Mrs. E. and I went to a birthday party Friday night last. It was quite the occasion with a tent, a candle bearing chandelier suspended amongst a garland of lemon leaves, hot and cold running service and fabulous company. The sport coat has a windowpane pattern that the vest picked up and the tie is a new Drake’s number worn for the first time. The guest of honor is known for his bow tie collection. The slippers went along for the ride since I forgot to take them off in the rush to get tot he party.
An odd vest is a good thing to have on hand for those in-between evenings that start out warm and, by the time cocktails have ended and the sun is down, turn chilly.
