Sage Advice.

If this were the opening paragraph to a short story…

“In Munich there are many men who look like weasels. Whether by genetic accident, meticulous crossbreeding, an early and puzzling migration, coincidence, or a reason that we do not know, they exist in great numbers. Remarkably, they accentuate this unfortunate tendency by wearing moustaches, Alpine hats, and tweed. A man who resembles a rodent should never wear tweed.”

…wouldn’t you need to read the rest of it? It’s from “The Schreuderspitze” by Mark Helprin.
