Running from city to city – sometimes one day right after the next – the last thing I want to think about is keeping a regular blazer, pants, shirt, and tie in perfect pressed and steamed condition.

Winter weather has a tendency to depress, which is reflected in the dark colors many of us gravitate towards during the colder months. Black, greys, dark blues. It's natural.
