So the burgundy rollneck. This style has a respectable history. I have two J. Crew (RIP J. Crew) rollnecks from approximately 1988. They have been handy during this crazy spring quarantine season. J. Crew made solid sweaters. No kidding. Here’s one:

I give Judy the nod. Hers looks to have the neck rolled in, not out. A tube-neck?

It’s been a log week. We’re up to 77,000 dead from coronavirus and that wasn’t the lead story. Unemployment is at 14.7% and many are saying it’s much worse. That’s the highest unemployment since the Great Depression for those of you keeping score. So, it’s OK to wear a comfort sweater. I would have gone with pearl studs, but she loves the ruby (-colored at least) drops. Speaking of red, she seems to have toned down the strawberry in her strawberry-blonde ‘do.

Shields and Brooks! I love you guys. I used to hate Brooks, but his disappointment (I searched for the right word here) with this administration is so palpable I can’t help but love him, even in his narrow Willy Wonka-striped digs.

I am frankly concerned that Mark Shields, my darling man, is sinking. Witness two photos, just minutes apart:

Holy shit. Mark. MARK! Did Judy have to throw him a line? Damn Brooks is in Royal Oak, nowhere near Chevy Chase. Where the fuck is Judy? Help him out, woman!

  1. Hah! Let’s hope Shields’s apparent decline is merely exhaustion—feel like I’m sinking pretty fast too. Thanks for the laugh—much needed!
    Not a wild fan of the burgundy with the strawberry—blonder woulda worked better.
