Orvis is offering a couple of items that I am naturally inclined to, but just can't bring myself to buy. It's not 1923, and I would look like an extra from a Merchant-Ivory film. Too bad. I already own enough marginally practical clothing that I don't think I can justify this set until I get drugged and taken to The Village.
I'm not saying 'never,' of course. Someday maybe I'll have a practical reason to buy a boater and saddle shoes. In the meantime, I'll just admire from afar. Anything to distract from the fact that the Nats are down 10-0 in the first inning.
