In what is absolutely the wierdest winter in my memory since moving to the United States, not only did was it warm enough to go without a coat this weekend, but I was actually able to get out and do these without dying of hypothermia (a bit dramatic, but its been a bit ridiculous out here in St. Louis temperature-wise.)
Picked up this suit at Banana Republic for under $100 due to what I'll call the result of a fortuitious combination of the right timing, coupon hunting and relationship management. Lately, BR has taken to sourcing some of their fabrics from Italian mills and when the price is right for one of these suits, I take advantage.
