The combination of gray and white is about as simple as dress can be, and, though it is likely that the plainness of the combination infringes upon at least one rule of dress promulgated by those same sartorial predecessors that I am quick to quote when it suits me, it seemed a reasonable thing to wear the other day to try on shoes (the thoughtful look on the wearer's face is inevitable when confronted with so many desirable possibilities). The gray flannel necktie contrasts a bit with the plain weave of the suit.
The shoe trying process seemed to be equally simple. Though sole-less for the time being, the replacement pair of slip-ons fit perfectly (the otherwise invisible change that accomplished this result is an increase in the height of the apron, to hold the shoes more firmly on the foot). The completed version may even arrive in time for the warmer weather for which they are intended.
