With today being the third day of rain here in NYC, being cooped up indoors has let the tiny gremlins of the mind loose. During the lockdown, I have acquired certain items of attire, which, in my fevered imagination, I envisioned being worn together, assuming that I was the sort of gentleman who would host a fancy, but intimate "at home" formal party. Here below is the result of this rainy-day experiment.

Velvet jacket - Saks Fifth Avenue house brand
Tuxedo trousers - Ede & Ravenscroft
Shirt - Brooks Brothers
Ascot - no name brand, a gift from a good friend who envisioned me wearing one
Cufflinks - The Persian Shop, NYC
Braces - New & Lingwood
Pocket square - Harvie & Hudson, London
Shoes - Paul Stuart house brand

Of course, reality lies just outside one's front door, and as I anticipate the need to leave home this afternoon, and that the rain will stop prior to my departure, I conceived of a more practical ensemble to wear out of doors.

Shirt - Brooks Brothers

Your intimate and fancy " at home" formal party attire is just what the doctor ordered to brighten a dreary rainy day outside Boston! Imagination is what we all need during these challenging times.

Back to robot poses. It was hard to find an ensemble to complement the shirt. Maybe I should have gone with a 9cm or 10cm-wide tie, but I don't have many and do not mind the mismatch between lapel and tie (8cm) widths. Finally, today was a beautiful autumn day, so I chose to go with a multi-colored outfit.

It is sunny and cool here in NYC today, and it's been a busy day so far, with another errand to be done as soon as I have made this posting - a run to Cartier for a new watch strap and battery (at oh, such an awful cost, I am sure, Cartier being Cartier).

Not wishing to look like a ragamuffin upon arrival at 52nd and Fifth, I concocted today ensemble, though, in a senior moment, I forgot to photograph the assembled pieces prior to donning them - do forgive.

Today's tie is new - my first shantung tie in several decades, and my first tie from Chipp - a generous present from a dear friend.

The weather is sunny but cold here in NYC, inspiring me to don my heaviest flannel three-piece suit. Photos were a little late today, due to technical difficulties with the home camera (it is getting balky in its old age, I assume - like many of us).

The weather continues sunny, and a bit milder here in NYC. I played dry cleaning roulette, digging a suit out of the closet that hasn't been worn in about eight months or so, which, fortunately, still fits.

The weather, after yesterday's early rain storm, has cleared, and gotten colder here in NYC. I have opted to drag something unworn for a long time out of the archives for today, in my normal capricious way, and have shied away from the usual navy blue or grey suit syndrome. Let us hope that, altogether, it's enough insulation for a chilly afternoon.

If it's Tuesday, and I'm wearing a bow tie, it must be Bow Tie Tuesday.

The weather, though warming a bit, is still overcast and a bit breezy, making a three-piece flannel suit, a hat, and a scarf the right amount of insulation. With the formality of today's suit, I opted for my black Homburg, though, to be honest, of the three Homburgs I own, it was the first acquired and is now the least favorite. Live and learn.

Love the rig, hate the socks! Might I suggest that you consider what the USAF convinced me of back in the mid 1960's...black nylon socks always work and navy blue ones can be worn in a pinch! LOL. ;)

Thanks. I’ve had these socks since the spring and never wore them until today. Solid colors bore me after a while. I’m sure that this color pattern would be sure to make any 1stSgt lose their mind.

The weather has cleared and cooled down a bit from yesterday's monsoon in NYC. The temperature this afternoon will be ideal for a three-piece suit, a hat and a scarf - the overcoat can wait until tomorrow.

Today's suit I acquired some 11 years ago, and it's interesting to chart how I and my tastes have changed over the course of the years that I've owned the suit. For my current tastes, the suit is too full and the jacket a bit too long, but there is sometimes comfort in stodginess, and for accessorization today, I've channeled my inner academician.
