In this article, the author describes the stylishness of the men who used to come to his house to fix things that have broken down. The author opines that on the whole they are very stylish men. The furnace man wears tight jeans and tight white shirts and shiny penny loafers with pennies in them and it seems as if he is going out dancing and not down into the basement to adjust the boiler. The mason looked like a bass player in a jazz band or a fashion photographer, someone on the cutting edge of cool. The piano tuner, who always wears grey trousers and a navy blue blazer has fashioned amusing stories about his wife who has a pet pig.
