Harvard academics and their gear: not "trad" but from 2017

Thomas Forrest Kelly, the hero of all musicians. And a great lecturer, from my own experience.

Is that a tie or a draft excluder?

I can't stand it when men only do the bottom button of their coat up.  That fat bloke of Homes Under The Hammer does it as well. Other than that my only comments would be about the lack of dimple in the tie and complete lack of general interestingness in his look. Quite dull really.

I don't think that non 50/50 shirt looks so bad though.

Personally I find these Harvard academics far more pleasing to the eye.

Huh, I was just coming here to say that his only doing up the bottom button was pretty baller... Different strokes for different folks I guess... John F. Kennedy always pulled it off well in my opinion.

I remember some freezing winter nights, standing around trying to hail a cab when there were none to be found at a late hour, wearing a tweed sport coat and buttoning all the buttons and turning the collar up to ward off the cold .... 

in that situation I liked buttoning all three buttons in an attempt to be as warm as possible ....

That's the difference between living and masquerading. No problem with that.

Ever thought about an overcoat when its winter, with all the buttons done up, and a scarf, and gloves?

yes but on the nights in question I had to wear a sport coat and I thought this heavy number made of dense tweed from W. Bill would be warm enough ......I was streamlining, didn't want to be burdened under a mountain of wool, thought I would just Three Days of the Condor it ....

and buttoning up did work for me that night, my tweed sport coat justified its tweediness, and since it was New York a cab did come by after a few long minutes ....

but while I was waiting for the taxi I was fantasizing about an overcoat with all the buttons done up, and a scarf, and gloves .....
