Scene opens with a close-up of a man putting on a nice watch. He adjusts his black tie. His hair is slicked back, his beard neatly trimmed. He stands in front of a mirror and smooths out his shirt, tie, and black cardigan. He bends over to pick up a pair of casual blue Converse sneakers. He looks at the shoes with the outfit in the mirror, shakes his head, and puts them back on the floor. He then picks up a pair of black dress shoes, holds them up to the mirror, smiles, and gives a thumbs-up.
