Wednesday Suit Style. . .

 
The upper half.



 
The now obligatory wrist shot.


 
And the lower half.  Not visible are matching belt and navy socks with a medium blue vertical stripes.


Decided to go with a full suit for this morning's Zoom meeting and office hours, snapping the pictures when everything was finished but before I headed upstairs to change clothes.  Two cats and an unpredictable child, who makes no secret of his  dislike for school in online form, mean that it is probably best to don some harder wearing items that can be laundered easily should unforeseen difficulties arise that require my attention.  Too bad since it was enjoyable wearing this combination of  items for a few hours this morning.

  1. Nice outfit, Heinz-Ulrich. I am besuited as well, today. A taupe wool gabardine 3/2 sack from J. Press, blue and white tab-collar graph check shirt and paisley tie, both from Brooks, and tan, pebble-grain longwings. I am actually in the office today, but still by myself since everyone else is working from home. However, the weather is warming up and my wife and I plan to eat dinner al fresco tonight, our first venture to a restaurant since one warmish day in December.

  2. Why, thank you Charlottesville! I will be eager to get back to campus late next August with the dressing possibilities that will once more bring. For now, the occasional online appearances will have to do, but how nice it feels to have professional clothing on once more.

    Best Regards,

All opinions are welcome here. Even those that differ from mine. But let's keep it clean and civil, please.

Avoid Careless Chatter. . .

    E specially about the personal details of our lives.  There is a lot that OUGHT to be kept more private in 2022 than has become the accepted norm for many.  With the conscious and intentional cultivation of classic style in mind, however, we want to avoid oversharing and keep a bit more of ourselves to ourselves.  Exactly what personal information and how much of it to keep private seems to be a slippery concept though.  Here’s my take based on what I was told and observed as a child and young person at home.  Basically, one should keep oneself to oneself in all respects (finances, personal worth, accomplishments, politics, sex, dirty laundry, etc.).  As my late father used to advise when we were very small, and I am talking preschool and kindergarten, there were particular subjects that were not discussed outside the immediate family.  There is a time and place for sharing certain details of one’s life, but most of the time, those should be played very close to the chest,

I Might As Well Be Spring: The Attire for Monday. . .

    C old, blustery, and wet here in Mid-Michigan today although we might possibly have a couple of inches of wet snow at some point.  It just started actually.  Still some limited cross-country skiing up north at one of the Nordic ski centers we like, apparently, but I have not been able to get away for that. But it is springtime according to the calendar.  Attire-wise, I managed to stow the fall and winter stuff and bring out the spring-summer-early fall gear on Saturday.  Always fun to rediscover what you have not thought about in several months. Equally satisfying to discover items that have not ever seen the light of day.  Such is the case for today's shirt from J. Press (hanging in the closet for a year or more) and the necktie, which (hanging on the back of my tie rack, where I keep all of my repp stripe numbers) for 8-10 years.  Imagine that. -- Heinz Ulrich     P.S. Believe it, or not, someone actually just used word "please" (rather than the brusk "Can I ge

A Little Sisterly Advice. . .

    A s promised, my Washington, D.C.-based sister (she lives within walking distance of The National Cathedral) has sent some photographs of one recent combination of items that are pretty typical of her attire for both work and during her off hours.  Without further ado, let's turn things over to my sister for her particular philosophy on how to present oneself in a put-together way regardless of the situation or occasion: As a wardrobe minimalist, and one raised on Ivy Style, every item in my wardrobe has a purpose. Living in the city, and walking almost everywhere, my clothes need to function in an active capacity.  While I have a classic style, it is most often married with functional edgy pieces (boots, skinny jeans, etc.). In the past 15 years, I have gravitated to a neutral color palette for the clothing items in my closet and, at present, my wardrobe is comprised of 65% black items, 15% blue (including denim), 15% grey, with the balance most likely white (shirts, tees, p
