Yesterday when I posted about my excessive fondness for herringbone, the first comment was from a reader who asked what I wear on more formal occasions.

I was going to joke that if I can’t wear herringbone then I won’t go, and now, according to the latest issue of Free & Easy, taking such a stance may not be a bad idea.

For lo and behold what’s on the cover but a guy wearing his cherished herringbone jacket with his evening ensemble.

We all have our style icons, and my latest is a Japanese cartoon. — CC
