Apologies for the Terry Richardsonian look of the photo, it was taken about 23:30 after attending the theatre (“The Producers” from Virginia Repertory Theatre, go!) I was very pleasantly surprised to see some folks had taken the trouble to actually dress — at least in sports coats, if not ties — with the women very holiday sparkly.
Whereas the plain white shirt once signaled to me the man who had given up any claim to creativity, I find myself increasingly drawn to it for evenings out. Maybe it is my taste for the simplicity of a dinner jacket, white shirt and black tie that is to blame.
Three piece (two of which were worn to the play), bespoke grey suit by Gieves. RTW white shirt by Nautica, tie from Drake's deco collection. Out of frame, black brogues from Ralph Lauren.
