[Juris] Dr. Who?

Wore this to an Irish pub in Dallas, for kicks, a few winters ago.  While I waited for my friends to arrive, one of the guys at the next table over kind of scooted over and said, "Bow ties are cool!"  I immediately knew what he was talking about, but it hadn't occurred to me that I was channelling Matt Smith.  I told him I'd forgotten my fez.

Madras bowtie from The Cordial Churchman (can't recommend her enough).  White linen shirt from Gap outlet.  Sweater and pocket square were gifts.  The jacket came, by way of eBay, from an old menswear store in Albuquerque, NM that closed in the 1970s when the big-name department stores started dominating the market.  I'd rate this outfit, wearing gloves and with the jacket collar turned up, at 30 degrees with no need for an overcoat.  I'm going to miss tweed when spring finally reaches D.C., if ever.

  1. I like it, but I think my own neck may be too large around to do bow ties well.  At least I do know how to tie them.
