Thursday J. Press Jacket Style. . .



Very touching this morning to see how so many [though clearly not all] of the British public are rallying around Charles III as he returns to London in the wake of his mother's death yesterday.  There may yet be hope for humanity.

Many out there will disagree with me, but I have no issue with constitutional monarchy.  Long live The King! 



Yesterday's (Thursday) attire included the recently purchased and altered navy plaid sports jacket from J. Press along with usual summer and early fall items long in the rotation.  The jacket is a silk, linen, and wool blend and feels divine to the touch.  

A real pleasure to wear.  So much so, that I will put it on again for a later trip out this afternoon to run a few errands after a slate of Zoom meetings this morning.



Following late afternoon mowing outside and a shower, the Grand Duchess and I will crack open a bottle of wine this evening for our usual Friday Evening Wine Night.  Tonight, I might suggest a white in honor of my late maternal grandmother, Vivian Jesse Bennett Roberts Stokes, whose birthday is today.  She would have turned 105 years old.

  1. Thank you, Heinze-Ulrich. A toast to the new King, to the late Queen and to your maternal grandmother. Also, my complements on the new sport coat. Quite perfect for this time of year.

  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
