plan to sell beach snacks and trinkets on Cozumel, become a serial barista, or greet customers at a fancy nightclub after taking out huge student loans to attend university somewhere for four or five years, plus an MBA afterward, it's really a better idea to err on the side of (somewhat) more formal work attire any time you head into the

"If you see something you want. . ."

  The above photograph has been "borrowed" from the J. Press website. "I f you see something you want," advised my late mother, "buy it.  It won't be there when you go back later."  A favorite (and wise) adage hers that I still follow whenever possible.   So when this item appeared on clearance at J. Press, I mulled it over for a couple of days, and then clicked the requisite boxes to make the online purchase.  Should be here within the week. Once upon a time, I had a similar jacket by Corbin that I foolishly purged before we left Central Illinois ('Illi-noir' anyone?)  for Michigan almost 10 years ago.  Not sure what I was thinking at the time since I did like the item and wore it routinely.   This one will be a bit nicer and help me make sartorial amends.  At least to myself. -- Heinz-Ulrich
