Today's attire

Excluding me, how many San Francisco clichés can you spot?

I finally figured out how to wear a tie without looking like a drag king. The Sartorialist helped me out on this one… Saying that you don’t have to do the full out suit-and-tie thing to make something like this work. For me, it’s a suede skirt and a parka that makes an accessory like a tie more personal.

Oh, and the clichés… it’s funny how I block them out of my vision because I see them every day, but there are a number of things going on in the photo…

You can learn how to tie a tie (there are several different ways… by clicking here)
