A small pearl tie tack is always an elegant and delightful way to keep one’s tie neatly in place. Compact and effective.

Though that’s no critique of our more colorful and varied friends, and for those who prefer more colorful tastes, I suggest a perusal of Mr. Stratton’s varied, and charming collection..
As many of you who know me, know so very well, I do enjoy the wonder of modern travel.
This next time, soon, I’ll be back on the west coast, in the fine city of San Francisco. If you like my work, and have any interest in sipping an espresso, a scotch, or sharing a nibble, do say hello and let me know. (And if any of you wished to be captured in my camera, do drop naughty hints.)
On this July evening, well-into summer, a cool, fresh-breezed evening like this one whispers in your ear, saying “savor me,” “pause a moment,” and “feel the gentle coolness across your cheek.”

But tonight, tonight… is gorgeous.
