Old gray Mitt 

If you had my
trained eye, you would recognize that the gray has been combed in and
then given a smooth brush to make the temples just perfect. Now, when
old Mitt puts on a sport coat with a white shirt and a tie and denims,
he’s sure he’s the sexiest 65-year-old in America. How do I know this?
Professional experience from my barber days.

Now here’s a really big give away:

the
back of Mitt’s neck. Take a good look, and you will see gray at the
bottom. This is where Mitt’s barber trimmed — just a little bit between
colorings and, whoops, exposed some of Mitt’s gray roots. You read it
here, first, and I’d bet I’m right.
