You know I love precocious little kids – and lil’ Arlo Weiner (son of Mad Men genius, Matt Weiner) is one of my favorites. He’s 8 years old (and a half!) and been wearing ties since he was in the 1st grade (most of which are clip-ons.) He always has a solid explanation for his fashion choices like:
“We were playing mini golf but it was right near a real driving range. Plaid is something you always see on the golf course so I thought these pants worked really well. It was hot that day but I thought the jacket was important because it’s the only solid and it brought it all together..
“I always wear a tie to school. I started doing that in first grade. Usually I wear fancy clothes and so if you’re going to wear a suit or a nice jacket like this one, you gotta wear a tie with it.”
