Colbert Mimic Day 3

Hopefully close counts in horseshoes, hand grenades, thermonuclear weapons, and basic colors and patterns because that’s all I got – close. As far as accessories go, Stephen needs to test drive a pocket square or three. He’s got me beat on the watch, though. My watch is a cell phone.

Shirt is TM Lewin and Tie is Alfani. One of only two Alfani neckwear pieces I own. The other is also a red and black stripe that I wore last week. Today’s model dimples. And the geek that is me looks at “Alfani” and begins to imagine a story where Alf and Ani Skywalker meet. Yeah, I’m a dork.


Mimic Day 2

Maybe a closer match today, maybe not. At least I managed to get the shirt color right today. The shirt is TM Lewin and the tie isĀ  J.Z. Richards. This particular one has a copyright and a design number printed right on the silk of the tail:

Interesting that a fairly straightforward design would be copyrighted but there ya go.

Friday in the Rut

Another Brooks Brothers #1 on a Friday. With the same sportcoat, no less. Basically the same combo as this Friday and this one too. It really has turned into the Friday uniform. The shirt is from TM Lewin.

Not Dimpled

Pretty impossible to dimple this necktie. Believe me, I tried. It’s from Alfani and I got it on the cheap. It’s also 100% polyester. Obviously I didn’t read the tag before I purchased it. I still like it because it’s way out of the norm for me. It’s skinny and has horizontal stripes. But it’s fun too. Yeah, that’s right, fun.

The shirt is a Charles Tyrwhitt and the sweater is from Paul Fredrick. The question of the day is pop the mock on the sweater or try and force it to lay down and play dead?
