Back in law school, when I was still skinny, I had a very nice suit like that (it was vintage 1960s, in mint condition, originally from B. Altman & Co.), which I often wore as a summer law clerk. It made me feel very old New York riding the IRT subway dressed like that. Sadly, my middle-age belly would not look so dapper in that slim silhouette. Though perhaps if I grew a Van Dyke beard and adopted an eccentric persona, I could now pass for Bert Cooper if no longer Don Draper.

The suit sounds very cool, Eric. Did you receive any comments from the firm?

Eric Fink

I did get some compliments, though most folks in that office had no apparent interest in how they or anyone else dressed.
