Embalming fluid will be available at the bar for any who need a refill.
BTW, did anyone catch CSI-NY the other evening? Bridal couples were dying mysteriously. Turns out they were buying the wedding wear at a high-end second-hand store, and the clothing was being stripped from the bodies of the "dearly departed". The embalming fluids, specifically formaldehyde, was killing them.

My remark about wearing ascots only with spats was a winking reference to the outmoded nature of both. In a bin of accessories from Louis at Filene's Basement yesterday I found a lone ascot--gray with red pin dots. It occurred to me that it might be adapted as a pocket "square"--what do you chaps think of that idea as a means of making use of such ascots as you may own but, following Manton's sage dictum, no longer wear? All this talk of informal neckwear has prompted me to remember that I occasionally knot a silk scarf loosely round the open neck of a sport shirt or polo sweater. Because it's a narrow rectangular scarf and not an ascot per se, with flaring ends, it has more of a rolled than a draped appearance and seems less affected somehow (but of course that's only relative, I well realize.).

I see no reason why the ascot should be relegated to the dustbin of history. The ascot serves two useful purposes. It keeps the neck warm when wearing an open collar and it keeps the neck largely invisible. This is a good thing for men of a certain age.
