Otter's sartorial splendor

KTVB aired a segment on a new technology campus that is being developed between Eagle and Star. The footage showed Gov Otter outside hammering in a symbolic stake, and showed him inside addressing the gathered crowd.

I was struck by what he was wearing. Otter was wearing jeans, cowboy hat, tan Carhart coat, black leather vest, boots of course, and what appeared to be a silk neckerchief tied around his neck. He was also wearing, incongruously, a white shirt with French cuffs and cuff links.

The silk scarf and Frenchified shirt kind of worked against the rugged cowboy image. Looked sharp, though.
