Episode 44: A First Suit, My Morning Ritual & Those Damn Parking Lots

I jumped back onto the saddle this week after a brief but fantastic trip to Palm Beach, Florida last weekend. I have a client down there who showed me the ropes in their little universe both in Palm Beach and in the charming town of Lake Worth.

Also in this episode, I talk about helping my nephew, a recent college graduate, with his first suit. Following my advice, he got a terrific navy suit from Suitsupply’s Blue Line, which comes at a very reasonable $399. For that price, they will send you three suits in different sizes just to make sure you get the right one. My nephew ordered a 38R, a 40R and a 42R. As I predicted, it turns out my nephew is a 42R. Now it’s off to the tailor.

With lifestyle, I go over my morning ritual, which started this morning with an deliberately unflattering (but honest) selfie I posted on Instagram, indicating exactly what I look like when I get up. It ain’t pretty…

How it looks first thing in the morning. #honesty #thehorror #frownies

Along with warm water with lemon followed by sufficient cups of coffee, it takes a village, spackle, sand paper, varnish and a soft buffing cloth to prepare me for the day.

To conclude the episode, I launch into a petty tirade about the hideous parking lots that scar Downtown Cleveland’s otherwise beautiful cityscape. I have ideas and solutions for these ugly black eyes on our urban center, and I let it rip.

Thanks for listening. Have a great weekend!

  3. Another great episode George.

    Check out what we call ‘the cheese grater’ in Sheffield, England. It’s my idea of an interesting multi storey car park (as we call them).

  4. Thanks, George! Fun stuff. I’d love to see more YouTube content! Love your extended videos!! Also, do you cycle at all during winter?
