The Century Mark

Yup! One hundredth post. I know there aren’t 100 different ties like my friend Brooke over on 100 days, 100 ties. In fact Brooke has surpassed the two century mark in that regard, if I’m not mistaken. Brooke and Will over on 100 Days of Ties got me going on doing a blog about my daily getups. I hadn’t really thought about it before and it’s been pretty fun. There must be some interest in the whole dressing up thingy because I get about 10 visits a day. I think that’s pretty good since I’m not really trying very hard for that. Of course I don’t have anything to compare it to.

Looking back, one of the things that sticks with me is how many different looks I can get with a handful of suits and another handful of sport coats and a bunch of different shirts and ties. Hell, even a white shirt can be made to look a lot different when paired with various suits and ties.

And speaking of a white dress shirt, given the pinstripe suit and semi-wild necktie I really couldn’t talk myself into anything other than a white shirt. I really like the big, fat herringbone pattern on this Paul Fredrick tie. But I don’t like the fat width and monstrous knot that comes with it. So be it.
