I think I was on a bus. Got this vest for about $20 from JAB. Great for adding an extra layer of good-looking warmth.
See also the dimple on this tie. Not a problem like the last one. I prefer Countess Mara (often available on sale at Macy's et al.) for dimplage, although their ties are a bit more...fragile. Not by much, though.

1. JAB Executive ties tend to do this thing where you can get a good dimple in the front but only if you accept that there's going to be a side dimple on the left side which will constantly be trying to work its way around to the front.
2. Charles Tyrwhitt AND Paul Fredrick, my favorite mail-order shirtmakers, both have this problem now where the points of the collar just refuse to lie flat. This leads me to believe the problem lies with my body--perhaps my shoulder muscles moved around in a way that causes the points to catch on my collarbones as I move around. May need to start starching my collars.
3. Buckle up for safety!
