To be honest, the weather has been much too cold for me to want to don shirt and tie for the last week or so. Thus, the random posts with me in a pea coat, duffle coat, etc. Yesterday, however, despite still low temperatures, I missed the feel of a nice sport coat. And, since it was in fact the coldest day of this spell, I layered up with a cable knit lambswool crewneck sweater from Brooks Bros., a vintage tweed sport coat from Southwick, and my Gloverall duffle coat over it all. The bow tie is one I bought last year from the Tie Bar’s special Jesse Tyler Ferguson tietheknot.org line of ties where proceeds go to support marriage equality in the U.S.
Like Vox said, there’s just something perfect about tweed and ancient madder. Though I’m under no illusions that there aren’t elements of this outfit which he would likely frown upon.
