Two days later, the same weather gets another shot, only this time the impending onset of Spring begins to make itself felt, if only a little:
A heavy jacket and sweater combo still keep me warm, only this time it's a navy blazer, and the sweater is off white silk. Brighter colors in the shirt and tie are a bit more cheery.
Wide wale cords and loafers are still in effect, but there's a mile of difference between kelly green and olive green. Still cautiously warm, still carrying a scarf and gloves in case, but this time looking forward rather than back.
Even though it still gets cold enough for the heavy Brooks Brothers Gloverall duffle coat, I can't help but swap the tweed caps for a baseball cap on a casual, knock-around day.
And though it may be snowing outside as I write this, I did go so far as to enjoy the first new pink wine of the season.
Whiffs of Spring.
p.s. tons of great new neckties in the Shop.
