Rainy and misty morning made for grainy pics.

Since I'm new here, I can't say that I know what The Duchess and the Flower Garden refers to, I'm guessing it has to do with your employment or something. Anyway, I can relate in some way, as my job doesn't really care for my beard. They seem to care less now that it's gotten bigger; it's easier to sport a cared for beard than to grow one (as in getting through the first few weeks).
Tie, watch and watch are amazing. The whole assemble is very good. The color palette, textures and patterns are spot on. Congrats on a great look.
