Red Tie Tuesday

A governor’s daily schedule can be hectic, so every little thing that eases the pressure can be a help. Which is why, as the Associated Press reports, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s schedule includes suggested attire for most of the events on his calendar. What, aren’t governors always dressed in business attire? Not if your Pritzker, who favors khakis and blazer over suits and ties whenever possible. As such, his calendar includes suggestions like “Business: suit and tie,” “button-down and pullover,” and “polo with Columbia jacket.” The gov retains final say, so anyone trying to prank him by suggesting big floppy shoes and a rainbow wig is likely to be disappointed.
