Dress Down Days at work have taken on a different tone since the Casual Years have come upon us. But there was a time, even during those formal days when people changed for dinner at home, when Mondays and Fridays were dress down days. The impetus was dressing for the journey to and from the country. I can imagine a lot of tweed during the cooler months.
So with that in mind, today’s choice is a very comfortable, very old MT Alexandre tweed sport coat made for my father and my ubiquitous grey flannels and brown suede shoes. The only new addition is the brown, gold and green seven-fold Kiton tie, purchased from one of my favorite internet vendors of second-hand clothing.
Do you still buy ties?
