I dressed up nicely for a wicked witch a few days ago. She was green.
The occasion was a performance of the Broadway play Wicked at the Kennedy Center in Washington. The tickets were our Christmas gift to each other, and we picked a show date well in the future from when we bought them, and somehow ended up with front row seats.
I wore the second set of accessories that I had received from Harrison Blake Apparel.
This one, their December set, was based on golds and browns — a brown tie with white polka dots, gold and blue striped socks and a coordinating pocket square. The set also included a tasteful boutonniere, which worked well with the rest, and a bracelet made of wooden beads.
So, I left the bracelet out of my ensemble, but used all the other items with my charcoal grey pinstripe suit.
Just as with the November box, all the items are well made and coordinate perfectly.
Against a neutral shirt further set off with light grey suspenders, they added splashes of contrast and created visual interest. We attended the play in high style and felt very much a part of the Kennedy Center set.
Having received two sets from Harrison Blake, I can say their items are consistently quality, and appropriate for any business or semi—formal occasion.
Just be prepared to have an occasional oddity that doesn’t really fit. My wife snagged the bracelet, so it all worked out fine.
The show was spectacular, with surreal sets, effective special effects and marvelous performances from all of the actors and the orchestra.
It was our first experience at the Kennedy Center, but will not be our last. Wicked has now moved on from DC to tour around the country. If you have the opportunity to catch it this year, you should.
As noted in my previous review, the Harrison Blake Apparel Subscription Box is available for $25 per month, and each box includes a tie along with a coordinated collection of other items, providing the well dressed man with an easy way to build up an interesting collection of accessories to round out his wardrobe.
