Why Does Everyone Joke About Getting Sweaters For Christmas?
Very straightforward pima cotton v-neck sleeved sweater from JAB. (Thanks, Mater!) Mid-gray color means it coordinates well with the darker grays one usually finds in suiting. Suit is a JAB Signature Gold; necktie from a random brand at Davelle; Calvin Klein hidden-placket car coat from Filene's (requiescat in pace); Charles Tyrwhitt shirt with a great roll to the collar. For those cold, cold walks from the parking garage to the courthouse.
The only nettlesome thing about wearing a sweater with a tie is what to do with the bit of the tie that extends past the top of your belt. I have the best luck with just tucking it into my pants. It comes out a bit wrinkled at the end of the day, but it's, net, better than having your necktie peek out from the bottom of your sweater.
