This evening is the Garden Party at the Frick Museum, a once-a-year event for which the museum opens its gardens to the attendees (they are otherwise off limits to all save the gardeners).

The showroom was nicely designed, and all that it should be - well-lit, airy,...
Today's shoes are on the 224 last, which is less narrow (and more comfortable, for me, at least) than the 199, for which I have to go up a half size.
^^^^ Dennis, it's always a pleasure (for me, at least) to see your postings. As for the jokes, I was having flashback to my last year of Latin class, which was only shortly after the end of the last Ice Age.This evening, I've been invited by the son of a former colleague to the grand opening of the new showroom for KnotStandard in NYC. My former colleague wants me to teach his son how to dress; the son, I suspect, wishes to curry favor with his employer, with the...
