Yesterday Ms. Streisand and Dolly catwalked all over town to see UP! -- it was sold out -- and passed by a drinking establishment with a well-heeled gentleman in a bow tie standing outside. How appropriate, and inspiring, because dandyism does not go out of style, especially when you can shop at FineAndDandyShop.com.
A good way to turn a respectable outfit into a dapper ensemble is to add a simple tie clip, or a patterned bow tie. It adds a wink without being annoyingly predictable.
Give me the humor of a tie clip done up as a paper clip any day, and a leather coin pouch adorned with a penny. For summer, wear a demure thigh-length short and match the color to the feather in your cap!
