The Rain Falls Mainly on the Plain

Colorado gets around 300 days of sunshine a year. So when there has been several days in a row of cloudy, rainy skies we tend to get a little gray in our outlook. Hence today’s gray on gray on black look. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

But I really brightened it up with a white shirt and pocket square, right? Maybe I should have included a gray vneck sweater…

The tie is an absolutely ancient Ferrell Reed City of London. The shirt is a TM Lewin Windsor slim fit.

Or Kent, or Simple, or Small Knot. For being such a simple knot, it sure does have a lot of names. It is another knot that begins with the back side of the tie facing outwards. It does form a fairly symmetrical knot but even this early in the day I have found it difficult to keep it in place. There’s a pretty good chance I’ll be switching it over to a four-in-hand before long.

The tie is a Tommy Hilfiger. If you look at the right side where the knot should be going under the collar, you can see the tell tale contrast tail of the tie. One of the cool things about Hilfiger ties. The shirt is a Charles Tyrwhitt and the sweater is Lands End.

Yellow Tie Week

I hadn’t even thought about it until I started this post and saw yesterday’s tie. Two yellow ties in a row. This particular tie is a Saville Row brand made in the USA. Go figure. The shirt is a TM Lewin. The v-neck sweater is from Lands End.
