A Country Lawyer Goes to the City
I got interviewed for an AU publication! I met the MBA candidate/reporter at Tryst, which was nice. I had the Chaucer's Cup infusion because I'm a total pushover when it comes to caffeine after 4pm. It was tasty.
Luckily, my $80-on-eBay fabulous tweed suit had just come back from the tailor in amazing shape, so we embarked on its maiden voyage. I spruced it up with cufflinks and a satin pocket square, both of which picked up on the blue in the diamonds on the necktie.
Tweed was all too appropriate a fabric--historically, worn in the country, for sport, on nature hikes, while hunting, that sort of thing. Since I now live in Falls Church a/k/a the Outer Hebrides (at least as far as my DC friends are concerned) and work in Fairfax a/k/a the moon, I might as well be a bumpkin.
Anyway, this is just more proof that if you give enough fabric to a good tailor, the result will always be a sharp-looking suit.
