Of Bow Ties, Stodginess and Fall Uniforms

I love this image, the juxtaposition of the black suit and bow tie with perfectly weathered lace up boots in a warm cognac shade. It works so well. I always appreciated it when my profs wore bow ties with their suits or jackets. For some reason, the bow tie-wearing types didn't seem as stodgy as the rest.

Also, whether the resident male at SOTTO realizes it or not, this will likely be his Fall uniform. He has always displayed a penchant for collecting stodgy jackets. Somehow, they found their way to a box in the garage, but I will dig them out soon enough. I have to. The temperature in Portland has taken a precipitous dip. Fall is undeniably here to stay.
