Was finally cold enough to don the Duchess dark blue velvet suit last night. Yes, I continue to look like the Cowardly Lion.

Once again, Slate tackles the big issues of our day.

Does anyone else remember a time in the 80's when buttoning up one's shirt was fashionable? (David Lynch does.)

James had enclosed a clip-on bow tie in his package this morning (see previous post). Not having any bowties, I threw it on for kicks. The Missus took one look at me and said. "You look completely untrustworthy."

Perhaps there's something redeeming about bow ties, after all.

My sincerest thanks to my man James of A Fine Tooth for this lovely morning parcel. The jacket and vest are a perfect fit, especially in the sleeves. No alterations necessary! The trousers will take a minimum of tweaking in the length and cuff width, but there's plenty of material for Mr. Barbarino to work with. This has restored my faith in thrift finds. The fit is eerie. I wonder if this suit was once owned by my grandfather...

Just a reminder: For a short time, A Fine Tooth will be offering custom-designed, bespoke suits at cost for men willing to be photographed for their site. A Fine Tooth's tailor is world-renowned and has made suits for Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, Jason Schwartzman and many others. Cost will be less than half market rates. Contact James for details.

Off to the fundraiser party at Bartram's Garden last night. Suit by Duchess. Gray wool cloak by House of Smith (a wonderful gift from Bogman Bill). Ponytail by midlife crisis.
