Drawing Attention

"Oooh, I like your bow tie," the cashier says after taking my order.

The thing about wearing something unusual, be it more colorful than the normal palate, or a notable item, say a bow tie, or a pocket square, or a nice hat, is that it calls to attention the nature of clothing. We're all wearing a costume, in some way, though that costume may be near enough to everyone else's to not draw attention.

"I have a date tonight," I reply, "with my wife."
