Keep It Simple: Gray And Red For Court

When you're going to court to argue about important things, simplicity is crucial.  Outlandish, or even unusual, clothing can distract from the more trenchant and incisive portions of your legal argument, of which there are, doubtless, many, along with subordinate clauses, interjections, and appositives, which are bad habits, especially for bloggers, who are, often, devilishly handsome, as bloggers go.  Here, a suit from Filene's by the now-defunct Hickey line from Hickey Freeman, tie bar (as usual) from JAB, shirt from Paul Fredrick, and tie from who-knows-where all complemented each other very close to the chest, so to speak, if you will, as it were.  Shoes were probably black cap-toes. 

If you take nothing else away from DD, take away the fact that all dress is performative, even if you don't intend for it to be.


  1. Awesome.

    Also, I like the colour pairings and the touch of sunlight in the photo.

  2. These are all great fashion designers that you named. I love how you paired the red tie with the powder grey suit. It creates a nice contrast and really makes the tie the centerpiece of the outfit.

  3. Sadly, I just this week sat down on something oily in this suit, and the grease stain didn't come out at the dry cleaners.
