After a week of praise for tweed, we return to earth. The blue palette in the photo of Lamborghini CEO Stefan Winkelmann is typical of worsted dressing, in Mr. Winkelmann's case enlivened only by the some of the tallest shirt collars in the western world.
The limited work week palette means we must use other elements to maintain interest in appropriate dress during the work week. Shirt collars aside, there are only so many ways to wear a blue or gray suit with black shoes, blue shirt, white linen handkerchief and a necktie with a blue or gray ground. And that's why texture is so important.
As another auto magnate, the late Gianni Agnelli, taught us, knit silk, linen and cashmere neckties add visual variety without straying from the appropriate.
That's how to come back to worsteds.
