Casual Wednesday. . .



Following a mid-morning thunderstorm, it's a warm one here today with temperatures expected to reach the mid-80s Fahrenheit, so a mix of silk-linen-wool on top with cotton chinos, loafers, and the usual trimmings plus a new pocket square, which I believe is vintage rayon.  

The jacket too is a vintage number from Polo that has been around in my overflow closet in the TV room (across the hall from our bedroom) since before the pandemic.  I finally got around to taking it in for the usual minor alterations late last month and figured today was just the time to take it for an inaugural spin before the weather changes and cools appreciably by the weekend.  

Already had some favorable feedback from a few observers today, which ain't a bad thing.

  1. Very nice outfit, Heinz-Ulrich. I too like those wool/linen/silk tweeds this time of year, and I recently bought a brown knit tie very similar to the one you are wearing in the photo. I will need to put the tie and a "summer tweed" together soon while waiting for the coming fall chill and the return of woolen flannel and tweed.

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

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. My sister routinely walks to the cathedral, about three blocks from her place, to enjoy the grounds and gardens.  The Bishop's Garden, in particular, is a place she likes to sit for quiet contemplation and internal dialogues with our late maternal grandparents and mother, very much in keeping with the Episcopal side of things.  Our grandfather, who was raised Methodist, became an Episcopalian when he married our grandmother.   Before you ask, I am not sure tha

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
