My Halloween costume

I’m going to a Halloween/birthday party Saturday night. I haven’t worn a costume since junior high school, but we are supposed to dress up for this party. Originally, I planned on going as a baseball player, but this morning, I came up with a better idea. I’m going as a circa 1950 Bing Crosby or Frank Sinatra. After a little searching, I found a good fedora-like hat at Macy’s this morning. I need to get my dark suit pressed. Then I need to pick up a black bow-tie and a pipe. I have a picture of Bing with the kind of hat I’ll be wearing:

Anyway, I should be able to find a bow-tie and get my suit pressed before Saturday. So I will at least have something.
