Ensemble of the Moment: Suit Up!
I remember the days when my father went to work with a suit and a briefcase on hand. He doesn't wear that anymore; but whenever he has the chance to break out his newly cleaned suit, he does so with no hesitation. He has an understated elegance that only his forbears understood. I hope to embody it someday.
