  1. Wow Chris, that ensemble is just outstanding. I think I have similar items in my wardrobe so I hope you don’t mind if I treat my students to an example of your sartorial excellence. You have been such a great influence over the years. Thanks once again.

    I am now at the end of my teaching career, at least in its present form. Next term I will be a student once again to start my next and probably last career. Of course, while sitting on the other side of the lectern, I will have to temporarily rethink my clothing style. Dressing in the middle ground as you so aptly put it, is a weak point for me. It will be a new challenge to try to look elegant while dressing as a student. I must add though that it will be a fun challenge.

  2. Thanks Todd! Congratulations on your next phase. I mine instagram and find inspiration there. It doesn’t take too much thought if you know color and texture. Then it’s a question of comfort. Flannels, khakis, cords, moleskin, and even denim can go well there. Shoes are important. Desert boots go everywhere. A good chambray shirt or two will become your go-to.

  3. Chris, today I recreated your outfit above and a young woman whom I had never previously met approached me in the hallway to complement me on my outstanding style. She said it was much appreciated to see a man dressed like me. Of course, that was your style, so thank you so much.
