I have and wear wool trousers, but I'm wearing khakis or other machine-washable cotton pants 4/5 days of the week.

I have a couple of kirkland vneck sweaters that are more than serviceable.

I also wear a quartz watch (skagen) as often as a mechanical.

I have several sweaters that don't fit as they should and I don't really care.

My briefcase is a newer model from coach.

On gdl's toggle-back links confession, I don't even own a pair of "real" cufflinks.

I own two leather belts total, and I almost never wear the black one.

my $35 Timex probably gets worn the most

+1 on toggle backs. "real" cufflinks are a pain

Interesting that they put a portait of FDR there. In the Bush years, everything in that room was a landscape or a battle scene.

How can you even tell what room this is? Eagle-eye Manton

Where does the WH get its artwork from? Special access to some sort of national collection?

Did they have a two-for-one, like so?



Do you recognize it? The landscape is flat and alluvial, prone to flooding.

That is the first floor West Wing lobby.

The WH can borrow art from the various USG owned art museums in DC. If you are an Assistant to the President (top ranked staff) you have this privilege for your office. You can't take just anything, e.g., the National Gallery's one Leonardo is off limits, but lesser works can be claimed for a time.
