I don't know about chestnuts in blossom, but here's the attire for today. The shirt is from Mercer & Sons while the silk necktie is old (or 'vintage' in polite company) and features Eustace Tilley for those who might wonder that about that dandy chap. Not sure if this means the tie is of the critter variety, or the club, but when I spotted it on Ebay a few years back, I pulled the trigger immediately. How could I resist?
Given our weather forecast for later today, I've also brought along an old topcoat in a Prince of Wales plaid and a lovely heavy navy blue umbrella from Davek, which was given to me by my sister for the last birthday. That hat is from Borsalino and one of five fur felt fedoras in the rotation.
Yes, I've become a hat guy. At least during the week. I know. And I'm so ashamed. When the weather warms up, I've got a nice Panama that will make the rounds. At least when I'm dressed for campus.
