The trip home is a long one, involving as it does the train back to Milan, a flight to Paris and then the haul to San Francisco. I will be the guy wearing a blue tweed suit, black Edward Green slip-on shoes, a checked shirt, a grenadine necktie and the Rubinacci pocket square that is the immediate souvenir of the trip. Later there will be plenty of others, including dozens of knit ties, suede gloves, leather belts, shoe shine kits, canvas slippers and who knows what else that will be arriving over the coming months.
And I will wear a scarf.
