Once-a-Book Word: Sartorial

Some words are like a 360 tomahawk dunk. It’s fine to occasionally whip one out (boo-yah!). But if you use them too often, your fans will start to think you’re showboating.

Today’s word:
Sartorial (adj.)
I love this word. It’s a fancy adjective that refers to tailoring, or style of dress. And let’s be honest: You should be fancy when you talk about these things. When I see this word, I picture a snide, elegantly dressed man staring down his nose at me. He’s sardonic, sarcastic. A devotee of Jean-Paul Sartre? And you could slice open your finger on the razor-sharp sartorial elegance of his three-piece suit.
