In the exclusive photo (at left) I am shown wearing a Brooks Brothers sharkskin 3/2-roll sack suit, a blue fine-striped W.H. Taylor spread-collar shirt, and a Robert Talbott repp tie from Richards in Greenwich, CT. I bought the tie in the mid-90s for my first job on Wall Street; it's a bit slim for my tastes, truth be told. The suit is a variation of the famous Number One sack suit first introduced in 1900, and, according to Brooks Brothers, "is the earliest and most enduring of Brooks’ innovations."
