Absolutism Never Works

I wore this to teach last week – I love the little bit of edge that the faux leather cardigan adds to things. And you've got to bring a little edge to a lecture on constitutionalism and absolutism in post-Reformation Europe (absolutism never works was the ultimate lesson, thank you very much French Revolution). You’ve simply got to.

I love the look of a leather accent - always gives a nice bit of edge and polish.
