Cool and Sunglasses: #30folds30days, Rising Peak Fold, Day 25

Some days, I walk out the door, and I know that I have it. Whatever it is, I got it. The sun shining, a fresh pair of shoes, and a well fitting suit. It all just comes together, and I feel…cool. Not in a superior way, but in a way that just radiates positive energy. You know when … More Cool and Sunglasses: #30folds30days, Rising Peak Fold, Day 25

Hangers and Things You Hang Onto: #30folds30days, Straight Stair Fold, Day 22

I was a pretty forgetful kid. I don’t know if that’s just a normal kid thing, or something particular to me. My head was in the clouds and on other things. Consequently, I lost stuff sometimes. Or a lot. But when I was eight years old, my father gave me his swiss army knife that … More Hangers and Things You Hang Onto: #30folds30days, Straight Stair Fold, Day 22

Discord and Socks: #30folds30days, Sprezz Prez Fold, Day 21

I was at a concert during law school, and it was a young guy playing an acoustic act in the Berkshires. He was opening for Jonathan Edwards (of Sunshine fame). And he was clearly talented, had a great voice, wrote well, and could play guitar. The one thing was, that his guitar was just a … More Discord and Socks: #30folds30days, Sprezz Prez Fold, Day 21

Dance and Dress for a Wedding: #30folds30days, Rolling Plateau Fold, Day 20

I went to a wedding recently, and from what I was told, I had something near a seizure when dancing to Taylor Swift’s “Shake it Off.” The bride told me she shook every bone in her body trying to keep up. Sometimes, I just can’t help myself. When I’m at a wedding, and the music … More Dance and Dress for a Wedding: #30folds30days, Rolling Plateau Fold, Day 20

The One Step You’re Missing To Tie A Bow Tie: #30folds30days, Two Ripples Fold, Day 19

In college, it was rare that you needed to wear a tie. I mean some people did, if they were in something dorky like student government. Then you wore a tie for meetings and stuff. So, at the very least I knew how to tie a tie. And more than that, I knew how to … More The One Step You’re Missing To Tie A Bow Tie: #30folds30days, Two Ripples Fold, Day 19

A Trip in the Dark, Risk, and Pattern Matching: #30folds30days, Dunaway Fold, Day 18

A few years back I was out with my then girlfriend on Lake George. We had taken the boat down to a restaurant right on the lake, you pull up, dock, and step right off to get a table. We stayed late with my friends and had a wonderful time.  The day turned into night, the … More A Trip in the Dark, Risk, and Pattern Matching: #30folds30days, Dunaway Fold, Day 18

Some Words About Denim: #30folds30days, Four Point Fold, Day 17

Denim is a quintessentially American piece of clothing. Which is to say that its origins are rooted outside of the country, and its trail through history spreads across the globe. Clearly, I’m still on the Fourth of July America kick. Legend has it that the fabric itself has its origins in France, coming from the region … More Some Words About Denim: #30folds30days, Four Point Fold, Day 17

Rules and America: #30folds30days, Five Point Fold, Day 16

I have talked a lot about rules on this blog. About icons of style, and things to do, and not to do. How to wear a suit, how to match socks and accessories, colors, patterns, fit, and a whole host of other things. Rules essentially. Guidelines on how to dress. I have also talked about … More Rules and America: #30folds30days, Five Point Fold, Day 16
