It is 6AM. I do not have a post written. Protests continue in Egypt. England is telling me that the neckties they have sent me are the wrong size and, according to my calendar, the highlight of the current waking cycle will be meeting some fellow Style Forum habitués for cocktails later. I find myself considering just starting with the cocktails and forgetting the rest of it.
Being the kind of day that it already is, I thought we might as well share this photo of one of the visiting dignitaries at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Berlin wearing what appears to be a dark red dinner suit with belted trousers that, presumeably not coincidentally, matches the palette of the the woman by his side. I am not certain whether the trousers are the largest sin in this context though they are definitely in the running but if ever a photo has demonstrated the folly of attempting to dress to coordinate with the clothing of your date this one does.
Dressing to match your date is a no-no. 'Nuff said. Where are we meeting today anyway?
