Tie of the Day

There is a spot on this suitcoat where the elbows are starting to be threadbare.  This is an irrepairable, inevitable and tragic moment in the afterlife of a suitcoat that was never really mine.  This picture can't adequately depict how rich the the threads in this weave are.  They pick up every color in the color wheel and yet manage to have a delightfully dour and drab overall tone.   This is the color of a suit coat that a serious man would wear.  So I'm dreading the day that I have to make peace with the threadbare elbows and say goodbye to this suit coat, but in the meantime, I wear it with elan.
