    It's TWEED Season!

    The Tweed itself, for me, is probably too much even though I appreciate it. Maybe as a sport coat I could get on board. You and I feel pretty similar about pocket squares. Also, I feel like you, by itself, the bowtie is fine, but I don't see it working with that Tweed in anyway.

    Recently Watched & Favorite Movies: Personal Reviews & More

    When I can, I try to leave the conclusion out of the review so that it can be enjoyed fresh when watching the movie. Sometimes I have to include it or the review won't really make sense. When I do note the conclusion, I try to put in a "spoiler alert" if someone wants to avoid knowing it. I...

    Sweater Color over Burgundy Tie/Grey Pants?

    Pretty much everything those ⇧ two smart guys said. Oatmeal/eggshell is a wonderful all-purpose sweater color for just such a situation.

    Geezer Power!

    For some reason, Will's fallen off my radar (even though he tends to align to my libertarian lean) as he used to pop up in the papers I read or TV news programs I watched, but he doesn't any more. Maybe its because I read on line now and watch very little traditional TV. From memory though, he...

    What Are You Wearing Today 2.0?

    It's TWEED Season!

    Other than the houndstooth one, I've owned every single one of those at some point, and most several times. Light/dove grey is one of my favorite flannel-pants colors.

    Growing up in the '70s, I developed a love of movies from the '30s-'60s watching them on my grandmother's 1960s B&W which we got after she passed. Something about the style, the era, all of it appealed to me even as a kid and I've been a fan of those movies and that style ever since. I love the...
