Breaking out the patterns

This morning was kind of cold and drizzling, remnants of the storm that delayed my post-holiday return flight by two hours. Since I got in late last night, I didn't really put any effort into figuring out what to work today. So, I figured that I might as well try out some new (as in, "recently acquired") clothing combinations if half the city was still out on holiday...and therefore unable to point a collective mocking finger at me.

One thing led to another and I found myself leaving the house wearing a two-tone plaid peacoat over a multi-tone houndstooth sportcoat on top of an argyle sweater. The only tie that qualified with this combination was a solid, slightly metallic tie. Sure, it seems like a crazy combination, but I think it just might work.
