Deluxe Apartment in the Tie

Well, we’re movin’ on up.

Thanks, George and Louise (Wee-Zay!) Jefferson, for the inspiration for today’s (Thursday’s, actually) subject line. He may well be the blog’s only DCWT (Dry Cleaner With Tie) in history. One of my all-time favorite shows.

So, Thursday was Veteran’s Day, and my Tie du Jour was fittingly honoring to the men & women who have served, and are serving, in our military. I threw this (brandless, alas) red & blue college-stripe tie on a red, white & blue shirt. Very patriotic, don’t you agree?

Thursday evening I attended the Grand Re-Opening of the Premier Apartments at the 415 Howard building. It was a gala affair, attended by the new owners of the property, as well as city dignitaries. Of course, there were a few guys in ties (I missed a chance to get a pic of one of the owners in a SWEET bow tie), so here goes:

Marco Rodriguez publishes Shop Evanston (and Shop Andersonville, et al), a magazine that pushes local consumers to shop locally. He does a great job banding Evanston’s retailers together, and getting some local marketing executed for them. Marco is sporting a great blue strip.

Robert Adam is a Chamber event regular, and is the owner of Adam Insurance Brokerage. Here Robert eschews his usual solid-on-solid choice for a very cool wavy number.

Leon Mitchell is the owner of Phoenix Security, a professional security service in the Evanston area. He’s a regular at the chamber’s golf outing, and his plus-fours outfit is usually the fashion hit of the event.

Thanks for reading…Brooke
