When I met Kumar about a decade ago, he introduced me to the unique world of men's fashion. That initial arousal of my interest in this sub-discipline has grown and has been held ever since. Well, at the very least, I've been "sensitized" to it and can now spot (and smell!) a faux-pas from a mile away! And now, Kumar and myself are forming a dynamic duo (of sorts!) and together, we're endeavoring, to gently nudge and guide men, on to the path of sartorial "enlightenment."

Week Forty-six: Breaking out the Fall Wardrobe!
So Kumee had broken out his trusty 11 ounce navy corduroy suit and had worn it twice now since the weather dropped pretty drastically. If I am not mistaken, the first time, I was just too slow on the (camera) draw to take a picture as he walked out the door to head to work last Saturday or was it actually a weekday morning (?) - I forget - when taking a snapshot is kinda out of the question in the midst of the blur of maaaadddd activity that takes place, the short term goal of which is to drop off Jaden and Maya at daycare & Kindergarten respectively and in that order and make our way to work (on time!) - Yes, we are the typical modern urban family!
Today, I managed to get that picture albeit, a tad (understatement!) blurry. Kumee completely freshened up the look, though with a new black & white fine pinstripe Eton shirt and a navy paisley Corneliani tie. Up until today, Kumee had been wearing mainly, his four season suits - wow, who knew there were parallelisms between tires and suits?
Of course, Kumee's been due for a new winter suit, and had wasted no time in obtaining one, namely, a navy pinstripe flanel suit, well, at least, I am told, for I haven't seen it yet, because, although he did bring it home in a Harry suit bag the other day, it was promptly taken to the tailor's the following day for further tweaking per Kumee's specifications. I am safely assuming that it'll be rather snug and the pant length somewhat short when he gets it - yes, we do practice what we preach!
