Versatility

Quality and versatility are two of the most important things a man should consider when choosing his clothes. There's no reason that an outfit can't be equally appropriate for either duck hunting in the Scottish countryside (which I didn't do today) or scouring record stores in Harvard Square on a dreary afternoon (which I did do today).

I do love this red sweater, but I have a confession to make. It smells of moth balls, and as a result so did I by the time I came home. The funny thing is that having spent the entire afternoon scouring dusty second hand record shops, I didn't notice it until I returned home. My shirt, undershirt and possibly even my chest hair all smelled of it. Gross. I better go take a shower.

Dry cleaning is needed post haste.

Recently found your blog and have been going through it and enjoying the different style ideas that you are giving me. Today I stopped in the local Goodwill during my lunch hour and picked up a few items including a tie very much like the one in this picture and had no idea what to wear it with. Your picture just inspired me greatly. Thanks.
