Question: Who are you wearing?
Jeff Swartz: I’m wearing SmartWool socks. I’m wearing Timberland shoes and Timberland pants. You’re going to laugh because it was a New York day, so I’m wearing… Oh God. I’m wearing a Zinnia blazer. I know this is a Brioni shirt. Don’t laugh at me. My wife got it for me. And I’m wearing… These are some Danish kind of glasses. I don’t know who they are. I got a Red Sox hat here because we got to carry the colors and I’m wearing a watch that I don’t know what brand it is. I don’t even think it has a brand. It’s a cheap old watch, but it was given to me by a man whose son died when he was wearing it and so I don’t know what brand it is, but he asked me to wear it to remember the sacrifice that others make so that we can be free.
