Fading Fast

Connoisseur
The weather in NYC has been cold and wet for the last 36 hours or so, and is only supposed to clear later this afternoon - not weather conducive to getting elaborately dressed up, hence today's more casual attire.

Sports jacket - Chester Barrie via Austin Reed (both brands now consigned to the dustbin of sartorial history)
Shirt and suede vest - Brooks Brothers
Trousers - Levi's
Pocket square - Ede & Ravenscroft
Boots - Magnanni
Cap - Paul Stuart
Face mask - New & Lingwood

Well done overall and I love the vest-and-jean combo in particular.

I'm thinking you need (notice how easily I spend your money) a classic grey or brown herringbone sport coat. To be sure, you'll bring your own flair to it with the outfits you assemble around it, but I think it would be a nice addition to your incredible wardrobe. It would have been fantastic over today's rig.

Over the years, I've owned Austin Reed suits and an incredible Austin Reed trench, which, at the time, seemed to be on par with Burberry.

The weather in NYC today is cool and breezy, with variable cloudiness, allowing one to wear a full complement of fall/winter gear. I had a hankering for wearing a three-piece suit, and to wear my Homburg - I am getting all my wishes fulfilled at once.

A woman friend of mine of very long standing (we've known each other since junior high) told me that there is an effort for ladies to wear pearls on Election Day, in memory of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg. I do not own pearls, unsurprisingly, but the cufflinks I am wearing today are set with a engraved field of mother of pearl - my small contribution to their effort.

Yesterday, the weather in NYC has turned sunny and has warmed up a bit. After Tuesday's posting, rather a blowout of all things sartorial, I decided to lower the visual volume a bit today, and also to recycle a shirt I wore Sunday evening for a couple of hours, while out to dinner (lifestyle shots from dinner, and after, included).

The weather in NYC today is more reminiscent of mid-September than early November - not that I'm complaining. It gives me the ability to sneak in another wearing of today's suit, a wool/mohair blend more suited to warmer months.

Is that your mask, held in your right hand? I swear to gawd, at first glance, I thought it was a blue fish! LOL, I think it's time for me to see the eye doctor again. In any event, as always, you are looking rather grand. ;)

Worry not, that was my mask, and not a blue fish in my hand. The blue lights illuminating the exterior of the restaurant building colored everything in their path.

@upr_crust, Your last two outfits have been outstanding and those two blue suits are incredible - color, texture, fit (except top one's pants a touch too long, 2nd suit pants' length is perfect) - I love them.
I agree that the trousers to the Ede & Ravenscroft suit are a bit too long - something that I will have to correct with my alterations tailor, when next I can see him.

Thank you otherwise for the compliments.

I ventured out to Men’s Wearhouse earlier today. So far, some of my trousers and one sport coat are able to be tailored (after weight loss). Today I thought I would rock one of my favorites, the Canadian tuxedo.

Sorry about the bad lighting

This suit fits you like it was bespoke. Outstanding!

The weather continues to be unnaturally warm and sunny for November in NYC, and I continue to cycle through summer suits for the occasion. Today's tie I've owned for a while, a sale item for which I could never find a use until today, and today's cufflinks are on their maiden voyage.

One more respite from my usual robot poses. Today, I was a guest in a live TV show in China. I was asked to pick a solid mid-blue or navy suit, if possible. I obliged. No reason to avoid a 3-piece though. I am glad I wore it, as the show was done on the rooftop of a historic building, and it was very cold.

Why not do it in a studio? The view should help answer that.

The weather in NYC has cooled, and the rain, predicted for all day today, has ceased, giving me the opportunity to dress up again, this time in fall/winter weight clothing. Included in today's ensemble are my latest acquisition, citrine cufflinks - a very definite visual statement (i.e. rather bling-y), but I like them - your judgments might vary.
