Meeting for Coffee

Sorry for the awkward angle, my son discovered my camera and now the battery is recharging. So, no tripod on which to rely. I met a friend for coffee this morning and the chill in the air prompted me to pull out my favorite silk sweater. I wish I had one in every color. But black takes me far and Britches is defunct, so…

The trousers are by Zanella and the Sloops shoes are by A Suitable Wardrobe. This is how I prefer to do business casual these days. Sometimes, going tieless with a sportcoat just looks like you’ve forgotten your neckwear. Tricky stuff.

  2. Silk sweaters are great for a business casual as they are definitely a cut above any other yarn.
    Love the Italian tailored Zanella trousers, a favorite of my husband’s too.
    Stay warm and enjoy this sweater weather!

    Wonderful outfit, thanks for the inspiration. “… going tieless with a sportcoat just looks like you’ve forgotten your neckwear.” Agreed. Tried that once and felt that I looked like an extra in a bad 70’s crime movie.

    That’s a nice Bond Nato Strap you’re wearing, Chris.

  5. Iñigo, well, it is the 50th anniversary year. Good eye,

    Douglas, that’s what I’m here for. Thanks for the compliment and for reading.

    Marietta, I wish I had a dozen of them!
