I’ll be the first to admit that this ensemble is pretty uncreative and basic. An off white dress shirt probably would have added a fair bit of interest, given the gold coloring in the necktie. I didn’t have one ironed and, as today is trash day in the neighborhood, no extra time to iron one this morning.

The shirt is a TM Lewin Windsor slim fit and the necktie a Robert Talbott Seven Fold. I have not counted the folds to see if there really are seven. If you don’t know what a seven fold tie is then I suggest taking a quick look here. Since they are constructed entirely of silk with no lining, they tend to be expensive. I got this one off eBay several years ago.

Blue Monday

I had a pink Monday back in the beginning of December and mentioned that I was glad it wasn’t a Blue Monday. Boy was I ever glad, hindsight 20/20 and all. Road rage on the drive in, yelled at twice at church last night, so on, so forth. Sure would be nice to do something wrong before I’m the object of so much angst.

Bright and cheery Charles Tyrwhitt striped tie over a TM Lewin navy and blue, checked, spread collar shirt under a pinstriped, gray suit. The tie claims to be a seven fold but it’s really only got six folds.

Maybe instead of Fats Domino’s Blue Monday, John Lennon’s Nobody Told Me. Or Maybe some version of Mama Said. Or maybe the Mighty Zep’s Nobody’s Fault But Mine.
