Time: 12:50pm Thursday afternoon
View: a sea of executives, office workers and shoppers rushing to and from lunch and meetings, work and shopping.
Attire: a sea of dark suits, grey and blue tones, white shirts, pinstripes, some tailored, some not, mostly uniform.
The Stand Out: A man in his mid to late fifties in a highly tailored and textured suit with a slightly heavier weight than those around him. The suit's grey, but it looks a little more expensive than others. It's set off with a smooth duck egg blue and dark brown Italian silk tie. He has an understated, slim gold tie pin.
He wears brown and white brogues in mint condition. They're not fashionable, nor are they overly ostentatious. They are, however, highly distinctive. So is his chocolate leather portfolio.
I saw this man for no more than ten seconds.
I remembered him.
